He was predeceased by his partner Berthe Greenwood; brother Colin Donaldson; and daughter Jeanette.

Gordon loved hockey, and he had a season pass to the Kelowna Rockets. When he could no longer attend games, he would listen to the games on the radio. Gordon spent his final couple years in Cottonwood Care Centre where he absolutely thrived.
