Mr. Gordon Leslie Cook

April 2, 1921September 17, 2013

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Father Gordon at the age of 92. Gordon was predeceased by his beloved wife Doreen in 2002. Gordon will be lovingly remembered by his children Bob (Susan), Debbie, Ron (Deb) and Janice; grandsons Jeff and Tony and many nieces, nephews and long-time friends. As a WWII veteran, he served in Europe with the Seaforth Highlanders. Prior to his military service and upon returning, he worked for MacMillan Bloedel Canadian White Pine Division. Retirement allowed Gordon and Doreen the opportunity to go cruising and spend more time with family. At the age of 92, Gordie could still be seen pushing his walker on the PoCo trail. Gordon's favourite saying was "See that smile on your face, that puts a smile on my face". We will always remember your smile, Dad. There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the charity of your choice.

We just heard that Gordon passed away from one of his friends at the Kent Residence. We knew he had been ill and were wondering how he was, sorry to hear of his passing. We walk every day in Gates Park and always enjoyed our chats with him, he truly was a very nice man. We will think of him whenever we pass the spot where he would sit and enjoy the sunshine, greeting all who passed with a smile and a bit of pleasant conversation. Condolences to all the family.

Sad to hear about your Dad. Gordie was lovely person and a wonderful neighbour. Our kids used to love dashing across the lane to visit. We know he'll be missed by all who knew him.

I have fond memories of Uncle Gordie up at Roberts Creek. He was such a nice man. So sorry for your loss.

I've worked with Gordie at CWP for many years. Always a friendly man and I always marveled at his ability with numbers. RIP Gordie, I guess you'll be tallying lumber up in heaven.

Gordie was a genuinely nice man - a real gentleman who always showed an interest in what a person had to say. Always so pleasant. The world was a better place having Gordie in it.

We just saw the obituary in the Weekend Sun. I was reminded of the last time we got together when he was in Kamloops. Lively conversation, laughter then a hockey game! Gordon was a kind soul and he was immensely proud of his kids. You are 'the living legacy to the leader of the band'. Better days ahead.

I didn't know your dad personally but I used to walk my dog at Gates Park every weekday morning and always looked forward to seeing your dad. We would have a short conversation, he would pet my dog then he was on his way. He had a happy "good morning" for everyone he saw. Will miss his friendly smile. Lovely man.
