Obituary of Edward Gordon Lannon

The family of Gordon Lannon are saddened to announce his passing at the age of 100 on May 29, 2022 at the Central Newfoundland Hospital in Grand Falls-Windsor. 

Gordon was born on April 27, 1922 in Fermeuse, NL.  He was the son of the late Thomas and Lucy (Power) Lannon.  He was the last of his family.

Gordon loved his family of 45 and counting.  He loved his wife Marie of almost 76 years more than anything.

Gordon is survived by his wife Marie, children, Brenda (Bill), Prince Albert Saskatchewan; Gordon (Margaret), Pasadena, NL; Cyril, Bishop's Falls; James Jerome (deceased) (Dianne) Paradise, NL; Barry (Jo-Anne), New Glasgow, NS; Edward (Mary), Bishop's Falls; Barbara, Bishop's Falls, NL; and Lisa (Clinton), New Glasgow, NS.  Just a little over 5 years ago, Gordon and Marie had their hearts broken upon the death of their son, Jerome.

He will be dearly missed by his Grandchildren; Kelli, Erin, Brendan, Greg, Kim, Michael,  Marc, Adam, Chris, David, Janet, Michelle, Raven, Shana, Mairi and Regan. and Great-Grandchildren; Matthew, Tyler, Sedona, Josh, Jake, Justin, Zachary, Kyle, Caleb, Ariana, Grayson, Alexandria, Ian, Levi, Archer, Kathryn, Claire, Oliver and Maren.

Gordon spent most of his working career with the Newfoundland Railroad, and was a proud WW II veteran, a lifelong member of the Royal Canadian Legion, a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus and member of Sacred Heart Parish.  He loved his hometown of Bishop's Falls almost as much as a game of cards and his various dogs. 

Father Moses will conduct the Funeral Mass at Sacred Heart Parish, Bishop's Falls on Thursday at 11 a.m. with interment at the Roman Catholic Cemetery.

A reception will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall following interment. Everyone is welcome.

Donations in his memory can be made to the Sacred Heart Parish Roman Catholic Cemetery Fund.
