SNYDER - Gordon Taylor 1924-2005 The Snyder family is saddened to announce the passing of Gordon Snyder. Gordon was predeceased by his mother, Alta Snyder, his father, Emrie Snyder, and his sister Liola. He leaves to mourn his wife of 55 years, Anita Snyder, his sister Dorothy Corney, and two sons: Randall (Claire) their children Angela and Ryley, and Craig (Kara) and their children Renae and Claire. Gordon led a meaningful and productive life, which in many ways, reflected the essence of the province he loved. His formative years, spanning the Great Depression, were divided between the family farm and Moose Jaw where his father worked as a railroad engineer and a respected union leader. Family discussions surrounded Christian responsibility to your fellow man and the works of prominent European social thinkers. Gordon was appalled at the injustice of an economic system, which left to its own devices, threw so many into despair and poverty, then quickly flourished when socially unproductive items like tanks, guns, and bombs were built. This view that society should serve all its citizens, not just the wealthy and powerful, led Gordon and his parents to become some of the earliest members of the CCF party which later became the NDP. In 1942, Gordon joined the RCAF, serving Canada until his discharged at the wars end in 1945. He then returned home to take up a career as a railroad engineer, operate the family farm and actively participate in community affairs. Gordon's commitment to the development of a just society led him to seek and win office in the 1960 provincial election under the leadership of T.C. Douglas. In 1962, he was a ""proud foot soldier"" in the fight that brought universal Medicare to Saskatchewan, and ultimately led to its adoption across Canada. Subsequent election wins in 1964, 1971, 1975 and 1978 made Gordon one of Saskatchewan's longest serving MLAs with a total of 22 years in the legislature. His 1971-1982 appointment by Premier A.E. Blakeney to the Provincial Cabinet as Minister of Labour provided the opportunity to develop legislation, which reflected Saskatchewan values of fairness, dignity and equality. As a Cabinet Minister, his favourite legislative accomplishment was the development of another Canadian firstthe Occupational Health and Safety Act, which, since its implementation, has served to protect the lives and health of a great many people from workplace related accidents and illness. Gordon and Anita traveled extensively through North and Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia. These destinations, however, failed to surpass the excitement generated by the fishing trips that Gordon and Eiling Kramer, his long time friend, Legislative colleague, and the father of Gordon's daughter-in-law (Claire), took each may for the opening of the fishing season on the Churchill River.-""MIGHTY WERE THE PREPARATIONS!"". His family was very important to him and he took great pride in the character and abilities of his children and grandchildren. he was also very conscious that his success was a reflection of the quality of the wisdom, talent, skill and commitment of the people who shared his values and fought beside him to make them a reality. Gordon's life will be celebrated at a private family service. Arrangements are entrusted to Regina Funeral Home (306)789-8850.
