In memory of

Gord Gregory

June 26, 1942 -  July 6, 2021

It is with great sorrow that we have to share that on Tuesday July 6, 2021, Gordon Wayne Gregory, loving husband, stepfather, son, brother and friend, passed away at age 79.
Gord was born on June 26, 1942 in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. He is survived by his wife Lyn, his daughters Shannon (Stephen) and Jennifer (Rey), granddaughters (Scarlett, Sydney, Ella, Lily and Hannah), his siblings Joan (Bob), Jim (Marg), Jerry (Linda) and Rob, his brother-in-law Don and many nieces and nephews he loved very much.
Gord was full of life and had so much life and laughter to share with the world. He had an immense love for sports, especially hockey, and grew up playing sports with his brothers and many friends he made throughout the years. And while Gord always cheered for all Canadian sports teams the Montreal Canadiens always had a special place in his heart. He worked in the automotive industry for many years which was a great fit as he had such a natural talent for connecting with people and was probably the most honest salesperson you could have ever met. Everyone always commented how he made them feel comforted by his welcoming nature and warm smile. After leaving the automotive business to move up to Orillia, Gord and the love of his life decided to embark on a new adventure and began a successful decorating business which they ran for the last 15 years.
Nothing was more important to Gord than his family. And nothing gave him more pride than his children and his grandchildren. His beautiful granddaughters gave “Poppy” incredible purpose and joy and he would do anything to show them so much unconditional love and support by always being there for them.
More than 30 years ago , Gord met Lyn, fell in love and continued to have many adventures including sharing their love of travel.
Gord’s welcoming heart, genuine warmth, contagious laughter and his love for life will always be in our hearts. We will miss him daily and greatly. While there is an empty place in all of our hearts today he always felt that this was such a wonderful world. We are thankful for everyday with him. Please take a moment to view the video (under Media) and upload any photos or special memories.

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.

A Scottish Blessing -
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

Sincerely and with love to Lyn and their lovely children, grandkids and family.
