Gordon Skrepnek, beloved husband and partner of 23 years to Bernice (Bunny) Ramsdin, passed away on Sept 2nd at the Chemainus Health Care Centre. With him by his bedside were his wife, his son Daniel Skrepnek, his grandson Jason Skrepnek and his nurses whose kindness helped us through a difficult time.

He is deeply missed by his four children from an earlier marriage to Irma Skrepnek who passed away in 1995. They are, Linda Skrepnek, Daniel Skrepnek, Barbara Skrepnek, Gordon Skrepnek and wife Tracy.
He is also sadly missed by his grandchildren, Sean Irwin, Jaime Irwin,Jason Skrepnek, Julie Skrepnek, Simon Hoogenboom, Laura Hoogenboom, Carol Khalil, Alice Skrepnek, Gordie Skrepnek, Jeff Skrepnek, Dan Skrepnek and Jessica Skrepnek, and by his many great grandchildren.
He is also deeply missed by stepchildren Poppy Ramsdin and Terry Ramsdin, step grandchildren Lynn Knittel and Lyle Knittel, Nicole Slade and Cameron Slade and wife Naghma and by his many many friends and others of the families.
He was a good and kind man.
Heartfelt thanks to those who cared for him at the Health Care Centre.
