The CAHS extends our condolences to the friends and family of CAHS member Gordon Elmer.

Gordon Elmer, of Moose Jaw, passed away on May 16, 2015. Gord was born in Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan on May 16, 1933. He was predeceased by his parents, brother Vincent (Phyllis) and sister June Elmer. He will be lovingly remembered by his sister Patricia Elmer. Gordon will be profoundly missed and forever in the hearts of his wife of 59 years Mary, sons Rick (Wendy), Barry (Brian Charron), and Dale, and his daughter Sharon (Lloyd) Eckmire; grandchildren Jason and David (Maureen) Elmer, Michael and Jennifer Seabrook, Beatrice and Colin Elmer; along with extended family members Dale Seabrook (Anita Bouvier), Teresa Jenkinson, and numerous nephews, nieces and friends. Gord was raised in Yellow Grass and Weyburn, Saskatchewan. He was a very accomplished, self-taught musician who made many contributions to his communities by sharing this gift. Although he had an extreme passion for music, he pursued a career in psychiatric nursing. Upon graduating from the Saskatchewan Training Centre in Weyburn, he accepted an appointment at Valley View Centre in Moose Jaw where he served for 36 years before retiring. In the evenings he enriched the lives of many students by sharing his passion. He taught private lessons and conducted band in the communities of Loreburn, Assiniboia and Mossbank. Gord also served twelve years as the band master with the Saskatchewan Dragoons, and five years with the Moose Jaw Lions Band organization. Gord had many interests and hobbies. He spent countless hours working on our family history and researching the Commonwealth Air Training Plan, a portion of the history of Saskatchewan aviation which will now become part of the Saskatchewan Archives. None of these compared to his love of the family cabin at White Bear Lake. He enjoyed sharing a coffee on the deck with friends and family, golfing, playing solitaire, watching storm fronts roll across the lake and of course viewing the beautiful sunsets. He instilled the dedication to family and the importance of a strong work ethic, balance and good morals in all of his children, his life lessons will live on in all of us. The family would like to express their deepest gratitude for the loving care provided to Gordon during his brief time at Guardian Grove. A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
