CARSON, Gordon Harold
June 13, 1940 – January 19, 2016
Surrounded by his family Gordon, passed into the care of our Heavenly Father on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at the age of 75 years.
Gordon is survived by his loving wife Patricia; children Dan (Darlene), Corey (Mark) Rourke, Jordan (Chelsea), Dawn (Tony) Mucciarone, David (Kiki) Price, Randy (and his plus 1 Sherry) Price; grandchildren: Gordon (Katrina) Carson, Becky Carson, Brandon Mucciarone, Kenzie Mucciarone, Nicholas Lange, Erik Lange, and Nova Carson. He was predeceased by his parents George Walker Carson and Joan Rebecca (Keith) Light, as well as infant brothers David and Eric.
Gord was born and raised in Ottawa and proudly served his country in the R.C.A.F. for 21 years at bases across Canada and 3 Wing in Germany. After retiring from the R.C.A.F., he went into careers in film projection, home construction, building inspection, and school bus driving. After retiring from these careers he went on to drive a taxi which fulfilled his great desire to drive and talk. He loved to play sports in his early years and dabbled in coaching where his children were involved. He was also bitten by the golf bug later in life.
Gord`s Anglican faith was very important to him as he served as a Crucifer and Alter Server as he grew up and served as a member of the building committee for the hall and as a Communion Assistant and reader at St. Matthias Anglican Church in Edmonton.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at 2:00 pm at St. Matthias Anglican Church, 6210-88 Street, Edmonton, AB, with Father David Tiessen and Father Paul Bachmann officiating. Following the service please join the family for a time of fellowship in the St. Matthias reception hall.
Memorial donations in Gord`s memory may be made to St. Matthias Church or Leduc Community Hospital through the “Black Gold Foundation“.
Our sincere thanks to Dr. Simard and the staff of the Leduc Hospital Special Care Unit for their outstanding care and compassion.
