THOMPSON, Gordon 1928 – 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon. Gordon died with peace and grace on February 6th, in his sleep at his home in Maple Ridge. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Hazel, his six children, Cathy, Gail, Moira, Tom, Susan and Patsy, eight grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. He worked for 25 years for Fleck Bros. in Vancouver and retired to open a small business in Maple Ridge to assist people in the area with their water needs. He is known by hundreds of people who needed help and he gave it with wit, honesty and kindness. A life-long, struggling Buddhist, Gordon lived and died with his simple axioms of life’s beauty and wonder. As per his request, only family and close friends will gather for a remembrance. Gordon leaves us rich in memories and we are all better for having known him.
Rest in peace Gordon, we will miss you terribly.
