Special brother-in-law to Gordon and Nancy Smith of Yuma, Arizona. Special uncle to Nancy (Paul) of Toronto and many other nieces and nephews. Gord will be sadly missed by his fishing and hunting buddies, his many neighbours and also by his son-in-law Dan. Gord was born in Swindon, England and came to Canada when he was one year old. He was a well-known athlete in his younger days and worked for 32 years at Bell Grove and Countryside arenas. He worked his dream job of maintaining the arenas and driving the Zamboni. Gord was very well known and respected in the sporting community. “Everyone knew and loved Gord.” He will be greatly missed by his four legged companion, Avry. Special thanks to the 4North staff at Health Sciences North. At Gord’s request there will be no visitation or service.
