Gordy graced us with his presence over the many years he refereed our hockey games. He not only kept us big kids in line but shared his knowledge, humour (many boring jokes too), and of course his loyal friendship. I will remember most his kindness and countless stories. Sincere condolences to the whole family and to his daughters which he often dragged to our games as score keepers.
Fond memories will be with us forever Gord!

On behalf of all the "boys" who had the pleasure of knowing Gordie through our old-timer hockey games, our deepest sympathies to his wife Mireille, his girls and his extended family. Gordie was definitely a memorable man and we have so many cherished memories of the wonderful sports stories and knowledge he would impart on us all. May you continue to live in his spirit and keep his memory alive so the world can continue to be a better place. R.I.P Gordie

Our deepest sympathy to Mireille, Lisa, Karen, Susie, & family for your loss. Gordie was a wonderful and vivacious family man. I remember many family gatherings in Montreal and Barre, VT. He lit up any room that he entered. He told wonderful stories and was an amazing musician. Gordie and his family welcomed us into their loving home last year and served us an amazing Lebanese feast fit for a King and a Queen! A memorable day that I will always hold near and dear to my heart! Many of us know all too well the indescribable sadness involved in losing a loved one . Please accept our sincerest sympathy during this difficult time! Gordie is now resting in peace with all our amazing family members and friends, playing his music, and entertaining all of our beloved in heaven, where we will all one day, meet again!!!

Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with his entire family and friends. He will certainly be missed by many. As far as could remember as a very young child I was always mesmerized by watching Gordy entertain our family and friends for decades, and his musical talent came natural to him, but his musical talent was second to his bubbly, warm and loving personality. RIP my dear cousin.

So sad to hear about Gordie, my friend and first cousin. I've known Gordie for 65 years. He was a good person, a good showman. He loved the music as much as he loved playing it. He came from a long line of talent. He loved life and tried to live it to the fullest. He will definitely be missed by me and everyone who knew him.

Much love to you all. Gordon was a wonderful man, I have such a fondness for him. Even though I didn't see him often, I have great memories of how gracious and generous he was. His door was always open whenever we made a trip to Montreal. He was always there with a hug hello, an invite to stay for dinner, and jokes to make us laugh. A very giving, loving man. I will never forget him. Cheryl Pitt and Family.

My deepest condolences on Uncle Gordie's departure. I have such fond memories of him from when I was young in Sunday School. He was always there and always teasing us in his loving way. It felt like he was everyone's Uncle. I've no doubt that there will be a huge void and I pray that God give you all strength as you learn to live your lives in a very new way. May he rest in peace.
