Gordon “Gordie” Charles McCann was born on Sunday, November 15, 1925 to Roy and Tillie (Dahlhoff) McCann on the family farm where he lived his entire life in rural Tyndall, South Dakota. He attended country school and graduated Tyndall High School in 1943. After graduation, Gordie enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served in WWII Pacific Theater as a Storekeeper 2nd Class Petty Officer. Following the war, he returned home and took care of the family farm. On September 24, 1945, Gordie was united in marriage to Lenora “Lornie” Lang and four children were born to this union.
Gordie was very proud of his military service and was a lifelong member of the American Legion and V.F.W. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus and served two terms as Grand Knight. Gordie enjoyed bowling, playing cards, traveling, and was an avid fan of the Minnesota Twins.
  
Gordie died on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall having attained the age of 88 years, 4 months, and 29 days.
He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Lornie McCann of Tyndall; son, Greg (Diana) McCann of Tabor; daughters: Marie (Dennis) Duncan of Parker, Jan (Bruce) Holtquist of Waterford, Michigan, and Kris (Clark) Kelley of Sioux Falls; grandchildren: Grant and Holly McCann, Tricia Amen, Drew Duncan, Leilani Stewart, Melissa Reynolds, Jeni Holtquist, Audra Fullerton, Julianne Wipf, and Sam Kelley; and thirteen great-grandchildren.
