SELF, GordonPosted: April 26th, 2017
MR. GORDON ALEXANDER SELF, much loved son of Mrs. Phyllis Self, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the age of 57 years.
Gordon was a man with a very positive spirit and huge heart whose infectious laugh brought smiles to everyone around him. He enjoyed all of the small things in life and was always up for experiencing anything new and exciting. Happiest when outside, Gordon loved the sun, the wind and listening to the rustling of the leaves.
Besides his devoted mother Phyllis Self of Calgary, Gordon will be lovingly remembered by his siblings: Kathi (Patrick) Langston of Ottawa, Christina (Norman) Fiege of Victoria, Patricia Laliberte of Ottawa and James Self of Calgary, and his nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Dr. George Self in 1985. Gordon will also be truly missed by his roommates and everyone at Southern Alberta Community Living Association who had the pleasure of knowing him.
A celebration of Gordon’s life will be held in Calgary at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would request that donations in Gordon’s memory be made to either the Down Syndrome Research Foundation www.dsrf.org or the Heart and Stroke Foundation www.heartandstroke.ca.
