Gordon James Loewen

May 7, 1955 – July 30, 2023

Gordon (Gordy) James Loewen passed awy at home in Point Roberts, Washington, on July 30, 2023.

Born Cartwright, Manitoba, to Wilhelm (Bill) and Agatha Loewen; he was the second of five children. Gordy was predeceased by his father Bill and younger brother Gerald. Gordy is survived by his loving wife Annette, mother Agatha Siemens, siblings Alma Lee, Wes (Bev) Loewen and Luella (Roy) Pennington, his children Angela, Leslie, Tanya (Sean), Cody (Becky), and Devon (Jacquie), his stepchildren Annette (Jim), Ken (Allison), Beth (Tim), and Scott (Heather), and 17 grandchildren as well as numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces
and nephews.

In his younger years he loved running in track meets at school and playing baseball. Later he enjoyed golfing for exercise and relaxation. Gordy was a commercial truck driver for more than 40 years and transported almost anything you could think of including furniture, fertilizer, lumber, drywall, food products, jet engines and other airline equipment across the United States and Canada.

Congestive heart failure forced him into retirement in 2014. After he came off the road, he helped to care for his mother-in-law Myra in her final years. Gordy also enjoyed swimming and aquatic exercise both at Winskill and at home.

He was a pet lover and had many cats and dogs of his own throughout his life. Gordy enjoyed music and was also known to dance occasionally! He was a fan of car racing, wrestling, soccer, the Mariners and the Seahawks. He liked to watch cooking shows too and made a delicious chili every year for the July 4th Independence Day celebration. Gordy had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke. You always knew he was up to something when you saw that twinkle in his eye which inevitably ended with laughter.

Most of all he enjoyed spending time with family and friends, something he didn’t get to do a lot of when he was on the road all those years. Gord was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend who will be deeply missed by all. Should you wish, a donation to the charity of your choice in loving memory of Gord Loewen.
