Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I was greatly saddened, and frankly shocked, to hear if untimely passing of Gord. Our connection started with attending Epiphany Lutheran Church where Gord's son, Dwayne, played the organ for our church services. Judy and I got to know Gord and his wife better at Winnipeg Goldeye baseball games where Gord and his wife sat in the same section behind home plate as we did - only a few rows higher. Gord was always friendly, quiet and engaging to chat with in between innings or when we went up and down the stairs to our seats at the Goldeye games. Judy and I would like to pass our sincere condolences to the Muth family during these difficult times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God bless and give his divine comfort to your family. - Posted by: Ronald (Ron) S. Smith (friend) on: Apr 19, 2021
My condolences to the Muth family and Connie. I had the pleasure of working at the Windsor Park Safeway where Gordy, or Mr. Muth was the store manager. I was working holiday or sickness relief when I was going to school. I always remember Mr. Muth when he came into the store each morning. He always had a smile on his face, very energetic and had a great personality. What a great way to meet each day. However, I might say, I missed this smile one morning that I was not working that night in his store. I had filled in several nights before. Apparently, two night stockers on the store crew had an argument on who had the faster vehicle. I believe one had a Chevelle SS 396 and the other had a motorcycle. At lunch break at 4 AM that morning they decided it. As Windsor Park Safeway had a hugh paved lot, they both lined up at the far end of the lot and who ever reached the front of the store won. They were off and word had it the motorcycle won. The car stopped in time. However, when the motorcycle rider realized he could not stop in time, he bailed from the bike. The bike struck the curb of the sidewalk in from of the store and the bike catapulted thru the front window and demolished the check stand. When Gordy got to the store he was shocked to see the broken front window. The crew informed him what had happened. The night stocker with the bike thought he would be late for work and sped to the store. He lost control of his bike and lucky he was unhurt from the fall. As the crew was in the store that night, they did not call for repairs to avoid overtime costs for the repairs. I don't know if there was race re-match afterwards or at a safer location. Rest in Peace. - Posted by: Colin Dederick (fellow Safeway worker) on: Apr 17, 2021
