Obituary

FLETT - It is with great sadness that we announce that Gordon left us suddenly, while at home, on Friday, January 24, 2020. Born James Gordon Flett on April 1, 1937 to William and Ada (nee Borwick) Flett. Gordon, as everyone knew him, grew up on the family farm in the Kronau district of Saskatchewan, instilling in him a lifelong love of farming. He attended the local country school until he entered Luther College in Regina for his last years of high school, graduating in 1957. In 1963 he and his brother Bill went into business, buying Northern Motors, operating the Chrysler dealership for many years. They also became busy with other ventures, including Northern Auto Leasing, and Collision Service. In late spring of 1965 Gord met Pattee Harper. After a very brief courtship they became engaged August 13th, and married November 27th 1965 (after harvest!). They joyfully welcomed James into their lives in 1969 followed by Susan in 1972 and their family was complete. Always a hard worker who put in long hours, Gord continued to sell used cars after the dealership was sold in the late 1980's. He thrived on his interaction with people. He was an outgoing, even tempered, and friendly person. He loved meeting people and struck up conversations everywhere, even making friends in grocery store lineups. He was gifted with a great sense of humour. In the 1970's, Gord put his carpentry, electrical and plumbing skills to work, building the cottage at Crystal Lake. Many happy summers were spent there with children, grandchildren, family and friends. Gordon was an excellent athlete in his younger years, setting records at track meets, golfing, hunting, curling, and playing recreational hockey. The fishing trip with friends and family was an annual highlight. Gord also enjoyed many hobbies, which included wood working, carving, stained glass, gardening, and especially pottery. The morning coffee group at the Dairy Queen was a wonderful venue for solving the world's problems. Gord and Pattee were also fortunate enough to travel extensively. A community minded individual, Gordon was a longtime member of the Yorkton Kinsmen and K-40's club. He was a faithful member of St. Andrew's United Church, and a board member and trustee. He also serviced on the PEAK board for several years. The past year and a half was difficult for Gordon as he dealt with many serious health issues. He was not afraid of death, in his own words - "I have had a good life". The tremendous support of friends and family has made an incredible difference these last months. Predeceased by his parents, his brother Bill, and many beloved dogs. He will be deeply missed by his wife and partner of 54 years, Pattee of Yorkton; son James (Sharon), grandsons Robbie (Ashley) and Brady Kaczur, of Calgary; daughter Susan (Syd) Furber and grandsons Sean and Spencer, of Yorkton. Also his brother, Arthur of Regina. Other close family members include his sister-in-law Jill (Jim) Powell; brother-in-law Doug (Joan) Harper; and sister-in-law Marlene Flett, and their families; and his companion and cuddler Jewel. The Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, January 29th 2020 from St. Andrew's United Church with Rev. Jen Dresser officiating. Tributes and Remembrances were given by daughter Susan, daughter-in-law Sharon, and family friends Dianne Holfeld and Crystal Bailey. Kari Ostapovich and Elsa Laxdal read scripture. Music for the service was 'I Danced in the Morning', 'Those Heart That We Have Treasured', 'Would You Bless Our Homes and Families', 'On Eagles Wings', 'As We Go Now' and 'Give To Us Laughter', accompanied by Shani Apland. The interment took place in the Yorkton City Cemetery with son James and daughter Susan as the urnbearers. Condolences can be left at baileysfuneralhome.com

My heart and prayers go out to Pattee and all the family, as I got to know Gord well through Barry Hedley and have know him for 45 years, last time I saw Gord was a weekend in Saskatoon and we had a great visit, he always had time for you.
He was a great person, played hockey and curled against him.
He will be missed.
