MITCHELL, Gordon Stanley After an extended battle with kidney disease, Gordon passed away peacefully at the Chemainus Health Care Centre, November 16, 2008 at the age of 74. Gordon will be greatly missed by his wife Jan, and their combined families. He was predeceased by his son Larry; parents Jessie and Elsie, brothers Ellis and Fred. Gordon is survived by his daughters Sharon (Harry), Shirley, Gwen and Lori (Rod); sons Patrick (Susan) and Brad (Cheryl); eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, brothers Colin (Bunny), Bob (Rose), sisters-in-law Elsie and Shirley, also numerous nieces and nephews. Gordon was born and raised in Saskatchewan, after receiving an offer from the oilfield industry he moved to Alberta to begin his career which spanned forty-five years. He started as a rig hand and worked his way up to become a drilling engineer. Having worked initially in Western Canada and the United States, he eventually worked in the Arctic and then overseas for many years; in Costa Rica, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America and Europe. During the 1980's he enjoyed being a part owner of several race horses, one of his favorites being Margies Hitter who was declared Horse of the Year during his partnership. When Gordon and Jan retired in 1998 they moved to Chemainus, on Vancouver Island and he became an active member of the Chemainus Legion Branch No. 191, serving as an Executive Board Member and Poppy Chairman. Gordon enjoyed playing golf and was a member of the Island Petroleum Club for many years until he became ill. There will be a family memorial in Alberta at a later date. Gordon requested donations to be made in his name to Chemainus Legion Branch No. 191 or the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Duncan, BC Chapter. Published in the Calgary Herald on 11/26/2008
