Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at the age of 54 years, while at home with family by his side. Gordon leaves to mourn: his wife Nancy of Campbell River, BC, daughter Heather (Georges) Stagg of Winnipeg, brothers and sisters: Barb (Walter) Thurston, and Brian (Val) Chambers of Winnipeg, and Glen (Joanne) Chambers of Campbell River. Gord will also be missed by numerous nieces, nephews, and friends in both Winnipeg and Campbell River.
Gordon was born February 8, 1952 in Winnipeg and was raised in Transcona. He was employed with Air Canada in Winnipeg before retiring to Campbell River on Vancouver Island. Gord enjoyed travel and golf and was an active member of the Rossmere Golf Course in Winnipeg where he was affectionately known as “Gordo”. He had a great love for the outdoors and he spent many enjoyable days fishing for salmon during his retirement in Campbell River. When not out on his boat ”The Nancy J”, Gordo could be found with good friends at Freddies in Campbell River.
The family wishes to express our gratitude to Dr. J. Kroese, Dr. R. Ramsey, and to all the nurses and home support team, for their excellent care of Gordon during his illness. The family would also like to express their sincere appreciation to the ALS Society for all their assistance during Gord’s illness.
