Gordon Jack BOTHAM

Sept. 10, 1925 - Oct. 24, 2012 Gordy was born in Vancouver B.C. to Emma and Percy Botham. During WW II he joined the Navy and served on the HMCS Uganda - we proudly thank him. Upon his return from service he worked as a Longshoreman on the local waterfront until his retirement. He had a love for fishing, golf, camping, travel, family gatherings and a morning game of "dirty dozen" with the love of his life, Mary.

Good-bye to a loving husband (best friend and soul mate) of 62 years, dad, grandfather, brother, father-in-law, uncle and an old and a new friend to many. We will miss you with all our hearts. But with many happy and funny memories, your warmth and unconditional love will always be with us and never be forgotten.

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

If I should die before I wake

I pray the Lord my soul to take


No service by request.
