<div itemprop="description">Gordon Earl Wintermute<br>March 12 1939 - September 7, 2016<br><br>Gord Wintermute passed away at St. Paul's Hospital on September 7, 2016 at the age of 77. <br><br>He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife of 56 years Elsie; his son Robin (Marnie) and their children, Emma and Sophie; and his son Kurt (Charmaine) and their children, Abby and Kade. <br><br>He is predeceased by his parents Joe and Elsie Wintermute. <br><br>Gord was born in Prince Albert where he went to school at PACI and met the love of his life Elsie. He worked for the CN in PA and later relocated to Saskatoon where he raised his family and worked at Labatt's Brewery for 24 years and then at Jubilee Ford and for the Wyant family. <br><br>Gord's passion was spending time at his cabin at Waskesiu where he enjoyed golfing, fishing and boating. He loved the time he spent at the lake with his grandchildren as well as watching them at their activities. He was proud to serve on the Board of Directors of the Waskesiu Golf Course. Gord was involved in refereeing hockey for almost 40 years as well as assigning referees as Referee-in-Chief and serving in an executive role for Minor, Adult Recreational and Old Timers hockey. He was inducted into the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame in 2015 as a builder for his roles in hockey and into the International Old Timers' Sports Hall of Fame in 1987 as a referee. He enjoyed spending time with his golfing buddies, referees, co-workers and neighbours. He was always quick to share a fishing hole, allow a mulligan or a foot wedge and get out his tools to help out a friend. <br><br>The family is comforted knowing he is in a place where his tee shots are always straight, the pickerel are big and always biting and the Riders and the Canadiens always win. <br><br>The family would like to sincerely thank his family doctor, Dr. Ed Nykiforuk, and the wonderful Palliative Care doctors and staff at St. Paul's hospital for their care and support. <br><br>In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Paul's Hospital Foundation, Palliative Care Unit, 1702 20th St West, Saskatoon, SK S7M 0Z9 or online at <br><br>At Gord's request there will be no funeral service.
