Rank, LCDR Gordon Henry - 77, of Kentville, NS. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of loving husband and devoted father Gordon Rank on August 12, 2017 at Valley Regional Hospital. Gordon retired from the Royal Canadian Navy after 39 years of service, 37 years as a Clearance Diver. He began his career at CFB Shearwater as an OS (Ordinary Seaman) and finished in Ottawa as Director of Diving Safety. He received a Lieutenant Governor citation for bravery in 1971. He had a passion for healthy living, exercised daily, and enjoyed organic vegetable gardening. After retirement he joined a Tuesday night bowling league at Fairlanes New Minas, golfed multiple times a week at Eagle Crest and was a member of Valley Seniors Golf Association, was a proud and active Grampy, and faithfully acted as mechanic and carpenter on the many occasions his wife and daughters needed his expertise. Gordon will be forever remembered by his wife Shirley Rank of 54 years; daughters, Susan Rank of Coldbrook, and Lori Rank-Dunn of Dartmouth; grand-daughters, Brook Dunn and Lexi Dunn; siblings, Donald Rank (Sandy) and Diana Bishop, both of London Ontario. Special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and health care professionals in Medical B for their care and compassion. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Whites Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services. There will be no visitation by Gord's wishes. A sea burial and private family celebration will take place at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation Palliative Care Fund.
