Robert F Gordon (Bob) Rtd

In the summer of 1959, I graduated from High School and applied to the RCAF to be included in their Aircrew Training Program. I was accepted and sent to the RCAF Stn Centralia for further testing. I passed that process and spent the next 38 years in various aviation and administrative positions in Canada (Summerside, Moose Jaw, Cold Lake, Winnipeg) and Germany (Heidelberg). I started as a Flight Cadet and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel and Headquarters Commanding Officer at Air Command Headquarters in Winnipeg. During my service, I married Joyce and raised three sons; Kevin, Michael and Sean.

Since retirement, I have held positions with our church, the Charleswood Senior Centre and the Hubbell Awards Committee.
