September 11, 1927 – January 25, 2013
Born in Estevan, Saskatchewan to Ed & Molly Knight, predeceased by his parents and his wife of 52 years, Kathleen nee Stasiuk (Kay), survived by sons Robert and David (Doria) and sister Shirley Cordi.
Gordon was a dedicated family man, who made successful careers as a meteorolological technician and photographer. He also found time to serve his community on the school board and in the Canadian Reserves. As a retiree, Gord fished the coastal waters of Vancouver Island during 30+ summers and dominated the shuffleboard courts of Arizona under the winter suns. He travelled throughout the States and Canada as well as undertaking several European trips.
Gord enjoyed his hobbies, especially spending time with friends and family, often engaging in spirited discussions and debates. He will be missed and fondly remembered by those friends and family especially Lenore of Mesa, Don of Comox and Beryl of Estevan. His happy life cut short by complications of influenza, his remains will be interred at Estevan Cemetery.
A heartfelt thank you to the compassionate doctors, nurses and aids who cared for Gord in his final days. A memorial will be organized and announced at a later time.
