Meger, Gordon John

Gordon passed away on May 29, 2009 at home after a lengthy and courageous battle with lung cancer at the age of 76 years. Gordon was born in Biggar, Saskatchewan in 1933, and spent his childhood on the family farm near Selkirk, Manitoba. In his youth, he pursued a professional hockey career before returning to Manitoba to complete his education. In 1958, he became a Chartered Accountant. He spent his early career with Sill Streuber Fiske in Winnipeg and relocated to Calgary in 1971. In Calgary, he continued his career as a sole practitioner, where he loved to help his clients and built many valuable relationships. Gordon celebrated his fiftieth year as a CA in 2008. When he watched his children Gordon and Ingrid also become Chartered Accountants it only increased his pride in the profession. In 1974, he married Alice and the couple moved to their home in Lakeview Village. He loved to walk in North Glenmore Park, collecting golf balls along the fence of Earl Grey. Golfing was one of his passions, along with his red golf shirts. He was a member of Canyon Meadows Golf Club for thirty-five years, a place he loved to spend time with many great friends he made over the years. He spent magnificent summer vacations in Kelowna, where he loved the hot sunny weather, the beauty of the lake and of course, the many golf opportunities there. Since retiring (which often meant he only went to the office for a few hours a day instead of all day), he spent several winters in Hawaii with Alice. He cherished their morning walks by the ocean, coffee on the lanai and watching the sunset in Honolulu. He loved to stop into Duke’s on Waikiki Beach and taking Alice to the Halekulani Orchid Room for a special dinner. Gordon leaves behind with loving memories wife Alice; daughters Ingrid and Holly (Raqib); sons Keith and Gordon (Shelley); grandson Ian; brothers Edward (Nancy), Ernie (Pat), Paul, Walter (Phyllis) and Elmer (Lorraine); as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers William and Werner; parents Eda and Albert; as well as sisters-in-law Betty and Nel. A memorial service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Saturday, June 6, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. Reception to follow at Canyon Meadows Golf Club (12501 – 14th Street SW). Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. The family wishes to give a special thanks to the team that took such wonderful care of Gordon in the final stages of his cancer: Dr. Gwyn Bebb, Nishma, Debbie, Carol and Hinock (“Nick”); along with special friends that supported all of us so much: Dan, Ralph, Marv, Al and Eileen; as well as brother Ed and his wife Nancy. In living memory of Gordon Meger, 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.
