HALLIDAY, Gordon Edward It is with great sadness we announce that on March 28th, 2014, Gordon Edward Halliday passed away at the Campbell River Hospital, at the age of 79. He was the youngest son of the late Reg and Frances Halliday of Kingcome Inlet. Predeceased by his sisters Bea and Elizabeth and his brothers, Jim and Alan and granddaughter Tiffany. Gordon was born in Alert Bay, one of the third generation of Hallidays raised on the family farm in Kingcome Inlet. As a young boy, Gordon developed a love for trapping, fishing, hunting and the outdoor life of the coast, which he carried with him throughout his life. As a young man he worked at hand logging, running freight, commercial fishing, watching camp and logging in numerous locations up and down the coast. As his children reached school age a move was made to Cortez Island where he helped build a marina, later moving to Campbell River where he worked for the Department of Highways until retiring. He continued his love of the outdoors after retiring, travelling to Alberta every year to hunt with his son. He also was a member of a bowling league for many years as well as golfing. He was well known for his dry sense of humour, habit of giving nicknames to all those closest to him and stories of 'the old days'! Gordon is survived by his children Ernie and Jean (Wayne), grandchildren Brittany, Sarah, Stephanie, Brianne, Noel, Madison, and great-grandson Declan. Also survived by his sister Mary and many nieces, nephews and cousins. A celebration of Life will be held at the Salvation Army Ocean Crest Church, 291 Mclean Street in Campbell River, Saturday, April 12 at 11:00am. Read Obituary
