             and Joseph; parents Doris and Bill (Winnipeg); brother Dennis
             and family (Brampton), many members of a large extended
             family and a great number of dear friends. Born in Winkler,

             commitment to issues of poverty, Gordon's research and
             teaching interests took him as a visiting professor to universities
             in B.C, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, the
             United States, Australia and the Ukraine. He presented at
             national and international conferences, and served as an advisor,
             board member and consultant to community, provincial and
