Gordon Hyacinthe Linklater, 63, of Steinbach Manitoba passed away on December 27th, 2021, from unknowingly knowledge that he had Covid-19 in the comfort of his home.

Gordon was born in The Pas, MB on September 8th, 1958 and was the eldest son to MaryJane Bird Linklater and Henry Charles Linklater. They lived in Pakatawagan, Manitoba as a child and then moved to Winnipeg MB. He met the love of his life, Rita Mayner (my love) in the early 80s. The two got married on June 7th, 2008, after 25 years of courting.  Gordon and Rita were together approximately 38 years or more in total.

He loved his wife and grandchildren very much and loved having them around. Gordon would do anything to make them happy and laugh.

Gordon enjoyed long drives up north to visit family, being outdoors and embracing the animals and airplanes around him with his binoculars.

Gordon had worked at Blue Water Wash for 20 years and loved his job and his co workers who ended up becoming his friends.

Gordon is survived by his wife Rita of Steinbach MB, son Bryan (Victoria), grandchildren Erica, Brendan and Tyson.
