He was born on the family farm in Windygates, MB. Growing up in a large family Dad was one of seven brothers and four younger sisters and he soon learned to hold his own. In 1967 he became the MTS district representative for Birtle and surrounding area, retiring after 34 years of MTS service. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and curling. He was a Lion's member for many years and served on the town council. Left to mourn are his wife Mary, of 52 years, his daughter Erin (Len) and their sons Brodie and Riley; his son Glenn (Sharon) and their sons Logan and Landon; and his daughter Colleen (Doug) and their children Tyler, Brett and Hailey. He is survived by siblings Orville (Mabel), Vernon (Beatrice), Duane (Gwen), Shirley Wiklund, Phyllis (Kelly) Klein, Lois (Roy) Burkett, Valerie (Ron) Land, Dale (Sharon), and sisters-in-law Ila and Joyce Ehnes and Liz Chesko, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.

  • We are very sorry for your loss. We will never forget the stance he took while guarding the public washrooms. RIP Gordon - Posted by: Clifford & Trudy Herman (Friends of the family from Rickers Campground at Lake of the Prairies) on: May 08, 2016

  • I will always remember Gordon as a funny and joking kind of guy. Remember curling against him many times and he was always competitive but also a a down to earth person who liked to have fun while curling. RIP Gordon. - Posted by: Rick Salmon (Friend) on: Apr 02, 2016
