Wregget, Gordon Joseph – Age 88 of Dartmouth, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2019 in St. Vincent’s Nursing Home, Halifax. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Gord served in the Royal Canadian Air Force for 33 years, retiring as a Warrant Officer (R) CD2.
Gord’s military career took him to Europe where he travelled extensively with his family. In later years, he and Helen enjoyed travelling with their combined families as well as on their own, creating wonderful memories for everyone.
He was an avid sportsman who enjoyed swimming, playing hockey and riding his bike. When he finally packed his sporting goods away, he methodically mastered a virtual flight simulator program on his laptop, flying into many nearby towns and cities. The question was always, “where have you been today, Gord”? And he usually responded with “Charlottetown” or “Greenwood”.
Gord is survived by his wife, Helen Wallace-Wregget, sons, David (Patricia), Mississauga, Ont., Kenneth (Nicole), Pittsburgh, PA; stepchildren, Joanne Reid, J. Dana Wallace, Janet (Dan) Hamilton, all of Dartmouth; Jacqueline Wallace, Shubenacadie; grandchildren, Matthew, Courtney and Paige Wregget, Emma Dickie (Jonathan Young), Moira Dickie, Sarah Reid, J. Dylan, Noah and Joely Wallace; great-granddaughter, Sylvia Dickie-Young; sister-in-law, Karen Wregget; niece Linda (David) Hartley; nephew, Keith Wregget. Gord was predeceased by his first wife, Georgette; brothers, Mervin, Lawrence, Donald; parents, Myrtle and Claude Wregget.
Cremation has taken place. As per Gord’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. Interment will take place at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to Parkinson Canada.
We want to thank the fifth floor staff of St. Vincent’s Nursing Home for their compassion and respect in caring for Gord.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
