Alex Gordon Death: Pittsburgh City Paper as of late lost one of our own. Our overseeing supervisor, partner, and companion Alex Gordon ended his own life. The accompanying commendation has been written in his memory by his nearest partner and dearest companion in our office.
Alex Waters Gordon kicked the bucket on Thu., Oct. 15. He is made due by his life partner, Jes Bogdan, his folks Myles Gordon and Marjorie Waters, his sibling Sam, sister-in-law Ashley Downs, and nieces Anna and Emory, and his feline Lily.
In his life, Alex consistently refreshing great composition, regardless of whether a main tune verse, a long New Yorker profile, or a historical center display composed by his mom. It’s quite reasonable, at that point, that Alex merits as great of a commendation as could be expected under the circumstances, one that he himself would appreciate perusing, summarizing all that made him an incredible individual and companion. It is difficult to remember the entirety of that for one brief bit of composing, yet he was a writer, as well. He’d comprehend the requirement of word tallies, and the trouble of an author handling an excruciating subject.
Alex was conceived on June 21, 1987 and raised around Boston, Massachusetts and Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. He went to the University of Pittsburgh, remaining in the city longer than 10 years after he graduated. He started working at Pittsburgh City Paper in 2015, beginning as an associate postings supervisor and creating the Lynn Cullen Live show, before turning out to be partner proofreader, and in the end overseeing manager.
Because of monetary strain because of the pandemic, Alex was furloughed in July, however his nonappearance was felt each day. Each and every individual who worked with him adored him, and he cherished working at the paper. He even met Jes through work, as she worked in the postings division before him.
As an editorial manager, Alex improved everybody’s composition. He fixed mistaken accentuation and incorrectly spelled homonyms. He was extraordinary with a punny feature. He knew when language was excessively extravagant or excessively ambiguous. At the point when somebody was stuck on a story thought, he helped them conceptualize, urging them to drive further. He got energized when another person composed an intriguing story since it implied he got the opportunity to understand it. As an author, he cherished expounding on remarkable individuals and spots, only for entertainment only.
