Gordon Conn

December 4, 1948 - October 13, 2010


On Tuesday, October 12, 2010, Gordon Conn passed away at the hospital in Oliver at the age of 61, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was predeceased by his father, Howard, his mother, Mabel, and his nephew, David. He is survived by his loving wife Pamela; step-daughters Natalie (Colin) and Lisa (Jeffrey); granddaughters Ashley, Mackenzie, Danica, and Darby; brothers Charles (Erika) and Arthur (Nancy); nieces and nephews Grad, Morgan, Meredyth, Emily, Heather and Julia. Gordon was born in Toronto and graduated with honours from Queens University in 1972 with a Commerce degree. He was an excellent athlete, particularly in football, baseball and hockey. Gordon had the opportunity to do some extensive travelling throughout his life and especially enjoyed his annual trip to Mexico. After establishing a successful business in Calgary, Gord and Pam retired to Osoyoos, BC where he was able to grow his beautiful flowers which he was so proud of. Family and friends celebrated his life on Saturday, October 16th at the Osoyoos Baptist Church. Donations are gratefully accepted for The Canadian Cancer Society or 1835 Recovery House in Calgary.

Relation: Neighbour / Friend

Regretably, we knew Gordon for far too short a period of time. In the two years since he has become our neighbour, we were totally amazed at his strength and determination to live his life to it’s fullest regardless of any sickness or disabilities he might encounter. He really demonstrated the power of the human spirit each and every day in his home, his garden and his interactions with family, friends and loved ones. It is that spirit we will miss the most along with his smile, his thumbs up when he could no longer speak, and the strength in that final hand shake that said “bring it on”! Rest in Peace Gordon, your Spirit has taken wings with the Angels!

From: Laurie, Doug, Chelsea, Carly and Rebecca Simpson
Relation: Sister & Brother In-Law & Nieces

Gord was a wonderful husband, step-father, grandfather, brother in-law and uncle. He had an inner strength and spirit that was admired by all who knew him. You will be deeply missed, Gord. Our deepest condolences to Pam and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Much love from The Simpson family.
