Greetings to all friends, colleagues and acquaintances of Gordon Poppy
June 14, 1928 – July 17, 2020
As a family, we are contacting you to let you know that our wonderful father Gordon passed away peacefully on July the 17th of this year. His final days were at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, surrounded by his family. Due to the circumstances resulting from the global pandemic, our final days with Dad, and the days immediately following his passing, presented some unique challenges. While arranging for Dad’s funeral and Celebration of Life, we found ourselves very much limited in respect to including the multitude of people who were an important part of Dad’s life.
We had a small family graveside ceremony on Thursday, July 30th where we celebrated Dad’s remarkable life and gave thanks to our Lord for allowing us to experience his legacy of love, faith, joy, creativity, gratitude and generosity.
We have created a website which contains a few words of reflection from family, photos taken at the graveside memorial, favorite pictures of Gordon and his artwork, and a link to the Vancouver Sun obituary where you can also have an opportunity to share any thoughts or memories of our amazing father.
Thank you, Owen, Ellen and families
