Sept 19, 1921 – Aug 30, 2014
Gordon was a lifelong resident of Comox, born at St. Joseph’s, living on the family farm his entire life except for his service with the R.C.A.F. during WWII. Dad’s home and property were where he was truly happy.
Dad was predeceased by his wife Alice, their very dear son Larry, two sisters Marion and Nina. He is survived by his daughter Sharon (Bob Adamschek) and two grandsons Curtis and Adrian, brother William (Vi) and daughter-in-law Jean. He leaves 7 great-grandchildren Heather, MC, John, Emily, Abigail, Katie and Bruce. Great-Grandpa really enjoyed the visits he had with his grandchildren.
Gordie was well respected in the mechanical circle. He was able to fix most anything. If no one else could, he would do his best to find a way often; fabricating parts or bypassing with another solution to fix the problem. He applied this method to his life as well. He was a man of integrity. He was humble, kind and honest, always willing to lend a hand even if it was not expected. His idea was that if you could see a need, you need not wait to be asked, he just pitched in to help in any way he could.
We love you and miss you Dad/Gramps/Fritter. You will be forever in our hearts. Per ardua ad Alta
