Gordon Mason Jr. Obituary
Gordon F. Mason Jr.

Gordon F. Mason Jr, 75 of Spring Hill, Florida (formerly of Windsor, MA) died May 25, 2016 peacefully at home. Born in Dalton, the oldest son of the late Gordon F Mason Sr. and Lucile Emerson Mason. "Jeff" attended Dalton schools and graduated from Lenox Prep school in 1959, where he was a lettered athlete. He also spent two years at Northeastern and 1 year at North Adams State College. After working at Crane & Co for 2 years, he became a Ballistics Engineer at GE until his retirement in 2000. Jeff was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed competitive night hunts, where he won multiple Grand Night Champion titles. A passionate sports fan, he loved baseball and the Red Sox the most. It was impossible to find him without his nose in a book, the Sox game on the radio in the background. "Pop" also loved puzzles, the crossword in the Herald, and had a detailed full scale model train of the Berkshires in his basement. A Civil War buff, he appreciated local and national history and could be found metal detecting on weekends - always on the hunt for Hessian treasure from the Revolution. A gifted storyteller, Jeff was quick with a joke that would bust up the whole room and could entertain for hours and hours. Many of his stories took on a life of their own, and before you knew it hours would have passed without any slack in interest. Jeff is survived by his wife of 55 years Joyce Haskell Mason. He's also survived by four daughters, Karen Grunow & husband Jim of Marlborough Ma. Kelly Amrhein & husband Gerard of Natick Ma. Kristine Sullivan & husband Jimmy of Hinsdale and Shauna Gaskin & husband Jeremy of Gosport England. He also leaves 11 grandchildren (Justin, Ryan, Andrew, Britany, DJ, Bradley, Vincent, Jocelyn, Finn, Willow, Indigo), and one great-granddaughter Jaylynn. His brother Peter D Mason and wife Vivian of Hinsdale as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
