Gordon George Park was called home by his Lord and Saviour on May 17, 2019.
Gordon was born March 31, 1938 in Yarbo, SK. and attended school in Redpath and Esterhazy. Gordon lived most of his adult life with Carole and their four sons in Langenburg, SK. Gordon worked at the mine until he started his own painting business in 1964. Gordon took great pride in his work and Park Painting operated for approximately 50 years.
Gordon served the Community of Langenburg as a volunteer with the following: Elks, Volunteer Fire Department, Activity Centre Board, and Town Council. He was also involved with minor sports to support his sons’ numerous activities. Gordon was very active in the Anglican Diocese of Qu’Appelle and he lived by Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father”.
To various members of his family he was known as “Sweetie-Pie”, “Dad”, “Grandpa”, “Pa”, “Uncle Gordon”, and “NODROG KRAP” (this was by his sons), and to most of the community he was known as “Friend”.
Gordon was a man who loved God, loved his family, loved people in general, and lived to serve others. Even in his last days when he had no words left, he still showed everyone around he cared through his smile that lit up his whole being.
He leaves behind his beloved wife and best friend of almost 59 years, Carole, as well as sons Randy (Melinda), Rory (Kathy), David (Terrie), and Tim (Vicki). He was a proud grandfather of Kalen, Braeden, Quinn, Hannah, and Tanner. Gordon is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews throughout North America. He is predeceased by his father George and mother Rose as well as his siblings: Muriel (Busch), Margaret (Propp), John and Walter.
