McCORMICK – Gordon Winston

July 13, 1941 – March 15, 2011

With his beloved wife Jackie and daughter Angela at his side, Gordie peacefully passed away on March 15, 2011 at the age of 69 years.

Our hearts are broken. We would like to thank everyone for all the joy, laughter, and pleasure you gave him during his difficult battle with Wegener’s disease.

There will be a private family internment at a later date. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Calgary Humane Society, 4455 – 110th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 2T7, Telephone: (403)205-4455, www.calgaryhumane.ca . Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com .

In living memory of Gordie McCormick, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

Gordie was born in Montreal on July 13, 1941, and was a basic good all around man. Being a hard worker brought him dignity and pride as well as respect from his peers. He was a “Jack” of all trades and was always ready to step up and help others whenever necessary. He put more into this world then he ever took out. Retiring from the city of Calgary in 2004 after thirty one years of service, he enjoyed his daily walks around the neighborhood and spent countless hours making our house a home. Playing his guitars and watching the Montreal Canadiens were also favourites. In 2007 baby Kali came into his life- Oh how she loved her “Papa”, and Oh how he loved her. They spent many memorable times together! In July 2010 Gordie was diagnosed with Wegener’s disease. He fought a brave and courageous battle but in the end lost. May he be remembered for the kind, caring, and compassionate person he was, and may he rest in peace. Knowing his memory will be kept alive by those who loved him. Gordie is survived by his loving wife Jackie and children Danny, Caroline, Natalie, Gordie Jr., Angela and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Alice, Floyd, Shirley, Nelson, and Valerie. Gordie was predeceased by his parents Ivy and Lawrence and siblings; Lawrence, Don, Vince, Laura, and Ella.

    Meeting Gordon in the same hospital room where our son Olaf been very sick, we will never forget the promise Gordon made to look after our son later on, after he would be free from his kidney decease! This showed us what a wonderfully person he was, but It never came to his promise to help our son! Our son did passed away before Gordon could try to help him! There are now together in a better place!

    Having worked with Gordie and for him, it was always a positive experience. He had a unique sense of humor and respected those who worked under him, making Gordie a very popular foreman. Away from work Gordie showed the same respect for others-especially those less fortunate than himself and for the elderly. My heartfelt sympathies go out to his most beloved wife Jackie, and daughter Angela.
