    To me, #1 sounds like he went somewhere voluntarily and #2 sounds like he is dead.

    Your question can be changed to: What is the difference between the following two sentences?
    bhaisahab has explained the difference very well. This is just an elaboration
    He is gone. = He is no more. He is dead
    He has gone= He has gone somewhere. (may be to Colombo for some work.)
