Gordon (Gord) Herbert Nesbitt
February 23rd, 1938 – August 25th, 2014
It is with heavy hearts, but also pride and respect that we share the sudden loss of a man who was many things; a loving husband, father, brother, step brother, uncle and an amazing grandpa and great grandpa.
Gord passed away at the Cumberland lodge with a wonderful staff member (Nicole) by his side and having just visited, with his eldest daughter Darlene.
Gord was predeceased by his wife Donna (Fraser) in March of this same year whom he loved and dearly missed.
Gord is survived by his three children, Darlene ( Dan), Lyle (Raandi) and Kim (David), grandchildren Brandon (Hayley), Ryan (Chelsea) and Nicole (Garnet) as well as his brand new great grandson, Gavin and step great grandchildren, Abby and Emmit.
Gord was born in Glaslyn, Saskatchewan and was one of five sons who also had, four half-sisters and two half-brothers.
He spent his working life serving and protecting as a member of the RCMP entirely in the province of BC.
Gord and Donna developed life- long friends from every community they lived which included Lumby, Vernon, Kamloops, Prince George, Victoria, Vancouver, Ucluelet and finally retiring and residing on their beautiful little hobby farm in Courtenay in 1993.
Life’s loves and adventures carried on with hunting, fishing and enjoying friends, family and their property.
The family extends their gratitude and thanks to the amazing and loving team of health care and support staff at the Cumberland Lodge.
In keeping with Gord’s desire to help those less fortunate, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society, who provide therapeutic horseback riding programs for physically, mentally and emotionally challenged children and adults. PO. Box 3666 STN. Main Courtenay, BC. V9N-7P1
