I send you my condolences Rodena and children.  There is a lot of history there and an empty place in the heart.  Oh how there are so many memories.  I certainly enjoyed knowing Gordon and the family around the ski lodge.

As a young lad of 15, Gordon was with me and Doug Jackson when I caught my first swordfish of 720 pounds. That same fish which was so heavy broke its line as we were bringing it aboard and fell on me and split my head open. Gordon was there to keep me calm the whole way back to shore. That sword still hangs on my wall today. I feel fortunate to have known such a kind and generous man that Gordon was. May his spirit fly high over the beautiful highlands that he loved so much. RIP Gordon you will never be forgotten.  My deepest condolences to all the family and friends that have been touched by Gordon's passing.😇😢

Dear Rhodena and Family, We have just learned of Gordon's passing. No words can describe how deeply shocked and saddened we are of hearing this news. Gordon has been that smiling face, that sincere and warm human being, always ready to lend a hand and bring about your laugh or smile, because of his own infectious smile. Even his anti-Liberal comments were enjoyable! Gordon truly loved people- particularly the people of Ingonish - and they loved him back. What a great loss his passing means to our community here North of Smokey! Please accept our deepest sympathy as we write this note with heavy hearts.

Joan and I will never forget Gordons visits to Pictou often with his entourage of fishermen friends. He always brought a zest for life , a sense of humor and kindness that made those days very special. We will always treasure those memories and having known such a fine fellow. Our deepest condolences.

I remember Gordon as one of the gang hanging out under Bob’s wharf when we were children and again as a successful fisherman and respected member of the community later in life. A life well lived and well loved.

Was their a finer man? I have not met him yet. My memories are speckled with wonderful stories. Gordon was a port of safe harbour. Always accommodating, quick to smile or wink. Stories and laughter were steps away.
Please know that I, and my four children, feel the loss. Rhodena, your loss is immeasurable. I will come see you when the time is right.
Sending love and support.

I first met Gordon as my boss at the Ski Hill in '77. The best boss I ever had. Then as a true and dependable friend. Always solid wisdom with humour or a story, together with the best hospitality. We had some good times along the way. We are better people for knowing Gordon. Rhodena, we send our condolences and love to you and your wonderful family.

Sincerely, Jim and Janice Fennell

There are no words to adequately describe what Gordon meant to his many friends. Our two years of living in Ingonish were made so enjoyable because of our friendship with Gordon and Rhodena.  Even though we didn’t see a lot of each other these past number of years, that friendship never faded.  We loved you both then and do so now.  RIP dear Gordon and to Rhodena, Linda, Shauna, David and your three great grandkids we send our sincere sympathies.

So sorry to hear about Gordon, my condolences to the family.  He was a good childhood friend, before we moved away, and on my 'all too seldom' visits back home meeting up with Gordon for a good chinwag was always a highlight of the trip.  RIP my old friend.
