Gordon Edward Strohm

We regret to announce the passing of Gordon Edward Strohm on June 16th, 2011 at his home in Armstrong, BC. He was surrounded by his loving family and the animals that meant so much to him. Gordon was predeceased by his first wife, Joyce and four older brothers. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Ruth, brother Ken (Mavis) Strohm, sons Chris (Dianne) Strohm, Dave (Katie) Strohm and daughters, Joanne and Helen, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Gordon was born in Embro, Ontario and grew up in Lajord, Saskatchewan. In 1955, he moved to Armstrong to raise his family and work as a mechanic. His passions were farming, animals and the breeding of miniature horses. Gordon was a founding member of the Armstrong Pony Club and the Valley Miniature Horse Club. He will also be remembered for his involvement in the I.P.E. and parade.

Gordon loved his morning coffee with “the boys”.

A sincere thank-you to the community care workers. You all made it possible for him to have his final days at home.

A celebration of life will be held at Glad Tidings Church in Armstrong on July 2nd, 2011 at 2pm.

Those wishing to honour Gordon’s memory may do so by a donation to the Canadian Wildlife Federation, 350 Michael Cowpland Dr, Kanata, Ont, K2M 2W1 or to the Cancer Society of BC.

Many thanks to family, friends, Dr. Annan and the wonderful community care staff.
