BENJAMIN Gordon Craig, R.N. (Retired) – age 77, of Yarmouth N.S. passed away unexpectedly on March 24, 2019 at Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Born in Halifax on February 23, 1942 he was a son to the late Lloyd and Mildred (Benjamin) Harrison of Kentville. Gordon was a loving husband, father, and grandfather with a kind and gentle soul. He started his working career as a psych orderly before working as a CNA. He would later graduate from Yarmouth School of Nursing as a RN, then graduated from ST FX with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He worked over 50 years in nursing at many hospitals in Nova Scotia and Maine. Gordon finished his last 7 years of his working career at the Villa St Joseph du Lac in Dayton, Yarmouth Co. He was always noted to have a great bedside manner and being caring and compassionate to his patients and their families. Gordon was a lover of all things musical. He played piano very early into his childhood first by ear and then later by studying the instrument. He was a faithful member of Yarmouth North Baptist Church where he was the pianist. In his spare time, he was a voracious reader of anything he could get his hands on. He is survived by his loving wife Beverley (Gardner); sons, Craig (Allison) Benjamin, Lexington Kentucky; David Benjamin, Dartmouth; Pastor Mark (Erin) Benjamin, Raleigh North Carolina; daughter, Akiko Sakaki-Benjamin, Yarmouth; and 13 grand children. Besides his parents he was predeceased by his sister, Phyllis (Clifton) Prest. Cremation has taken place under the care of Sweeny’s Funeral Home and Crematorium, Yarmouth. A celebration of Gordon life will take place Saturday March 30, 2019 at 2 P.M. from Yarmouth North Baptist Church with Rev. Dr. Shawn Kehoe officiating. Interment will take place at a later date in Gaspereau Memorial Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations in memory can be made to Yarmouth North Baptist Church.

Dear Bev and family, My heart was broken when I heard of Gordon's passing. He was such a caring person and good friend to all who knew him. Everyone loved his piano playing and many came to church early just to hear him play the prelude. He will be missed by our church family and all who knew him. My heart goes out to you and your family and pray that God will comfort you. Thinking of you and your family with Love, Prayers and Sincere Sympathy. Helen

Dear Bev and family,
I was so saddened to hear of Gordon's passing. He was a gifted musician who I could always count on to play the piano at our Seniors Christmas Banquet. His presence will be truly missed as well as seeing him regularly at the barber shop.
Our prayers are for your family.
Love Wayne & Vickie
