James Albert Gordon Obituary 1987

     Family and friends were saddened to learn of the passing of James Albert Gordon at his late residence on Saturday, January 17, 1987.
     Born at Huntley, PEI as son of the late John Owen and Grace (Riley) Gordon, James lived on the old homestead in Alma where he farmed for a number of years.
     He was a veteran of World War II.  In 1956, he and his wife moved to Summerside where he worked as a carpenter until his retirement.  After the death of his wife he resided with his daughter, Lois.
     He was respected and loved by old and young alike, mild-mannered and kind, a wonderful father and grand-father who will be greatly missed by all.
     Left to cherish his memory are his daughters, June (Mrs. Hanson Oliver), St. Eleanors; Lois (Mrs. Merle Skerry), Summerside; Ruby (Mrs. Albert Smith), Northeast Harbour, NS.; Mrs. Shirley Sanders, Willowdale, Ontario; 16 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; also four sisters, Hazel, (Mrs. Breton Ramsay), Huntley; Jean (Mrs. Harrison Thompson), Moncton, NB; Lilla, (Mrs. Wilfred Matthews), Moncton, NB; Dorothy (Mrs. Marshall Rayner), Summerside and a number of nieces and nephews. 
     The largely attended funeral was held from Moase Funeral Home where service was conducted by Rev. Hubert Bartlett and Rev. Roy Austin.  The organist was Mrs. Areta Burke.  Members of the Royal Canadian Legion attended in a body and formed an Honor Guard.  Pallbearers were Ronald Thompson, Mike Perry, Ray MacKinnon, Kenneth Gordon, Jack Clark and Norman Warren.  Flowerbearers were Kenny Gordon, Dean Smith, Blaine Skerry, Fenton Yeo, Barry Yeo and Ralph Yeo.
