Gordon (Gordo) Wednesday ROUTH


Gordon (Gordo) Wednesday

Nov 6, 1955-March 28, 2012

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Father. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

Survived by sons Jordon Routh, Jevon Routh (Stephanie Forcier), Father Donald Routh, Mother Ealanor Smith, Sister Yvone Routh, Brother Michael Routh, Mother of his children Glenda Kirkland, Gords best companion Scamp and close friends {you know who you are}.

Gordo’s life was spent fishing, “driving truck”, sailing, but most of all spending every minute he could with his proudest accomplishment; his boys.

We will think of you often and when we do a smile will come upon our faces. WE LOVE YOU DAD!

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gordon’s honour to the BC Cancer Society.

Sail On, Sail On by Thomas Moore

Sail on, sail on, thou fearless bark–

Where’er blows the welcome wind,

It cannot lead to scenes more dark,

More sad than those we leave behind.

Each wave that passes seems to say,

“Though death beneath our smile may be,

Less cold we are, less false than they,

Whose smiling wreck’d thy hopes and thee.”

Sail on, sail on — through endless space —

Through calm — through tempest — stop no moreL

The stormiest sea’s a resting-place

To him who leaves such hearts on shore.

Or — if some desert land we meet,

Where never yet false-hearted men

Profaned a world, that else were sweet —

Then rest thee, bark, but not till then.

A Celebration of Dad’s life will be held in the next few weeks, please check back in next weeks paper for location and time.
