NIEFER - Gordon Clifford Niefer, lifelong resident of Yorkton, was born on April 12, 1947 and passed away in his home on Dec 31, 2019. He graduated grade 12 in 1966 from YCI. After graduation, he worked various jobs, including the Highway Traffic Board, Driver Instructor, driving Taxi, Limousine, Special Needs Bus, and SIGN Senior Mobility. A common theme throughout his career was the love of professional driving and interacting with his community. In 1967 he married Ruth Falkenberg, who remained his closest confidant throughout the challenges of life. They had two children together: Theresa (Terri) Catherine Kardynal and Cory Brock Niefer. Gordon's home was his castle. He took pride and care in his home and yard, as much as he took pride and care in his neighbours. His garden produced enough to share with his friends and family, whether rain or drought. He was proud of his heirloom seeds that he harvested and replanted year after year. Gordon, who volunteered on the Yorkton Mental Health Board of Directors, was a humble man who assisted others in living quality lives with mental illness, and most importantly he led by example. Throughout his life, he was always donating significant amounts to families and organizations that he believed in. Gordon was an advocate and a storyteller; he spoke up when he saw wrong in the world, he cried when he saw sorrow, and he laughed boisterously with those he loved. The 12th of 12 children, the youngest/"baby" of a big family, his love and respect for the "Niefers" was evident in his actions, no more so than in his relationship and care of his mother who he connected and cared for daily until her passing. Gordon is predeceased by: his parents Ferdinand (Fred) and Molly Ann (Molly) Niefer, daughter Terri, sisters Wilma and Dorothy, brother David, step- brothers Ernest and Arthur, step-sisters Hilda, Irene and Rita, and sisters-in-laws Joyce and Gwen, and respectfully many other family and friends that were mourned by Gordon. Gordon leaves to mourn and cherish his life: his dear friend Ruth Falkenberg; his son Cory, his daughter in-law Shannon Hood-Niefer; his grandchildren Milla Marie and Heidi Terin; son-in-law Michael Kardynal; brothers Mervin (Marjorie) and Arnold; stepsister Isabel, numerous nieces and nephews (who often referred to him as the family "glue"), and many other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from Zion Lutheran Church in Yorkton with Rev. Andrew Cottrill officiating. Organist, Verna Liebrecht led the congregation in the hymns 'How Great Thou Art', 'Amazing Grace' and 'Abide With Me' . The casketbearers were Mike Kardynal, Cory Napady, Glen & Kevin Niefer, Murray Spezowka and Conrad Schwartz. Memorials were to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Condolences can be left at

I went to school with Gordon. He was a great friend. Whenever I was back in Yorkton, I would usually run into him.
My thoughts are with his family.
