Gordon Arthur Young

September 28, 1918 ~ May 16, 2019 (age 100)

YOUNG, Gordon

It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Young announces his passing on May 16th, 2019 at the Westlock Healthcare Centre.  After an incredible 100 years on this earth, Gordon will be joining his friends and loved ones in heaven.

He is survived by his daughters Jennifer (Tom) of Nordegg and Karen of Edmonton.  He is also survived by his five grandchildren Kristine (Raymond), Geraldine (Daryl), Clinton (Stephanie), Joshua, and Tessa; his eight great-grandchildren Amber, Justin, Janelle, Brandi, Cameron, Kelsey, Madison, and Victoria; as well as two great-great-grandchildren, Derek and Kolby.  Predeceased by his special companion Grace Roy, beloved wife Shirley, his wonderful daughter Diane, and cherished son David.

Gordon was born on September 28th, 1918 in England.  At a very early age his family moved to Canada, settling in the town of Dapp, where his father started farming; leading Gordon to take over and grow a living.  A Second World War veteran, Gordon served in the Royal Air Force, and has been a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 97 in Westlock for over 70 years.

Gordon loved playing cards, camping, and spending time with friends.  He will be deeply missed by everyone that knew and loved him.  The family would like to send a special thank you to everyone who cared for Gordon at the Westlock Healthcare Centre, Pembina Lodge, and Smithfield Lodge.

As per Gordon’s wishes, there will be no funeral service at this time.
