Gordon Eldon Toner
It is with great sadness we announce Gordon E. Toner of Harvey
Station, NB passed away July 29, 2021 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers
Hospital at the age of 91. He was the son of the late Raymond and
Florence (Kitchen) Toner and in addition to his parents was
predeceased by his loving wife, Letty, his loving daughter Jo-Ann Hood
and his sister Alice Harris.
Gordon was born on November 30, 1929. He started working for the CPR
in Harvey as a section man at the age of sixteen, retiring at the age
of fifty five. If there was a broken rail or a missing bolt, he was
the man who found it.
He enjoyed playing bingo, gardening, playing cards, doing puzzles,
scratching lottery tickets and doing seek a word puzzles. He also
loved watching the trains and counting the cars. We will never forget
his love for cookies and pink peppermints which he always had a bag of
in his pocket.
He is survived by his children, Eldon Toner (Kathy), Fredericton, NB,
George Toner (Jennifer), Harvey, NB and Marvena Harris (Alfred),
Tracy, NB; a son-in-law, Albert Hood, Harvey, NB; a brother-in-law,
Art Harris; a sister-in-law, Noreen Jolley (Alex); a special nephew,
Burton Toner; his grandchildren, who he loved dearly, Ryan Toner
(Holly), Dylan Harris (Tanisha), Derek Toner, Timmy Hood (Sarah),
Tara Toner, Amanda Hood, Lydia and Clinton Case; his great
grandchildren, Jacob, Nathan, Gordon, Wyatt, Alice, Freya, Chantal and
Denver; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff and nurses of 4SW at DECH and
White Rapids Manor in Fredericton Junction, NB while he was a resident
there. Their professional care made him feel at home. Special thank
you to Rhonda Moore (or Wanda as Gordon called her) for the in-home
care and love for our Dad.
At the request of the family there will be no visitation. A private
graveside service will be held at Harvey Settlement Cemetery with
