On one of Gordon’s travel adventures, he met Wendy Louise Wannell crossing the Indian Ocean in 1967.
They eventually reunited and married in Vancouver, B.C. in 1968.
Before settling down in Montreal, Quebec, Wendy and Gordon were always gallivanting somewhere around the world.
Gordon was a wonderfully devoted father to his 3 children David, Andrew, and their very special daughter, Sara.
He was immensely proud of his children and leaves nothing but beautiful memories.
Gordon was always working hard but always found time for Wendy and the children.
We will miss him every day and especially the long walks along the canal.
Gordon spent 35 years with Seagrams, finishing his career there, where he was well known and admired.
Our beloved Gordon, you will always be forever in our hearts.
A Special thanks to our neighbours and the wonderful doctors and nurses at McGill University College Hospital who provided invaluable care to Gordon and our family.
Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life for family and friends will be announced later this year.
