He will be greatly missed by all his 'family' in Summer Cove.

Gordie leaves behind his loving wife Julie (Wallingham); sons Mark (Sherida), Bruce (Sandy); daughter Paula (Billy Blackburn), stepdaughter Jill (Adam Connors); grandsons Brett and Mitchell, step-grandson Kingston, and great-grandson Grayson.

Dear family of Gordie, our sincere condolences for your loss. Gordie was a friend of our Dad, Jim Hardiman & family as they worked on the waterfront together for many years. We visited Gordie occasionally and we have memories of Christmas morning visits.
A lovely man is truly a gem, and that was Gordie.
