We regret to announce the death on February 24, 2007, of Gordon Leslie Brevik, at the age of 72 years. He passed away peacefully at Hospice House in Vernon, surrounded by his loving family. Gordon was born in Yorkton, Sask., and was a longtime resident of Calgary prior to moving to Vernon five years ago. He was an ardent gardener and “Mr. Fixit” and will be remembered by many neighbours over the years for his willingness to step in and help out. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years, Ruth; son Doug of Abbotsford and daughter Carol (Tony) Roberts of Chilliwack; and grandchildren: Shawn, Kevin, Michael and Jason. He is also survived by sisters: Louise (Bill) VanParys and Joyce (Harvey) Stebner, all of Yorkton; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members. In honouring Gord’s wishes, there will be no public funeral service. Cremation arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home, 542-0155. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Gord may be made to either the Baerg-McMurtry Cancer Clinic at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, 2101 – 32 St., Vernon, V1T 5L2; or Hospice House, 3506 – 27 Ave., Vernon, V1T 1S4.
