July 29, 1926 – Aug 20, 2016
Passed away peacefully in his sleep, at home, surrounded by his grown children, just a few weeks after his 90th birthday. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Bert, whom he now joins to live with in eternity.
Born and raised in Toronto, he attended Forest Hill High School and enrolled in the University of Toronto after the war. He and Bert were married in 1950, and in 1955 moved to Meaford to manage Paul’s Hotel. Gord loved his adopted home town of Meaford, and was proud and humbled to eventually become its longest serving Mayor.
