Our father, Gord Landers, made that wonderful cross over to Heaven on Sunday, December 20th. He had a wonderful, full, healthy life and was absolutely ready to go. The cancer might think it won the battle, but we’re giving God all the credit on selecting the time for him to go home to him. He was ready to see our mom and all his family and friends. He left knowing how much he was loved and we all knew how much he loved us. Mr. Gordon Raymond Landers of Stratford, died peacefully at his home on Sunday, December 20, 2020.
