Oct. 19, 1936 – March 1, 2018
Gordon Dreisbach passed away March 1.
Gordon was born Oct. 19, 1936, raised in Los Angeles, California and completed his Catholic education in Los Angeles and Santa Monica, California. He served his country in the Army as a paratrooper.
He became a stockbroker after his Army service, then an investment counselor and real estate developer and property manager.
He and his wife Linda spent 28 years on a small horse ranch in Acton, California where their three children were raised. He was president of both the local school board and Little League. He loved traveling in the family motorhome, snow skiing in the winter and water skiing in Lake Havasu in the summers. Later, he traveled with Linda and friends in the motorhome to visit golf courses across the western United States.
After their children left for college and then on to jobs, Gordon and Linda moved to Lake Havasu City in the late 1980s and became members of the London Bridge Golf Course. Golf there became his passion and he played as often as he could, making many dear friends. During the early 1990s, Gordon was active in the Lake Havasu Chamber and PED.
He was a wonderful, loving husband, father, grandfather and friend and will be so terribly missed.
Gordon is survived by his wife of 55 years, Linda; their three children, Jennifer Luzzi, Jeff Dreisbach, Scott (Kristin) Dreisbach; his seven grandsons: Garrett, Logan, Taylor, Peyton , Trent, Devin, and Dane; sister Diane Whitmore of California; and uncle, Fr. Charles Dreisbach, of Oregon.
There will be a remembrance celebration and gathering of family and friends on March 31 at Lake Havasu Golf Club (formerly London Bridge Golf Course) at 5 p.m.
