Suddenly on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at St. Joseph's Hospital, Toronto due to complications of surgery. Gordon, beloved husband of the late Veronica (Vonnie) for 57 years. Caring father of Cathy (David Scott) and Gordie (Debbie). Loved poppy of Christopher and Tyler Scott and Alycia and Melyssa Hart. Gordon was born in Bell Island, Newfoundland to parents Gordon and Alma (Pynn). He had seven brothers Gerald, Fred, John, Lloyd, Bob, Allen and Donald. He also had five sisters Lillian Anthony, Shirley Crane, Ruby Bickford, Dora Walters and Debbie Murphy. Will be missed terribly by his brother-in-law Kevin Brown and his sister-in-laws Mary McLean (Bill), Marjorie English (Gerry) and Joan McLean (Don). He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews.
Dad was a very independent, happy, lovable man. He was happiest when he was spending time with his family and friends. He took this opportunity to tell stories about his life which would most likely end up with lots of laughter. Dad loved going out for his daily walks, this is something he continued to do right up until the day of his surgery. He enjoyed going to the casino. He loved cooking and providing amazing meals for his family.
Dad courageously chose to have surgery in the hopes of extending his life.
Thank you to Dr. Farragos and his wonderful staff for being very supportive to dad.
Friends and family are invited to dad's Celebration Of Life at Jones Funeral Home, 11582 Trafalgar Road, Georgetown on Saturday, November 30, 2019 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to CAShh (Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills) or a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
Dad, you may not be with us anymore, but our love for you will never die. Now you're with mom. We miss you both.
