Our deepest condolences from our family. I spent a lot of time with Uncle Gordon, Barb and family one summer. That summer Gordon was really into his garden. Uncle Gordon spent a lot of time with our family flying back and forth to work, mom would drive him to the airport he would leave his truck at our place. He loved to tease the nieces and nephews and always a friendly smile and always welcome into their home. We did a few trips to radium together dad and Gordon always had a good time visiting very very early in the morning. I will always have fond memories of you and as quoted above happy fishing

Dawn & Donn Mason:
Sending our deepest condolences on the loss of your father and grandfather/g grandfather. We have many fond memories of Gordon and his kind heart; he was up for a visit anytime no matter where he was. We will miss seeing him around from riding his bike picking bottles to most recently wheeling around at Co-op or Good Sam always with a 'hello'. He will be able to fish where there are plenty now...

Sincerely, Dawn and Donn
