Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Thinking of Sheila and family during this difficult time. I know Gordon from the Reh-fit Centre in Winnipeg. He attended the gym on a regular basis and came to many of my group fitness classes. He always worked hard and was a pleasure to visit with at the centre. He will be missed! - Posted by: Shauna Watt (friend) on: Oct 18, 2021
I last spoke with Gordon a few years back on a trip to Winnipeg when I walked down Arden Avenue and ran into him while he was outside. My condolences to the family. Michael - Posted by: Michael Gros (Arden Avenue and the LDS Church) on: Oct 16, 2021
Deeply saddened at his passing. Mr Mears was far more than just my coach, he was my friend and mentor. Had it not been for Kevin convincing my to try soccer, the bond may never have happened. The life experiences we shared together and all the fond memories that were created. To Kevin and the entire family, my deepest condolences. - Posted by: RICK MCKILLOP (Friend ) on: Oct 16, 2021
My condolences to the family. My late husband and I would visit and catch up with family news when we happened to see each other in Superstore. It was a treat to visit with him and Sheila. - Posted by: Jane Vogt (friendd) on: Oct 16, 2021
