Mr Gordie was one of the funniest and easiest man to talk to will miss him dearly but will always be in my heart ❤️
Gord was a blast to work with and a fierce Friend and neighbor, I will miss him Greatly
When I met Gord it was shortly after I began managing a student residence in 2019. Gord and Lyn have put their touch on virtually every paintable surface there. They’d been there for many years before me. I remember Gord most for his quick words and kindness, his stern advice to the students, his laughter and warm smile… and the sparkle in his blue eyes!
Gord had always been very kind to me and gave me words of encouragement that made my transition smoother. I appreciated so much that even though he was very close to the previous manager, Gord kept an open mind and showed me complete respect and kindness. I want to honor him by saying that Gord was incredibly aware, intuitive, funny and very genuine every time I spoke with him. I have always had complete admiration and respect for Gord and Lyn. Together they made such a dynamic team and I will always hold in my heart how welcoming, easy-going, funny and great they both are.

Epitaph on my own Friend
An honest man here lies at rest,
As e’er God with His image blest:
The friend of man, the friend of truth;
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
Few heads with knowledge so inform’d:
If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
By Robert Burns
