Gordon Allen Reid


Gordon Allen Reid (December 9, 1957 – February 5, 2024)

Gordon was born in a small town in Saskatchewan to Ivy and Edwin Reid. Gordon spent most of his young adult life in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan before moving to Edson, Alberta.
Gordon had three children with Lois Reid (McFall). Michelle Martin (Cory), their four children, Ciarra (Nick Elgert), Brody, William (Katelyn), and Brandt. Rachel Bachman (Kevin), their son, Archie. Michael Reid (Biljana) and their three children, Ana Maria, Nikolina, and Eric.

Gordon shared his home with his beautiful, loving wife of 13.5 years. Twyla and Gordon knew each other most of their lives and finally got together in 2010. They built a
beautiful life together. Gordon enjoyed having Twyla’s family join his own. He built many
memories with her son Trevor Kraig (Anna) their two children, Cheyanne and Wayde, her daughter Jody Morris (Chris), and their two children, Haley and Lily.

Gordon eventually moved to Thorsby, Alberta where he lived for the last 13.5 years. Gordon was well-liked, the life of the party and the coffee shop. His jokes and storytelling were known all around Saskatchewan and Alberta. Gordon loved being outdoors and spending time with his family. He had 10 siblings, 6 brothers and 4 sisters. Gordon was also the middle child; he was the glue that held his family together. If he wasn’t organizing ball games at Ruby Lake, he was trying to dump you off the tube behind the boat.

Gordon worked most of his life in the forestry industry, have it be, driving trucks, hauling logs and chips, or running various pieces of equipment.

Gordon enjoyed playing slow-pitch, horseshoes, camping, quadding, horses, cooking over the open fire, and birds. His love for birds was very evident by the many birdhouses in his yard. Twyla and Gordon spent countless hours beautifying their yard. He called their home the Sugar Shack. Gordon loved garage sales, he would scour the papers and Facebook to see where the best ones were. He found many treasures and would spend many hours bringing those treasures back to life to use in their yard.

Gordon is predeceased by his parents, Edwin and Ivy Reid, his brother, Gilbert Reid, nephew, Kevin Reid, brother-in-law, Marcel LeBlue, sisters in law, Madeline Reid, Carolyn Reid, and Audrey Reid. Gordon is survived by his siblings, Tim Reid, Terry Menzies (Allan), Gerald Reid, Barry Reid, Marilyn LeBlue, Ronnie Reid (Kim), Bruce Reid (Marge), Darla Reid, Carrie Kowalko (Brian) and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, and countless friends.

Karen & Glen MacEwan

So many memories!
One I’d like to share is a friend & I went to a house party at Starlite Trlr Court, HBay. In the livingroom people were gathered ’round with Gordie & some other guy dueling off with jokes.
Everyone was entertained for a very long time until the other fella finally ran out of jokes. Gordie kept on telling more. He won that match.
People were drawn to him, his charisma, kindness, sense of humor, fun & silly giggle.
He will never leave us because he will live forever in our memories.
Sincere condolences
