Feb 20, 1955 - Feb 23, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Gordon.
Gordon passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones at his beautiful home on Mable Lake Road, Enderby, BC. He is survived by his loving wife Arlene, his children Jeremy, Lisa (Jib), stepchildren Collin (Tiffany), Darryl and Dustin (Amanda). His siblings Tony, Edward, Randy, Debra (David), and Colleen. His 14 grandchildren, numerous cousins, aunts and uncles. He is predeceased by his mother Angela Scott, father Brian Scott, brother Gary and sister Marjorie Scott.
Gordon was born in Quesnel, BC and lived throughout the province as he was an active longtime member of the large logging community. Gordon was known for working hard and playing harder.
There is so much good to say about Gordon, he was truly one of the good guys with a generosity that knew no boundaries, even with a stranger he gave from his heart and expected nothing in return. Gordon was gifted with an enthusiasm and passion for life that few possess. He was a beautiful dreamer and those that were fortunate enough to know him felt truly blessed. He enhanced the lives of everyone with his quick wit, positive attitude and ready smile. He stood strong in his belief in God. Gordon had a love of golfing, spending countless hours perfecting his swing, he also loved boating, enjoying many hours on the water pulling those smiling faces behind him. Children of all ages were drawn to Gordon like the Pied Piper, he loved imparting his wisdom and took the time to listen. Gordon also had a love for all animals and lately bird watching had become his personal pleasure. Gordons compassion and enthusiasm for life and helping others is what has and will impact those many lives he has touched forever.
HE WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS
The family, with great appreciation, wishes to acknowledge all the love and support from friends and neighbors.
