June 13th, 1936 – August 17th, 2013
Gordon, 77, of Union Bay, died of Pancreatic cancer in the Palliative Care Unit of Vancouver General Hospital. He is survived by his loving family – Barbara, his wife of 56 years and daughters Terri (Brock), Tracy and Libby; grandchildren Kristina, Matthew, Michael and Gregory; brothers Lloyd (Maureen), William (Judy) and Robert (Mary Ann); brother-in-law Ron Graves (Roberta); numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Known for his wonderful sense of humor, his adventurous ~ and generous spirit, he always had a project – big or small, he always found a way to achieve it. Retired at 45 he wintered for the next 31 years in Mexico. An avid traveller, gardener, outdoorsman, retired owner of Gordon Gas Service, he loved to tease, read, dance, dinner and Sequence with friends but most of all he loved his family and home. A life well lived we’ll sorely miss his good humour, twinkling eye and passionate zest for life and the next adventure. Cheers, Gordon.
A Celebration of Life was held Sunday, August 25th in Vancouver. If friends so wish, a donation in his memory would be appreciated to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund at the B.C. Cancer Foundation. 150 -686 West Broadway, Vancouver, B.C. V5Z 1G1
