Funeral services for well-known fiddler Willie Gordon will be held Saturday at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Dawson City, Yukon.
Gordon was found dead at his home in Dawson City earlier this month. He was 57.
Gordon was born in Aklavik, N.W.T., and worked as a reporter for CBC in Inuvik, N.W.T. , in the 1970s and '80s. Northerners also remember him as the original host of the "The Moms Show" — a popular radio request show.
The service begins at 2 p.m. and interment will follow at the Dawson City cemetery.
At 5 p.m., there will be a celebration of his life at the Tr'ondek Hwech'in community hall.
