Gordon Alexander Buck

October 18, 1917 - April 18, 2016


Dad passed away peacefully Monday, April 18, 2016 at the Cowichan District Hospital.  Born in Big River, Sask. October 18, 1917.   Lovingly and happily remembered by his family, Joan (the late Dan) Benty and Richard (Katherine), grandchildren Russell, Raymond,  Anthony and Kelly and several great grandchildren.


He and his late wife, Viola, moved to Lake Cowichan in 1947 until 1982 when they moved to Duncan.  He worked for Hillcrest Lumber Co. at Mesachie Lake 1947 to 1968, then BCFP until retirement in 1982.


He always had time for his family and friends no matter what!  Upon retirement, he and Viola spent their time in their motor home visiting family and friends.  Gordon will be remembered by his friends at the Royal Alexander Apartments, Moby Meats Butcher Shop and M & M Meats.  The family would like to thank them for the time given helping Gordon, especially the last few years.


A Graveside Service will be held at Cedar Memorial Gardens, 2347 Cedar Road, Cedar, BC on Monday, May 9, 2016 at 11:00 AM and followed by a ‘Gathering of Family and Friends’ at H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan, BC. This is expected to commence at approximately 12:30 PM.
