Hi Robyn from downunder John's death reg'n is on the BC Vital Stats. John Gordon Petrie Place Vancouver Reg. Number: 1973-09-006029 Date: 1973 4 30 (Yr/Mo/Day) Age: 81 Event:Death Microfilm #: B13324(GSU # 2050076)
a "google" for "RAOGK British Columbia" ought to turn up someone who can look up his death registratio in the archives and possible walk over to the legislative library to look up his obit as well. Let the know you are from "downunder" when you make your requests - I expect most of us are likely to go a few extra steps for someone who can't do it themselves from so far away.
