Gordon Francis McEwen, known to those close to him as “Gordie,” born on August 5th, 1942 in Halifax, N.S., passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 13, 2017. Gordie was a hard working man who took pride in his work and worked until the day he was hospitalized after suffering a major stroke. When he was not working, Gordie truly enjoyed taking his wife of 18 years, Julie McEwen, camping and fishing at their favourite location “Kelly Lake.” Gordie, an only child, is survived by his wife Julie McEwen, son Finley McEwen, and two daughters Candace McEwen & Muriel (Mim) Leblanc. he also leaves behind four beautiful grandchildren.
The family is respecting Gordie’s wishes to not have a big public event such as a celebration of life or funeral, but instead will hold a private family outing to his favourite place where his life will be honoured.
Please say a few prayers for his family and may he rest in peace!
