Dear Madine and family,

I saw the notice on the Acadia Alumni website and I was deeply saddened; I cannot think of any other description. I had know Gord at Acadia during our undergraduate years and had lost touch with him. He and I among others, spent some wonderful time together between classes. I remember him fondly and I recall we even played bridge, a bit. God Bless you all and remember the enjoyable times together.

Madine Devon and Ben
My sincere condolences on your loss of a wonderful person When I first met Gordon it was at Friday afternoon Law School curling at CFB HALIFAX in 1976 where his wit warm personality and perhaps a small bit of confidence shone through in competition but really it was just fun Encountered him during our legal careers not frequently as he was an able litigator unlike myself However when my children enrolled in HGS with my daughter in Ben’s class it became obvious to me how proud dedicated and supporting parent Gordon was Always ready to help he and Ben were at the school first thing in the morning after Hurricane Juan and he really encouraged us with his positivity as he said “Although it looks like the water is coming through the open roof It really isn’t that bad !!!””and he was right as the building was ultimately rescued and Ben was performing magic demonstrations again in no time
I am truly sorry for you losing him too early as you have and I hope as time passes you can remember the funny positive encouragement that he always provided

I was devastated to read of Gordons passing
He was a great positive man with a wonderful smile and great whit
We had some wonderful conversations at Le Bistro where I had the privilege of spending time with him and his fabulous family
I feel like I watched the kids grow up into amazing people he was so proud of
He and Madine always seem to be enjoying themselves and grab life full on
I will think of him often especially on Christmas Eve as it was usually a family thing to come and visit my bistro
All my Love to Madine ,Ben and Devon

Dear Madine and family,
How shocked and saddened I am to hear of Gordon’s passing. How grateful I am for the many years of happiness and love you shared. My deepest condolences to the entire family. Gordon was just a terrific man. I remember so many happy times spent in the “law school days” especially the Friday beer and Tomaso pizza nights. It has been some years since I have seen you both but you have stayed in my heart since our last reunion with the Grahams. Sending you, your family, David and Susan and family my deepest sympathy and prayers for the days ahead.

Although it’s been sometime since we last spent time together, I have many vivid, fond memories of our business and social relationship. I was a Claim Manager with a National Property & Casualty Company and Gordon looked after our Defence work. Golf, long lunches at Fat Franks, hundreds of hours debating the pros and cons of just about everything you can imagine. I am pleased we managed to make contact recently and bridge the passage of time. My deepest condolences to his immediate family, all those who loved him and his many friends.

To Gordon’s family: I am so shocked and saddened to hear this news. Gordon was always a part of the landscape of my life, starting at KCA and on to Acadia, then to Dalhousie Law School and the practise of law. Medina, I think even of the little house on Almon Street! It is hard now to imagine that a second mortgage with an assumable interest rate of 18 percent could be a selling feature! Those were the times! Gordon had such a kind and gentle heart; it meant he was both respected and liked by all who had the privilege to know him. David and I will see you when these difficult Covid days have passed. Please accept our deepest condolences.

Medina and family,

I was very sorry to hear of Gordon's passing. Gordon interviewed me prior to my beginning my articles at Boyne, Jones Murrant & Young . I hate to think how many years ago that was. He was, as described, a charismatic force. It was obvious he loved being a lawyer and especially being in a courtroom. He and you were good to me as a young lawyer and I was and am grateful to both of you for that.

So sorry to hear of Gordon's passing.I knew him at Radio Acadia.I was the executive producer of Maple Leaf Music we put on the AVR Network. Gordon was the voice we use in our intro and outro, What a voice it was. I am very glad to say that I knew Gordon.

Medina and family, both Ann and I are deeply saddened by the news of Gordon's passing. We have spent much of the day since Elizabeth's call, reminiscing about the days Gordon, Barry and I shared a flat, while Gordon attended law school. I have vivid memories of the nightly, hours-long, long-distance calls to a certain lady attending university in Ontario. And the resulting phone bills in my name :)

I first met Gordon in 1965. We played on the same little league baseball team. While our lives have taken us on different paths, I nonetheless have tremendous admiration for what he accomplished in his legal career and life in general. Paramount to his time with us, is the love and devotion to all of you.

Sincerest condolences to Medina, Devon and Ben. Our thoughts are with you.

Rick and Ann
