We the family of Gordon Russell Wilson, of Boundary Creek, are devastated to announce the accidental loss of our rock on Thursday, June 18, 2020, near Nackawic.
Gordon is survived by the love of his life Allison, it just was not long enough. Father Jack Wilson (late Susan), only sister Diane Wilson, and more of a Dad then an Uncle to his 3 nieces, Cecilia, Susan and Kayla. Mother-in-law Rose MacLeod, step-sister Kim Williams (Doug), step-brother Kenneth George, brother-in-law, Albert "Nipper" Steele (Robin), sister-in-law Bev Steele (late Wally), and many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and his friends on Steeves Mountain.
Predeceased by his mother Susan, his step-mother Shirley and his aunt Beverly.
Gordon had been a long haul trucker for over 20 years, working for many trucking companies, his last position with Loblaw’s. However, his main joy in life was family. He took on the role of a leader with no hesitation. Whether helping his father in Anagance, his sister, or his in-laws, he never wavered. He loved to laugh, make you laugh, with a twinkle in his eye and that little boy grin he could get away with it, time and time again.
He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, working in the yard, and of course his Grizzly. He also loved games of all sorts, board games, card games (especially 200’s and Texas Hold Em), and entertained his nieces with many games of hide and seek. He loved to drive, whether in a big rig or in his cherished F150, usually with his Camo hat on. Camo crocs in the house were his slippers of choice. He loved to cook, especially for a crowd, and did the majority of cooking for his wedding to Allison, the happiest day of his life.
*In honouring the wishes of Gordon R Wilson there will be no formal funeral, however, there is visitation with the family on Saturday, July 25, 2020 from 10 am - 12:30 pm at the Magnetic Hill Lions Club, 3348 Route 126, Lutes Mountain, NB E1G 2X4.
A life well lived is worth remembering. Gordon was a husband, son, brother and uncle first and foremost. Family meant everything to him. If you were his friend, you were lucky as there was nothing he would not do to help those he held in his heart. He was a kind, hardworking, loveable soul, who loved to laugh and make others laugh.
