Peacefully, on January 29, 2020, Gordon Bernhardt passed away after a lengthy illness with Alzheimer's.
Gordon is survived by his loving wife of 33 years, Bonnie; his three children, Craig, Cathy (Kirk) and Lisa (Curtis); his stepchildren, Jennifer (Norman), Tim (Kendra) and his beautiful grandchildren, Robert, Justin, Joseph, Matthew and Joshua; his brother Clifford (Bev), sister Eileen as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Gordon worked at CP Rail for 41 years as a carman and first aid attendant. He lived life to the fullest. He had a love of animals with a special interest in birds and fish. He knew his way around a garden and was extremely knowledgeable with all varieties of flowers and plants.
He was involved with many organizations such as the Manitoba Canary and Finch Club, St. John's Ambulance and many more. Gordon had several recognizable achievements in his lifetime, especially his 175 blood donations presented to him by the Lieutenant Governor, and serving on the Department of Natural Defense.
He loved to make people laugh and had many stories to tell; each one in theatrical detail.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.
Service will be held on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 1:00 at Korban Funeral Chapel, 907 Main Street.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • My condolences, Bonnie, on the loss of your husband. He was a pleasant and cheerful person and brought a ray of sunshine into the room. May your memories sustain you in the days ahead. - Posted by: Joan Klym Dueck (LWML member at St. James Lutheran Church in Crestview) on: Mar 03, 2020

  • Our most profound condolences to Bonnie and family. I worked with Gord, as a carman at CPR and was also involved in first aid with him at St. John Ambulance and also at work, although not to the extent that Gord was. I associated with him at work and socially outside of work, at union banquet functions with my wife Jeannie and we even met up with Bonnie and him in Mexico one year. Never a dull moment with Gord around! After retirement, I saw less of him, and later on, I suppose because of the Alzheimer’s, even less; but the memories were never forgotten. Rest In Peace Gordon, you are remembered. - Posted by: Jim & Jeannie Clemis (Friends) on: Feb 05, 2020
