March 1959-January 2021 ~ It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon John Hinksman. Gord was born and raised in Nanaimo and always carried a great sense of pride for his city, anyone who knew Gord, knew he had endless stories to tell about Nanaimo’s history.
Gord spent many happy days camping, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors all over the island. When Gordo wasn’t running the Edger at Western Forest Products, he could be found watching many local sports games cheering and spreading his contagious laugh.
Gord leaves behind his two daughters, Stephanie (Manolis), Robyn and granddaughter Barcelona, whom he absolutely adored. plus a large family and many friends.
A celebration of his life will be held when all his family and friends can gather safely.
