I think you got some of his name mixed up. His name was Gordon W Sassman, not "Walter Gordon".

He was born Gordon Wallace Sassman in Travis County, Texas. Austin is in Travis County.


Below are some links to his birth record and census records of him with his family

1940 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K4QM-R64


He was lost at Sea. His listed twice on Find A Grave. Once at National Military Cemetery and another marker honoring him at the same cemetery as mother Myrtle was buried in Austin, Texas.
