Gordon Alvin Brewster

February 28, 1943 ~ December 5, 2020 (age 77)


With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Gordon Alvin Brewster on December 5, 2020 at the age of 77, at home.

Gordon leaves behind a tight knit family, his loving wife Edna of 56 years, children: Donna, Lori, Sheri (Dave) and Dwayne;  7 grandchildren: Shandi, Courtney, Dustin, Ashley, Kellie, Kiera and Kyla; 8 great-grandchildren: Jase, Logan, Ryder, Kolby, Nathan, Nikita, Caiden and Benson.  Also surviving are his siblings: Alfreda (Terry), Betty (Gordon) and Aubrey (Judy) as well a large extended family of nieces, nephews, and cousins. Gordon was predeceased by his parents Kenneth and Edith, his brother Don, his son Dale, and his grandson Noah.

Gordon was born on February 28, 1943 in Wadena, Saskatchewan.  In 1961, he left the family farm and set out to be a miner at the nickel mine INCO in Thompson.  It was there he met the love of his life Edna and they married in 1964.  After 30 years at the mine and raising their family, Gordon looked to his next adventure and bought their retirement home a hobby farm near Erickson.  A farm boy through and through Gordon loved both animals and the outdoors.  It was not uncommon to find Gordon nursing wounded wildlife, taking in a stray or doting on his precious Pomeranian.  He also trained his own team of horses and built a covered wagon for him and his family to go out on trail rides which supported community charities.  Gordon made room for everyone whether it be at the dinner table, on the wagon or around a campfire, you were always welcome. 

Grandkids were Gordons joy, and he took great pride in teaching and sharing his hobbies whether it be learning to ride a horse, tending to farm chores, learning to drive a tractor, lawn mower, ski-doo, dune buggy or playing cards, he always made time for family. 

Fun loving, kind and hardworking man, Gordon drove semi right into his final days, not considering work and enjoying himself while helping others with his beloved Pomeranian in the passenger seat. 

Cremation will take place.  Family was everything to Gordon and he would want them there to gather at a celebration of life when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, and we can all gather freely.

If friends so desire donations can be made to Canadian Cancer Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Ride for Life.
