Gordon was born March 8, 1935 in Chatfield to Elvin and Anorah (Kolstad) Dahl. He grew up on the family farm in rural Pilot Mound, attended country school and Chatfield schools, graduating from Chatfield High School in 1953. He was employed for a few years as a truck driver hauling milk and then was employed at IBM in Rochester in 1957. Gordon had a 34 year career at IBM, retiring in 1991.
Gordon was married on Oct. 26, 1957 in St, Charles to Marilyn C. Kahring. Following their marriage the couple lived in Rochester for a number of years. They were later divorced.

The Dahls lived in Rochester before moving to Stewartville in 2000. Gordon was a member of the Stewartville United Methodist Church. He and Carole traveled in the winter to Arizona, where Gordon was an active member of the First Southern Baptist Church in Wellton, Arizona. They enjoyed travelling together including trips to Mexico, Canada and much of the US. Gordon was a sportsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with his young kids up north and snowmobiling. He was an avid year round golfer who started golfing in his 50's following his retirement and had knocked in nine holes-in-one! He played fastpitch softball including a year with the North Stars team from Rochester that won a Minnesota State Championship.
