Gordon was born and raised in Vernon B.C, as a young man he worked for Bullman’s Cannery. Later he became the 1st employee to be hired on at Consumer’s Glass in Lavington, lovingly earning the nickname 001 which he carried for 35yrs.
Upon retirement he and his wife Gloria moved to Grand Forks BC where he resided until his passing.
Gordon is survived by his wife Gloria of 49yrs, 4 sons Bryan (Lianna) Jones of Falkland BC, Kevin (Allie) Holtz of Red Deer AB, Derek Holtz of Vernon BC, Collin (Kim Sveinson) Holtz of Vernon BC, 2 sisters Joyce (Irwin) Frank of Vernon BC, Evelyn Bentham of Victoria BC, 10 Grandchildren, and 4 Great Grandchildren.
The many friends that he met along the way were greatly valued by him. He will be sadly missed and always remembered for being exactly who he was. Rest in Peace 001
