1941 – 2021
After battling failing health this past year, Mr. Gordon Davy of Lethbridge passed away at St. Michael’s Palliative Health Care on Friday, February 12, 2021 at the age of 79 years.
Gordon was born on June 3, 1941 and raised on the farm near Shaughnessy. He left Picture Butte High School to pursue selling for Welders Supply. Apart from farming for many years and then operating an excavating business, he was a salesman which allowed him to have contact with customers through out Southern Alberta. He turned his selling expertise to Real Estate and continued be in the business for over 30 years until his health prevented him from continuing to work.
Dad had a love for travelling and saw many parts of the world. He was especially fond of Australia, making many trips there and even living there for a time. He still had plans to go back to see his friends once again. Peru, Hawaii, Russia, Holland, cruises to Japan and South America and the Caribbean were just a few of his travels. While living in Shaughnessy and Diamond City area, he was an avid supporter of the Elks and Fish and Game Association and other service clubs. He was always a supporter of various causes such as Rotary fund raisers, mission trips for “sis” or his nieces and sporting events or trips for his nephews. He was a generous man and always had a heart to support and encourage people. While living at “Diamond City Corner” for many years, most of the community enjoyed the “Boxing Day’ breakfast that brought family and friends together for a time and fun and laughter.
Gordon is survived by his three sons, Colin (Sandi), Scott and Dan (Romina); grandchildren, Mackenzie, Zoey, Danni, Vincent and Roman; sisters Shirley Swartzenberger; nieces Cheryl (Garry) Gudmonson, Lorna (Bernie) Wyrostok, Judy (Mike) Schimanski; nephew Rod (Brenda) Swartzenberger; twelve great nieces and nephews, a great great nephew and niece, and special friend Evelyn Hogg.

Rest in Peace Gordon .
Just read this sad news….Gordon was a born salesman and he even sold me a life insurance policy in Calgary…We became sort of distant when I moved to Calgary…Fun guy and we used to terrorize Shaughnessy together on Halloween night….I met his Mom and Dad, Pete and Lois and his Sister Shirley….Even heard his Dad playing in a band a long time ago….Everyone sure worked hard on that sugar beet farm! My condolences to the Davy Family during this time of Grief….Wayne Brown
