He was a long serving elder at St. Giles Presbyterian Church as well as worked at the church as a custodian. Gordon loved camping, horseshoes, and golfing with his grandchildren.

Not a day will pass by Dad, that you won’t cross our minds. Not all of you departed, when you left our earth behind. For in our hearts there is a place that only you can hold, filled with loving memories far more precious than gold. Dad, we know you can hear us, so please know this is true, everything we are today is all because of you.
