Cooper, Gordon Martin

Born August 17, 1928 in Lloydminster, AB, Gordon passed away peacefully at home in Nanaimo on November 24, 2011, with daughters Laurie and Jamie by his side.

Gordon is predeceased by his loving wife of 51 years, Christina, parents Cecil and Kathleen, and sister Freda.

Gordon is survived by his three daughters; Linda, Laurie, Jamie, and two granddaughters, Samantha and Lindsay, who were the light of his life. Gordon is also survived by brother Jim, sister Joan, and several nieces and nephews.

Family was always most important to Gordon, and he always made sure all his girls were taken care of. Gordon was very proud of them all, but he was especially proud of his two granddaughters and their recent educational accomplishments.

By family request, there will be no service at this time. A family celebration of Gordon’s life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank Dr. Cancade for his years of encouragement and patience, all the home support girls who passed through his life, brightening his days, and his neighbours at Mallard Place who offered unconditional caring and assistance.

With deep sadness we say goodbye to you, dad. We miss you so much, will love you forever, and take comfort that you are finally reunited with the love of your life.

Your loving daughters, XXX
