Gordon K. Munk
1938 – Dec. 12, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Gordon K. Munk, loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, and friend, on December 12, 2012. Gordon was born in Thorsby in 1938; he spent most of his youth in Breton, AB. Gord completed his Mining Engineering degree in 1961 at the University of Alberta. Celebrating 48 years together, Gordon and Margaret married in 1964, and raised their two boys in Edmonton. Following a successful career at Northwestern Utilities, Gord and Marg retired to Salt Spring Island in 1996. He is survived by his wife Margaret, sister Linda Hein (Dan), two sons Kevin and Trevor (Jill), grandchildren Sydney, Samantha, and Stephan, and extended family.
Gordon’s thoughtful, kind nature will be remembered by his family and many friends. He was a gentleman in the true sense of the word.
A memorial service was held December 17 on Salt Spring Island.
