Gordon was born in Clive Alberta to Denzel and Phyllis (Myrtle) Conrad, the eldest of 7 children. At the age of 2 years, he and his parents moved to Hondo Alberta where they started their Homestead. Gordon worked several farming jobs during harvest and seeding seasons. He went to work for the Northern Alberta Railway in Smith then transferred to Edmonton where he met his wife, Helen. They moved to Smith where he worked at the Smith Rail Yard. Later they bought a farm which was near the Family Farm. He worked at the Federated Coop Mill in Smith for several winters while farming all the while. In 1974 they sold the family farm and moved to Slave Lake where he worked for the Town of Slave Lake and became the Town Maintenance Foremen. Gordon was a very active member of the Elks Club, President and Life Member of the Slave Lake Legion. One of Gordon’s greatest passions was to help bring the sport of Floor Curling to many communities across Alberta. He enjoyed the sport immensely until 2021 when he decided it was time to retire his stick.
In 1998 they sold their home and moved to the City of Edmonton where he was very active and a Life Member of North West Edmonton Seniors Society, as well as volunteering for the Kensington Bingo Hall. In March of 2023 Gordon was admitted to the Sturgeon Hospital, and in May was transferred to Eaux Claires Extended Care facility where he succumbed to his illness on September 25, 2023.
There will be a celebration of Life held at 1:00 p.m. on November 4, 2023 at the North West Edmonton Seniors Society, 12963 120 ST, Edmonton, AB T5E 5N8.
Interment will take place with family at a later date at the Hondo Cemetery.
