HILL,

Gordon Hossick

Gordon had a humble

beginning on a family farm in Greenshields, Alta. Forced by circumstances of the times, like so many

others, he left home to seek

employment in the mines of northern Ontario. There began two of his life long passions: hard working and mining exploration. During WWII Gordon served in the Navy. He then began work as a professional driver

in Vancouver. This led to his career with Greyhound which brought him to Cache Creek in 1956. Gordon held a black belt in Judo. He loved the wilderness, was

fascinated by the far north, hunted at every

opportunity, was a master at water-skiing and began skidooing before most people knew what a snowmobile looked like. Upon retiring from Greyhound Gordon obtained his private pilot’s licence, and progressed from fixed wing wheel planes to float planes and

finally helicopters. Gordon’s fascination with mining and dedication to investments allowed him to achieve

financial independence. With no formal training he was thrilled to have joined the “millionaires club” three times during his life. Gordon was above all a private man with very high standards. He quietly touched more lives than he ever realized and will be missed by his friends and several surviving family members.
