passed away peacefully within his home on July 8, 2011 at the age of 83. Gordon is lovingly remembered and missed by his wife of 58 years Marian, daughter Jacqueline (Randy) and grandsons Jonathan, Andrew and Logan. Born 1928 in Openshaw, Manchester, UK, Gordon served as a Red Beret with the Allied Forces in Germany after WWII, after which he immigrated to Canada. He began his 25 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces as a photographer, which provided him with the experience of travelling much of the world. He retired and moved to Salt Spring in 1978 where he enjoyed retirement for 33 years. Our gratitude extends to the Home Care Nursing Team on Salt Spring Island for the excellent care they provided Gordon through their compassion, unfailing support and hugs (especially Michelle, Maureen, Karen, Sharon, Stacey and Sharon) and to
Dr. Crossland, BC Ambulance Drivers,
Lady Minto Hospital Staff, Home Care Aides and Dr. White. As per Gordon’s wishes, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please
consider a donation to the
Salt Spring Island Pathways, which Gordon loved to ride his scooter on.
