I started my apprenticeship at Aurora Hydro back in 1988. Gord or Uncle Gord as we called him was a driving force behind Aurora Hydro and working with him was always enjoyable. He made a great supervisor and a good friend. One of the many thing you could always count on with Gord was if you were in trouble for something he would ream you out for it but never was brought up again. I really respected Gord and gained even more respect for him after he was forced to retire, he decided to run for the Hydro Commission and run he did. Our Manager of the time was sweating blood that Gord or Norm Weller might get in and he unofficially encouraged us not to vote for him. Not me I voted for him and he got in. And I remember him today still smiling about the first commission meeting and how his former boss was pretty much wetting his pants as he did have something to do with forcing Gord to retire. But Gord with his usual tack and grace didn't bear down too hard on him. And after Powerstream purchased Aurora I still remember coming by his house with a letter that showed his former boss getting fired from Powerstream for inappropriate behavior, another smile on his face. I always liked to work for Gord and will miss him
