Obituary for Gordon L Main

Gordon L Main

Gordon was born on April 22, 1953 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa the son of Harold and Anna Mae (Weaver) Main. He graduated from Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids, IA. And received an associate’s degree from Kirkwood Community College. He spent many years working road construction and in a landfill operation. He enjoyed those years until he lost a leg due to cancer… or as he told his grandchildren “to the Wapsigator”.

He had a great sense of humor and a wonderful outlook on life. He taught all his children and grandchildren many things from, make sure you work hard, and don’t let things bother you, too “there’s never too many fishing poles.”

He was married twice, first to Phyllis Selck, then to Kathy Hilmer, and is currently with his girlfriend of seventeen years Kathy Phelps, who ended up being the only one who could handle him.

Gordon is survived by his girlfriend; Kathy Phelps, Independence, IA., five children; Jennifer (Wyatt) Meyer, Strawberry Point, IA, Chris (Tracy) Main, Mercer, MO, Rick Main, Stacy Main, and Sara Main of Independence, IA. Kathy’s daughter; Christina Leach, Cedar Rapids, IA, seventeen grandchildren, three great grandchildren, a sister; Laurie Whightsil, Cedar Rapids, IA, a brother; Tom Main, Lansing, MI, and his best friend; Dave Fisher of New Mexico.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2 PM Sunday, September 17th at his home in Independence, IA.
