In memory of those who have Crossed the Bar
SENEBALD, Gordon Paul - It is with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the passing of Gordon Senebald, longtime resident of the Weston neighbourhood, in Winnipeg, MB. Age 74 years young.
He is survived by his loving wife June, son Jason Senebald, stepson Blaine Triskle and wife Lisa, brother Raymond Senebald and sister Betty-Ann Boddy; grandchildren, Marlie (Lulu) and Alistair (Big Al) Triskle; as well as by nephews, James Senebald and Paul Boddy. Gord was predeceased by his mother and father, Maria and Edward; his sister-in-law Georgina and nephew Clint.
Gord was a member of The Royal Canadian Navy from 1965 to 1970 when he decided to retire and join civvy ranks. He reached the rank of Leading Seaman several times which prompted him to put his "Hook on with Velcro". He said you Navy guys would understand.
He left us to soon, but now he is with his first love, Penny (Gord's dog). May you both have fun chasing gophers in Heaven. She's been waiting for you.
As per Gord's request, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date due to Covid.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Winnipeg Dog Pound or the Salvation Army. (Winnipeg Free Press 30 Jan 2021)
