Gord was the proverbial "nice guy". The first thing that gave him away was his warm, ready smile which was followed by his kindly manner and actions. It's clear that he was loved as much as he loved everyone else. My sincere condolences to his family. May we all keep his memory dear.

I was blessed to have met Gord through a project that we were working on. The moment I met Gord I knew that he was a very special person. He had this amazing positivity about him, he always spoke proudly of his family and was such a good man.
Gord was taken too soon from us.

I will truly miss Gord and I cannot imagine not seeing his smiling face in the office.
Please accept my deepest condolences, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

Gord – Thank you for stepping into my life, I feel so lucky to have known such a good hearted person. I will truly miss you. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Trish, Aaron, Alicia and family.
I can’t imagine how grief stricken you are losing such a wonderful husband, dad, son, uncle and friend. Gord and I met many years ago as we worked together at State Farm and then transitioned to Desjardins. We also spent many weekends hanging out at the arena while our boys played hockey against each other. Whether it be at work or at the arena, Gord always had a smile on his face and was always willing to help. He was immensely proud of his family and he never missed a moment to share how Trish and the kids were doing. Gord was truly one in a million and will be greatly missed!
Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Karen, Ron, Eric, Stephanie and Allyson Forrest

My deepest condolences to the Thompson family. I am sadden to hear about the passing of Gord. I worked with Gord in the DP department at Brimley Road. Gord was the daily entertainment inside the computer room. He was outgoing, friendly and always cracking a joke to make everyone laugh. Gord was friendly to everyone and made every new employee feel welcomed. You will be missed. May your soul Rest In Peace.

Gord you were such a great person to work with and everyone loved working with you. I'll never forget our replacement services days, we had a dream team. You'll be so missed, you always spoke of your family and you could feel the love you had as a happy family man. So sorry for the loss of Gord to an amazing family.

Gord was such an amazing and special person. The second I met Gord I knew he was absolutely one of a kind! He was the person who could put a smile on anyone’s face and could make anyone laugh. He was kind, hilarious, caring and such a wonderful father/husband.

There will be so many memories of Gord I will cherish. Every time I came to Courtice I knew part of my visit itinerary would be lunch at the Courtyard (or as I like to call it, GORDyard) with Gord & Trish! Gord always took special interest in peoples lives, remembering small details and being genuinely interested in how you are.

My favourite memory with Gord was probably one of the most proud days of his life. The day Alicia & Jeremy got married. Gord thought it would SO fun to high five once I left the alter. Of course you can’t say no to having fun with Gord! Picture attached :) I’ll never forget that.

I will miss Gord’s laugh, I will miss all his hilarious comments on my FaceBook posts, I will miss getting FaceBook messages from him asking how his “little leashy-weashy” was doing at University.

Gord lit up the most when he spoke about Alicia and Aaron. I see him in both of them so much. They share his kindness, humour and selflessness. And he was so proud!

He was simply the best and I’m grateful to have known him. Rest In Peace, Gord. You’re extremely missed and will always be in our hearts. Xo

Gord knows a guy..
Gord was very well connected when it came to sourcing any purchase partially because he had developed these contacts while Insurance adjusting but also because he made connections wherever he went. Our son Jeremy had asked for Gord and Trish’s permission to marry Alicia. It was time to buy the ring. Gord – knew exactly where to go. We were a strange trio – Jeremy - the young man who was buying the ring, Me – the father who thought he knew diamonds and Gord – the father-in-law to be who had the diamond connection. This strange trio stepped into Vasco jewelers and delicately stepped around each other – while the selection process took place. Finally when Jeremy had honed in on the special stone and was given the price – Gord said, “C’mon you can do better than that” to the jeweler who in fact did.
Gord, we will miss your friendly easy going personality, your deep love for your family and warm welcome and treatment of friends. Bruce and Cathy Zavitz

My deepest condolences to Gord's family and loved ones. Gord always smiled, always said hello and was such a blessing to know. He was someone I always looked forward to bumping into at work, even for our quick catch up chats. I am sure this doesn't come as a surprise, but it's a testament to who he was and the impact he had on people's lives. He is truly missed.
