Obituary for Gordon Ervin Neu

Gordon Ervin Neu
December 16, 1932 (Star City, SK)
May 14, 2023 (Calgary, AB)

It’s with sad hearts we announce the sudden passing of Gordon. Left to cherish his memory are his only child, Heather Nelson (Ron); his sister, Tilly Sorenson; sister-in-law, Joan Neu; brother-in-law, Colin Campbell (Ruth); as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Dad was the living embodiment of the mechanic- inventor. Starting at age ten with a motorized bicycle and a prop driven stoneboat he continued well into his late 60’s with three full restorations of 1940 era farm tractors. No idle idea ever went “unbuilt”.

For a short time in the early ‘50s, Dad was stationed at the RCAF Air Base in London ON. Although he did not make the Air Force a career, he never lost his love of flight. A highlight of his retirement was being a part of the team at the Air Bomber Command Museum (Nanton) who rebuilt numerous plane engines including the major restoration of the Rolls-Royce Merlin.

Dad’s wit, humour and happy go lucky personality can never be replaced. We miss you already.
