It is with great sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Gordon Duncan on Thursday, December 6, 2012.
Born in Vancouver, October 17, 1947, he moved with his young family to the Ashcroft area in 1975 where he remained the rest of his life.
He spent most of his working career in the mining industry including Bethlehem and Highland Valley Copper. He ventured into many enterprises that allowed him to explore his love of computers. While being self employed at Ashcroft Printing and later working at Junction Shell in Cache Creek, he met many wonderful people and made lasting friendships. During his last working days he returned to mining for Pelly Construction.
He dedicated much of his time to the Ashcroft Seventh-day Adventist Church that he loved. He was quick to help anyone who had a problem and did so willingly. He always had an open ear for anybody who wanted to talk.
Gord is resting in the Lord after a short battle with cancer and is survived by Trudy, his loving wife of 40 years, sister Sylvia (Jerry), children Suzi (Art), Gordy (Elaine), and his grandchildren Tyler, Terry and Noah, that he loved and enjoyed every minute he was with them. All these people were the twinkle in his eye.
A celebration of Gord’s life will be held at the Ashcroft Community Hall, Sunday December 16, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ashcroft Branch of the Red Cross and Ashcroft Palliative Care.
