October 19, 1948 – March 23,2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon Maine on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. Gordon was born October 19, 1948 in Edmonton, Alberta to Myrtle and Roy Maine. He was the first of seven children.
Gordon was a gentle and kind person who made friends easily. He enjoyed family get togethers, car shows, singing to the Lord, and most recently a love of Gospel music. He loved to travel and shared his experiences through photography. Gordon enjoyed watching sports (he could tell you sports stats -both current and from years before). He was an Edmonton Cerebral Palsy Association committee member and enjoyed outings and meetings with his fellow committee members. Gordon was a dedicated member of Beulah Alliance Church – attending services, Christmas productions, and enjoying the learning and friendships made during numerous Bible Studies. He loved spending time during the summer at Camp Nakamun and was Camp Counsellor there for several summers. In his school years, Gordon enjoyed the track team and continued to walk or run to raise funds for many charities. Throughout Gordon’s life, the challenges of having Cerebral Palsy, did not stop him from doing the things he loved to do. He accepted his limitations and tried to make the best of things. Gordon completed a Diploma in Accounting from NAIT and also a Bachelor of Religious Education Degree from the Canadian Bible Institute (CBI) in Regina in 1988. He was an eager and committed student and valuable employee in the many jobs he worked at.
Gordon leaves to mourn his siblings, Ron Maine (Margaret), Trevor Maine (Chris), Marilyn Tomlinson (Bill), Don Maine, Colleen Malanchen (Dale) and Sharon Weller (Dale). Gordon was a devoted Godfather, and a much loved Uncle to 13 nieces and nephews and 10 great nieces and nephews. He touched the lives of many friends, aunts and uncles, cousins, and anyone who spent time with him.
Gordon was predeceased by his Mother in 1997 and Father in 2009.
Gordon will be missed beyond measure by his family and the friends that he has left behind. Though he is gone, he will never be forgotten. though we grieve as a family, we anticipate the day we will be reunited.

“Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
