On Sunday evening Gordon passed away peacefully, at home, with family by his side, after 92 years, 4 months and 18 days of life. Born in Winnipeg, he brought his wife and young family to Calgary, in 1949, where they remained until moving to Kelowna 1996. Gordon was a very active

Kiwanis Club member for many years and a very well respected member of the water and waste water

industry throughout western Canada. Some of his

favourite activities would

holidays in Hawaii. Gordon was greeted on the other side by many loving people, as he was preceded by his wife of 60 years (Edna), his mother (Agnes) and father (John) and his three older sisters (Elsie, Margaret & Ina), as well as countless other friends and relatives. He will be lovingly

remembered and deeply missed by all the friends and family he has left behind. Gordon is survived by his three sons (Grant, Ross & Keith), two daughters-in-law (Bev & Del), six

grandchildren (Megan,

Gordon, Marc, Jenn, Jess & Jenny) and six great

grandchildren (Rhythm, Indy, Isabel, Claire, Shaila & Scott), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and other friends, family and
