Obituary of Gordon Ezrem Williams Sr
It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Ezrem Williams Sr. announce his passing on February 24, 2021. Born in West Saint John, NB, on December 13, 1929, Gordon was a son of the late Leonard and Gladys (Wheaton) Williams.
Gordon’s family always came first. He loved spending time with the whole family, especially at the annual pre-Christmas Yankee swap where everyone would gather. Gordon was a long-time resident of Quispamsis, spending 45 years in the town, and even helped to build Quispamsis United Church. He was an excellent carpenter, who loved to build, and was an avid hunter. For 62 years he would head to his camp at Cumberland Bay to hunt and fish. He also spent many years with family and friends hunting deer and moose, and shared lots of time on Victoria Beach.
Gordon is survived by his loving children: Al Williams (Karen) of Kingston, NB, Shawn Walton of Cumberland Bay, NB, Tara McConchie (Glendon) of Hampton, NB, and Gordon Williams (Carrie) also of Hampton; his grandchildren: Aaron, Krystyna (Kyle), Kurtis, Mitchell, Doug (Brittney), Ryan (Mallory), Jenna (Paul), Jake (Sarah), Sarah (Chad), Keira (Jordan), and Tyler; his great-grandchildren: Tori, Brodie, Charley, Avery, Cody, Dyson, Camden, Rowan, and Caden. Gordon is also survived by his brothers: Len (Doreen) and Calvin; his sisters-in-law: Joan and Marlys; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to his parents, Gordon was predeceased by his loving wife, Barbara Dawn Williams (Allison), and his brother, Art.
