March 29, 1938 – April 15, 2021

Many moons ago, a little girl sat looking at the stars with her Grandpa. He taught her a rhyme:

Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.

And she wished for a purple balloon. The next morning a purple balloon appeared in her room, because her Grandpa wanted to make sure that her first wish upon a star came true.
The night before you died, your granddaughter went out, looked at the stars, and was comforted by the thought that the same sky was blanketing you. The next night when she went out, she said the sky felt lonely without you under it...And then she did what you taught her to do as a child - She wished upon a star. And she wished that she will never forget the sound of your voice.
We all share that wish.

Gordon Muth was a simple, unassuming guy with a quick smile and an ability to listen without judgement or bias. Blessed to be part of many families - the one he was born to, the one he spent hours amidst, and the one he married in to, he leaves a legacy of love for his family and friends, too numerous to possibly list. He will be especially remembered by his wife of almost 60 years, Beverley, his daughter Shelley, son Dwayne (Merv), and his grandchildren, Kianah and Kaeler of whom he was always so proud.
Predeceased by many folks that he held dear to his heart, his Spirit rejoices at being with them again, while we can only celebrate his memory and his touch upon us in life.
In keeping with his belief that people matter, the family invites you to remember with them at a Celebration of Life on September 25, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. at Epiphany Lutheran Church (200 Dalhousie Drive).
If you are unable to attend to share stories and memories, consider leaving your thoughts on the condolence page at:

The sky does in fact feel lonelier without you under it. But if instead, we look into the heart, we hear your voice again.
Husband/Dad/Grandpa -
You are forever in our hearts.
