October 3, 1953 – December 22, 2021
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that the family of David Brian Gordon announces his passing on December 22, 2021, in the Pilgrims Hospice in Edmonton, Alberta, at the age of 68.
David was born on October 3, 1953, in Kimberley, B.C. Throughout Dave’s life, the traits that stood out to most of his friends and co-workers were his sense of humor and quick wit. Dave was always ready to share a joke or a story from the past and made people feel welcome and comfortable. Dave loved to play his guitar, fishing, doing woodworking and watch a western movie in his spare time.
Dave’s greatest joys were the days spent in the sunshine in Arizona with his wife, Bev. Dave and Bev made many close friends at the Palmas Del Sol East Park in Apache Junction. They were usually the first ones on the dance floor and many times, the last. They enjoyed golfing, playing cards, and socializing. Some of the best times throughout their lives together were the memories that were made while traveling to Venice, Rome, Florence, Greece, Croatia, Britain, North Sea cruise and excursions, Branson, Missouri, New York, Hawaii, Las Vegas and so many more.
Family was first and foremost in Dave’s priorities as he supported their many competitions and events, loved playing cards and games with them, and also loved to tease them. Dave will be greatly missed by many friends and family members.
Dave will be especially missed by his wife, Bev, his sons, Michael Gordon (Rosie), Daryn Gordon (Katia and their son, James), step-daughter, Cindy Scantland (Travis), step-son Robert Boman (Chantelle), 8 grand-children and 3 great-grand-children, his mother, Dorothy Valin, sister, Debra Muir (Bill), and brother, Kevin Valin (Lorie), and his special Aunt LC. David was pre-deceased by his father (Francis Gordon), step-father (Scotty Valin), and sister, Dianna MacKay.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date and will be posted. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Pilgrims Hospice Society in Edmonton, AB, in honor of David Gordon.
