May 1, 1949 – June 7, 2021
Gordon passed away peacefully with family by his side after a short but strong battle with cancer. His 72 years in this world were an example to all that met him of what it is to be a caring son, a loving sibling, a wonderful husband, an extraordinary father, and the best Poppa there could ever be. If you knew Gordon, he probably helped you and was never one to pass on lending a hand.
When you think of Gordon, you probably smile at the memories, whether it was his sense of humour or his love for life or others. Gordon was proud to serve the City of Nepean as a firefighter for 30 years. His work didn’t stop when he retired, having been a carpenter for 42 years, Gordon was still going to job sites to lead many projects. He was always happy with a hammer in his hand.
Gordon will be greatly missed by many. He was the devoted husband and best friend of Arlene for 51 years. He was the loving father of Robert (Michelle) and Angela (Jason). He was the greatest Poppa to Emily (Jared), Jordan, Jessica, Spencer, and Tori. He will be missed by his brother and sisters, as well as their spouses, nieces, nephews, friends, and neighbours.
He was quick to make friends with everyone and was loved by so many. We celebrate the fact that he is with his sweet Jesus, walking the streets of gold today. Until we meet again, you are in our hearts.
