Conley, Gordon

Regiment: S. A. R.

Gordon Conley, born in Wembley AB, was one of 10 children of Charles and Elizabeth (Campbell) Conley. The family moved to the Flying Shot Lake area in 1921 and farmed. They built a large house, and six months later it was destroyed by fire in 1924. Then the family moved to Grande Prairie where Gordon went to school. Gordon was in the army in WW II, and his older brother, Mike, also served in the war. Remaining a bachelor, Gordon settled in San Francisco. He was in a fatal accident in 1954, the same year that both his parents died.
