Christopher James “Choppy” Gordon
March 16, 1994 – October 20, 2017
Christopher James “Choppy” Gordon, 23, a very loved lifelong resident of New Albany, MS, gained his wings on October 20, 2017 at his home in New Albany. He passed from natural causes.
Choppy was born at Baptist Memorial Hospital – Union County on March 16, 1994 to his loving parents, Mark and Becky Gordon of New Albany. They were wonderful parents who loved him dearly.
Choppy was the middle child of 3 boys, whom he loved very much, Matthew Gordon, 25, and Johnathon Gordon, 19, both of New Albany, MS.
On January 3, 2015 at Lighthouse Baptist Church in New Albany, he married his best friend, Skyla Dillard Gordon of New Albany. The two of them brought into the world to love and cherish forever, two daughters, Annah-Reece Daeghan Gordon, 5 and Kainbreigh Mattalynn Gordon, 4. They both lit up his world and were his everything. He was the Best Daddy in the whole world! They were always by his side. He taught them so many things. Definitely a Mr. Mom of two little girls, he knew how to fix bows, play dress up, polish nails and wipe dirt off their faces. They both loved Choppy as much as their hearts could hold. He was an all around wonderful person. He always had the biggest heart and sweetest smile. So many cherished him. He was a friend to everyone.
He attended West Union School where he had lots of friends that all cared so much for him. He worked at B & M Metals, a family owned business that his parents owned.
He loved his job. Always doing something, whether it be operating a crane, cleaning copper, weighing cans or just eating snacks with is feet propped up. He enjoyed being with is family everyday.
Choppy was “One of a kind.” It was new, he didn’t care for it. Just an old scrap yard man. He had a love for antiques. He enjoyed making people laugh, mud riding, music, spending time with his babies, being with family and friends, working on things and being adventurous. He loved to go fast. His mischievous spunk started when he was very young. One of his many childhood memories was when he cranked a bulldozer with a pocket knife that his Papaw Curtis had given him and about scared his Momma to death. Jumping up and down saying “Pweez, don’t call my Daddy pweez.” But Mark came home to turn it off, probably with a smile on his face because he loved his boys. And Lord knows, Choppy was ALL boy who loved his Momma and Daddy both so much. He was always happy go lucky and it never took much at all to make him happy.
They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal. But neither time nor reason will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache, that lies behind our smiles, We have broken down and cried, We want to tell you something, There won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without.
Don’t shed a tear. I am with God. In spirit I am here. I kept the Faith, my spirit is light. I am at Peace now, I fought a good fight.
