Gordon Wilkinson 1930-2021

The sad news of the death of local farmer, Gordon Wilkinson, has touched the hearts of so many people in the Rusland Valley. He was well-respected and well-loved amongst the whole communty, and was at the centre of our Rusland Show and Spring Show. His funeral at Rusland Church on Monday 29th November included a beautiful eulogy, poems and songs, and many have asked if they could be made available for all to see and re-visit. They are provided below.
You can also hear Gordon speaking about his life and work on the Rusland Horizons ‘Oral Histories’ webpage.
