  2. Our condolences to the Family. I have fond memories of Gord. He introduced me to spec fishing in River Valley; playing baseball between our families and friends behind our houses; among other events. His dedication to community service as our midget hockey team manager, with countless hours of his time, between bingo fundraisers, and organizing the team, I have grown to appreciate more in looking back as an adult. In some ways it inspired me to be involved in sports and community events. He was a great mentor, neighbour, and friend. RIP Gord.
