SNOW, Gordon Warrick
99 Kippens Road, Kippens,
Newfoundland
October 2, 1930 - November 4, 2006
76 years

Born in Deer Lake, Newfoundland on October 2, 1930 to Gordon E. and Minnie Snow, Gordon Warrick Snow grew up enjoying the woods and waterways of the west coast. Always an avid angler and hunter, he refined his skills over the years and his nature travels grew wider. He worked from a young age at all sorts of jobs: logging, road construction, taxi driving, and moving furniture to name a few. He married Doris Dennis of Nicholsville on May 10, 1955 and soon, Gloria (1955) his first child was born. The young family moved to the Stephenville area to pursue opportunities offered by the Ernest Harmon Air Force Base. Gordon worked at the base fire station for almost two decades. During that time his family grew with the addition of Jamie (1960), Pamela (1968) and Penny (1969). When the American base closed, Gordon went to work as a fire fighter for the town of Stephenville and worked there for the next 26 years. His time with the men at the Stephenville Fire Department was special to him. The men he worked with were considered his brothers. Over his life, Gordon loved his work but his passion was the great outdoors. He spent every free moment outside in the sunshine, wind, rain or snow. He fished, hunted, cut wood, walked, fed birds and small animals, picked berries - he did anything to spend time in his element. Gordon knew every inch of the west coast. He had friends at every turn, and buddies with whom he shared his life and passion for nature. He spent every summer for over 50 years on the banks of South West Brook. He angled the rivers all over his beautiful island. He guided many people who were drawn to his warm personality, infectious energy and welcoming smile. He loved the flora, fish and fauna that inhabited his island and shared this love with his wife, children, grandchildren and friends. Since retiring in 1993, he spent all of his time doing the things he loved: camping, playing cards, smelting with Mike, salmon fishing with Alec and Harold, building campfires and driving his quad. Diagnosed with cancer in 2002, Gordon faced this battle with his usual quiet strength and courage. He lived each day to the fullest. He spent his final summer at South West Brook, enjoying the sound of the rushing water and feeling the wind on his face. He came home to Kippens in September and bravely faced his cancer. Always, he was a kind and loving husband, father and grandfather more concerned with others' worries, hurts and pain than his own. Surrounded by his family and his beloved dog, Gordon's weary body went to its final rest on November 4, 2006, but his spirit remains in the twinkling waters of South West Brook and in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. Gordon's life was well lived and he was well loved. He is survived by his brothers: Calvin (Edwina) and Claude (Veronica), sister: Myrtle (Harold), his wife of 51 years Doris, children: Gloria (Jim), Jamie (Vita), Pamela (Tim) and Penny (Tony), and nine grandchildren: Eric, Joel, Neill, Bethany, Madison, Savannah, Logan, Brady and Myles. He leaves a wide circle of friends and neighbors, fishing buddies and camping friends. He will be missed by his faithful dog Morgan. Funeral services will take place on Wednesday, November 8, 2006 at 2 p.m. at St. Augustine's Church on Hillview Avenue in Stephenville. Cremation to follow. Friends and family may call at Russell's Funeral Home, 57 Prince Rupert Drive, Stephenville, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. As expressions of sympathy, please make donations to the Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital Hospital Foundation - Palliative Care Unit.
