Gordon W. Schiefelbein

July 14, 1934 — August 22, 2022

Lake St. Louis, MO

Gordon W. Schiefelbein, 88, from Lake St. Louis, MO was called home to be with his Lord and Savior peacefully with family at his side on August 22, 2022, in Blue Springs, MO.

Gordon was born in Chicago, IL on July 14, 1934, to Walter and Lillian (Nyberg) Schiefelbein. He attended school in the Chicago School District his whole life, graduating from William Howard Taft High School in 1952. It was there he met his future bride, Barbara Gliot. After high school Gordon briefly attended Kings Point Merchant Marine Academy. He then enlisted in the United States Air Force. After enlisting he was stationed at several bases, coming back to Chicago to propose to his love, Barbara, before heading out to Officers Candidate School and graduating in 1957.

Gordon and Barbara were married June 21, 1958, and watched their family grow with five children while being stationed around the world. Gordon was proud to serve as a pilot in the USAF for 25 years flying multiple aircrafts including cargo, rescue, and training planes. Gordon attained the rank of Major in 1968 – an immensely proud moment for the family. After an exciting and successful career in the Air Force, Gordon’s love of flying could not be stopped so he continued his flying career working another 20 years teaching flying at Flight Safety International in St. Louis, MO.

Although Gordon loved flying and was proud to serve his country, Gordon’s greatest love was his wife and family. Activities they loved together included boating, fishing, golf, Boy Scouts with his sons and travel.

Gordon is survived by his wife, Barbara, of 64 years; daughters Carol Hallam and Susan (Terry) Nelson; sons Douglas (Cheryl) Schiefelbein, Paul (Susan) Schiefelbein and Mark (Courtney) Schiefelbein. Barbara and Gordon are blessed with ten grandchildren: Sarah (Regan) Foy, Ben Hallam, Jennifer (Sean) Miller, Julie (Adam) Brown, Jessica (Chad) Collins, Lauren Schiefelbein, Matt (fiancé Hanna Teer) Schiefelbein, Brooke Schiefelbein, David Schiefelbein and Kameron Schiefelbein. They also have eight great-grandchildren: Rylee and Reagan Miller, Claire and Connor Brown, Lilly, Carter and Anna Collins and Bennett Foy. Gordon was reunited in heaven with his family: parents Walter and Lillian Schiefelbein, Richard and Gail Schiefelbein, Raymond and Rona Schiefelbein, Joanne and Jack Ross and niece Karen McClellon.
