Gordon NAGY

NAGY – Gordon 1922 ~ 2011. Gordon William Nagy passed away peacefully with his family at his side, on December 17, 2011, at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. He was born on March 31, 1922 in Quinton Saskatchewan and moved to the Fraser Valley with his wife Emma in 1946. Dad was multi-talented. He was not only comfortable working the farm and logging camps, and riding the freight cars in his youth, but loved entertaining with his fiddle all his life. He also loved having people stop and watch him and mom on the dance floor. He had a great mechanical mind and was always seeing a better way to do things. Along with several entrepreneurial ventures with mom, he spent twenty years rising through the ranks to plant superintendant at Westroc Industries, including a six week training tour in Japan. In his later years he loved to travel and have his family around him. He is survived by his brother Steve and his sisters Helen, Barbara and Margaret. He will be lovingly remembered and sorely missed by Emma, his wife of 69 years, daughters Caroline and Darlene (Willy), sons Gerry and Kirk (Marianne), six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Mass will be 11:00 am on Thursday, December 22th, at St Ann’s Catholic Church, 33333 Mayfair, Abbotsford.
