Lawrence Parker GORDON

April 12, 1947 – June 23, 2008

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of our beloved Larry on June 23, 2008. Larry’s charm, compassion, generosity and enthusiasm touched the lives of many friends and family. Larry loved his wife Janet and was an incredible father and grandfather. Larry lived his life in Prince Rupert for 60 years. Throughout his life Larry was a great athlete who excelled at basketball, baseball, curling & especially golf, which he pursued with a passion for most of his life.

Larry is survived by his wife, Janet, son Jason and his wife Jeanne, daughter Stephanie and her husband Chris, brother Byron, sister Tanis, grandchildren Lucy, Jack, Jane and Alexa and a large extended family of in-laws, nieces and nephews. Larry felt his life was so enriched by a wonderful group of loyal and cherished friends.

Larry’s great spirit has inspired his children and we see his joy and zest for life reflected in the smiles of his grandchildren who will miss him dearly. Even though it was far too short, we are grateful for the time we had.

A celebration of Larry’s amazing life was held on June 29 at the Prince Rupert Golf Course.
