In Gordon’s younger years he worked at the Lismore Seafood Factory, where he met his future wife Doris. Gordon went on to work construction for many years, drive taxi, and retired from the maintenance department at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow. In his later years you would always find Gordon scootin’ the streets of New Glasgow on his scooter, and with his friends at McDonald’s enjoying a cheeseburger and coffee. 

 Cremation has taken place. There will be no visitation by Gordon’s request.

A graveside service will be held at a later date at the Holy Cross Cemetery in New Glasgow. 

In memory of Gordon, donations can be made to a charity of choice.

A special thanks to the wonderful staff at the RK MacDonald Nursing home in Antigonish who took impeccable of him, especially during his last days with us.
