Gordon lived most of his life at Fort Steele, the place he loved dearly. He went to the little red school house and was there for the start of the Historic Park in the early 60’s! He had many job’s through his career, his last being curator of the Museum at the Park!

He is survived by his cousin Minnie Erickson, special friends Gary Hay, Maureen Martine & Family, Rob Salmon & Family and several nieces & nephews!

At Gordon’s request there will be no funeral service, but a celebration of life will be held at a later date!

A special thanks to the Doctor’s, nurse’s & staff on the 2nd floor for the excellent care, you want above and beyond! A very special thank you to Patty for being there when he needed someone! Your Awesome!
