Gordon passed away peacefully on June 21st, 2018 at the Campbell River Hospital- surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife, Marilyn and his three children – Sharon Laird (Scott), David Bowman (Shirley), (Donna), and Garth Bowman (Wendy). He is dearly missed by his grandchildren Josiah Sean, Zoe (Justin), Allison (Vasco), and Laura (Ashkan), as well as his four great grandchildren- Quinn, Rylee, Nathan, and Liam.
Gordon was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba – and met the love of his life – Marilyn – at the age of fifteen! They married at a young age, and he became a great family provider….. initially working for Proctor and Gamble, followed by Union Carbide, and Praxair. Following his retirement in 1994, Gordon and Marilyn moved to Campbell River, BC to be close to their children and grandchildren. During Gordon’s life he was passionate about volunteering in his community. He served on the City of Campbell River’s Board of Variance from 2006 to 2015. He was also involved with Citizens on Patrol, Masons and Shriners (primarily focusing on fundraising for children in hospital).
Gordon’s family is deeply appreciative of the exceptional personal care and support provided by the doctors and nursing staff on 3D at the Campbell River Hospital.
Gordon was an amazing husband, and a loving and supportive father and grandfather. He is greatly missed by his family and friends!
