Relation: My father & Pete were 1st cousins

Joanne and I are heavy hearted to lose my good cousin Gordon and our thoughts and prayers are for Audrey, their children and grandchildren. He was a great Moshoom to his grandchildren. We will miss Gordon, his humour and sincerity.
He was a respected Metis Elder and an active Citizen of the Metis Nation Alberta. When the Metis Nation loses an Elder we also lose a piece Metis Culture and History. Rest in Peace cousin and we will always remember you as a friend and the good times we had. Your family is there in support of Audrey.
