I am so sorry to hear of Gord’s passing. When he and Sandra came in to Chop, everyone was always so excited to see them and catch up on their recent adventures and see pictures of their sweet pup. Such wonderful people!

I’ll have a smoked ribeye and Caesar waiting for you!! Gord will truly be missed by many. Sorry for your loss.

My husband and I did work with Gord. My husband, Eric and Gord became friend and Eric would lean on Gord for support. Gord was a wonderful friend. He spoke lovingly of his sons and wife. He made a beautiful, quality product in a time of rampant bad-quality.
God bless you and your family Gord and thank you for your friendship.
Our Condolences to his loved ones, you were loved by him.
-Eric and Rebecca Hebert
PS Eric misses you!

John and I were celebrating Gords life as we shared memories years ago when we were neighbors at Sandy Beach. We had such great times.. Gord would want us all to celebrate his life through fun memories.. support and love. All those gifts he shared with every person he touched. Another earth angel in heaven ..

Gord…I am so sorry the world was not what you needed it to be. Rest in peace.


Love you lots Uncle Gordie, I am extremely saddened to see you go, I’m just glad we got to spend one last holiday together before you hopped on that Harley to the skies and through those pearly white gates.
Please give granny and grandpa a big hug for me.


Jennifer Clyne

So glad to have met you. In the 3 years we worked together through NOV I always enjoyed dealing with you and when you would visit. You were always genuine and kind to me from day one. May you rest peacefully, wherever you are.
