October 2, 1945 – January 14, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gordon Robert Eric Osborne on January 14th 2021 after a long battle with cancer. Gordon was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, on October 2nd, 1945 where he very much enjoyed the outdoor rinks and playing hockey with his cousins.
The family moved to Vancouver in 1955. Through the years Gordon worked in sales and as a Longshoreman for over 30 years. It was here he met his best friends Gibb (Lorretta) Murray and Paul (Carrie) Levesque. Gordon retired to beautiful Sunnybrae in the Shuswap where he spent his final years.
Gordon was predeceased by his mother, Agnes (Fred) Franson, father Eric (Betty) Osborne, and his long time partner Renee Davies.
He leaves behind his children, Shelly and Sheryl, sisters Beverly (Phil) Baumgarten, Dawn (Frank) Kaminski, Deborah (Jack) Lorenzen and Sandra (Rick) Frey and his brothers Gary (Michele) Osborne and Bruce (Tani) Osborne, as well as 3 grandchildren, 47 nieces and nephews and his beloved dog Rocky, ‘THE ROCK’.
The family would like to thank Dr. Sawatzki-Martens, the Palliative Care Nurses of Salmon Arm and the staff at Bastion Place for their concern, compassion and care as well as Gwenn, Michele, Heather, Elisha, and Beau who cared for Gordon during his final days and for the kindness and support given by his cousins Ron (Tina) Coleman and Jimmy (Elaine) Logan. May he rest in peace.
