FIELD, Gordon Charles

Gordon was born August 22, 1933 in Sioux Lookout, Ontario. It is with GREAT SADNESS that we announce his passing April 16, 2011 in Kelowna, B.C. Gordon is survived by his loving wife of 55 years Mary Ann Elizabeth Field (nee Nystrom), his six children and their spouses: Gordon, Michael (Wendy), Kerry (Rosemary), Scott (Nina), Laurene (Dave) and Ljiljana. Ten Grandchildren: Kaitlin, Colby, Tyler (Kasey), Nicholas, Kenzie, Sean, Cassandra, Bryce, Carson and Spencer. 1 Great grandson: Connor. Gordon is also survived by his siblings: Evelyn (Bob), Ron (Betty) Lloyd (Gloria), Marlene (John) and Vivian. Predeceased by his parents Evelyn and Walter Field and brother Wally Field. Gordon was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who loved to kid around with all who knew him. His passion and dedication to provide a great life for his wife and children were second to none! Dad could always be found reading his morning Province newspaper while having a good cup of coffee. He enjoyed watching his Canucks (maybe this year Dad!) and also enjoyed playing golf. In accordance with Dad’s wishes there will be no service. Donations to the Cancer Society or Central Okanagan Hospice House in Gordon’s memory are gratefully accepted.

God looked around his garden

and found an empty place

He then looked down upon this earth

and saw your tired face

He put his arms around you

and lifted you to rest

God’s garden must be beautiful

He always takes the best

He knew that you were suffering

He knew you were in pain

He knew that you would never

get well on earth again

He saw that the road was getting rough

and the hills are hard to climb

So he closed your weary eyelids

and whispered, “Peace be thine”

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn’t go alone

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home
