February 22, 1929 - October 9, 2022

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gordon Wolansky on October 9, 2022.
Gord was a loving husband to his wife Antonia (Toni) until her passing in February 2013. He took great pride in being a husband, father, grandpa and great-grandpa and will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Left to cherish his memory are his three children; Russell (Wendy), Kim (Brian), Karen and also Ron, and his precious grandchildren, Cortney (Mitch), Adrien and Evan. Dad was thrilled to become a great-grandpa (Gigi) to sweet little Jordyn and always looked forward to speaking to her on the phone or seeing her on FaceTime. Also left to mourn are his two sisters, Marlene and Claudia, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Gord was predeceased by his parents, Michael and Beatrice Wolanski. He had a very close bond to his siblings and was devastated when he lost his brothers, Leonard (Shirley) in 2018, and Wayne (Donna) in 2022.
The family would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to his caregivers at Maples Personal Care Home for their exceptional care, and although he kept them on their toes they were like his second family. Also, we would like to thank Seven Oaks Hospital for all their efforts and support offered in the short time he was there.
As per Gord's wishes, cremation has taken place, and no formal services.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Hemophilia Society of Manitoba.

Dad, we will love you forever. We will miss your voice and your smiles and most of all we will miss the visits with you in person and over the phone. You have taken a piece of our hearts away with you and that void will never be filled. We love you Dad, please rest peacefully and take good care of Mom xo

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • It was a pleasure to have met Gord. When I was driving the Amber Meadow bus he was a regular passenger and I was the chauffeur. We always had a pleasant conversation and am so sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to Karen and family. - Posted by: Doug Belcher (Neighbour) on: Nov 27, 2022

  • I met Gord and Toni about 17 years ago and they were such a cute and dynamic couple. They would always great me with a smile and were always wonderful hosts. Gord could see the beauty in the simple things in life, as we all should. He would look out the patio doors and enjoy nature and wildlife. He always had a story or two for me, and was an easy person to speak with and get to know. I always felt that you get what you see with Gord: he was himself and a very genuine person. I'll miss him, and offer my condolences to his family and friends. - Posted by: Martin Cloutier (Friend) on: Oct 19, 2022
