Gordon Roi Fairbanks

Gordon Roi Fairbanks passed away October 21, 2022, from heart failure in Ogden, Utah. Born June 28, 1963, he was the 3rd of 4 children born to Rulon Roi and Sandra Smith Fairbanks. The family moved to Bountiful, Utah in 1967 and he went to schools there, graduating from Viewmont High. He excelled in art, swimming, and water polo. He graduated college with an associate degree in Art.

Gordon and Kim Rushforth married and had four children: Sheree, Danny (Shannon), Justice & Julian. He worked installing drywall and made all kinds of art.

His sarcastic sense of humor will be missed. He loved music, karaoke, swimming and animals. He was caring and giving.

He was preceded in death by his father. He's survived by his mother, Sandra Wilde, sister Pam (Guy, deceased) Loosle, brother Mark Fairbanks, sister Sheila Fairbanks, all 4 children and one grandson, Hendrix.

Our family would like to thank the staff at Lomond Peaks and McKay Dee Hospital.
