Celebration of Life: Saturday, August 30, 2014, 3:00 p.m., family residence
We regret the passing of Gordon Thomas Swire on July 24, 2014 at the age of 69.
Gord, as he was known by family and friends, was born in New Westminster.
He was predeceased by his father Henry and mother Herta, step dad Morris Jopling and older brother Brian Swire. He is survived by his other half Pam, daughter Alexandra, grandson Shane, son Brandan (Tracy), granddaughter Sophia and also his son Michael (Tamara) and granddaughter Gigi, grandchildren Victoria and Kai as well as his two favorite girls, Roxy and Tia.
Gord worked for several years at Esco in Port Coquitlam, and was also an avid fisherman, skeet and trap shooter, golfer, and kayaker and also greatly enjoyed woodworking in the winter but his greatest joy was riding his “Harley”.
The family would like to thank the medical care staff at 3 West and the Intensive Care Unit of Vernon Jubilee Hospital and the Intensive Care Unit A, at Kelowna General Hospital as well as all the doctors and nurses.
There will be a Celebration of Life on August 30, 2014 at 3 pm, at the family home.
