Gordon was born in Caron, Sk. to Davina and Peter Duncan. He was the second youngest of 5 children. He lived his entire life in the Remount District and attended Remount School. He married a Moose Jaw girl, Geraldine Dann and they had four children- David, Patti, Brenda, and Leanne. Gordon and Geri started farming the George Harkness farm in 1950 and a few years later bought the Murray McLean farm and some of his Dad’s land. Gordon also worked in Mortlach at the International Harvester Garage. Dad took pride in everything he did and had! In the early years it was his team of horses and the sleigh. They would bundle up the kids and head to Parkbeg for groceries or to a neighbor’s for an evening of cards and visiting. In the summer, Dad played ball with the Remount Royals and the Edgehill Men’s team. Dad was a pitcher and played left field. When he would travel for a sports day, the whole family would go and the kids were his biggest fans! In the winter, he enjoyed curling and played with many of the neighbors in the area. Dad was always ready to put the kettle on for a cup of tea or coffee when his neighbors would stop by for a visit. He enjoyed a good game of crib but also would not hesitate to tell someone when they “played like a sausage”. In the later years he enjoyed visiting on the phone with friends and family and watching wrestling and curling. He spent many hours on his riding lawn mower ensuring that every blade of grass in the yard was cut and trimmed to perfection! By fall he would often comment “that the nice shade of golden brown was his favorite color”. Dad loved everything FARM! He loved seeding, harvesting, cattle, horses, chickens, birds, deer, rabbits, and most wildlife! He also knew what to do with the ones he didn’t love! And most recently he found companionship in Kitty, a stray cat that became his buddy. Dad found comfort and contentment in the peaceful tranquility that farm life offered. Our Dad was a proud man who lived a good, honest, wholesome life at the farm for all his 92 years. He will be sadly missed by his family- David & Mona Duncan and their family, Scott & Shannon Duncan and their girls Maren and Brigit, Melanie Mytroen & Brent and their children Kirsten, Presley and Jackson, Nikki & Mike Weber and their boys Jake and Brady, Patti and Les Ashton, Brenda & Roland Michel and their family, Nathan & Kamisha and children Abigale and Chase and Jaylee Michel, Leanne & Earl Coward and their family, Zach & Angela and Kolten & Jessica, along with in laws Leona Duncan, Linda Schneikart, Bob &Mary Dann and Darcy & Sheila Dann, Cy Monsees, Helen and George Andrews and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
