Wm. "Gordon" Bacon, 88, passed away on Feb. 18, 2017, in Somerset.
Gordon was born in Barren County, on Oct. 16, 1928, the oldest son of the late Charlie and Lottie Nuckols Bacon.
He was a graduate of Temple Hill High School, the University of Kentucky and North Carolina State University. Gordon was an extension Agent for 4-H in Pulaski County for more than 20 years. After retirement from the extension service, Gordon enjoyed working as a real estate agent. He was an elder in the First Presbyterian Church of Somerset, and active in Somerset Kiwanis Club, Farm Bureau board and numerous other local organizations.
