DEAN, Gordon Hugh - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather, Gordon Hugh Dean, on Wednesday, August 2, 2000, at the St. Boniface Hospital, after a short but feisty battle with lung disease. A memorial service for Gordon will be held at Regents Park United Church on Monday, August 14, at 2:00 p.m., preceded by a private interment. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Khartum Patients Transportation Fund, Khartum Temple, 1155 Wilkes Ave., Winnipeg, Man., R2P 1B9, or to other charities of ones choice would be greatly appreciated.
