Gordon William Alexander

Predeceased by his wife Jocelyne Madore (1945-1989). Survived by his sons Norman (Carole) and James (Vicki); grandsons Shayne, Jaiden and Zachary; wife Charmaine Stephens and her family - Kate, Sonya, Jake and Tessa; sister Carol Cameron and niece Donna Cameron (Sylvain); and many relatives of whom he was very fond.

During his ordeal, he was greatly comforted by his long-time friend Richard Carufel.

Gordon lived a full family life for 24 years with Jocelyne and his sons; he enjoyed his work mainly due to the team spirit and support of his colleagues; and in retirement he took on many new challenges. His compassion defined him - he lived his life by helping others in whatever way needed.

With heartfelt gratitude, we thank the staff and Dr Abdulkarim of the Cedars Cancer Centre, and the staff and Dr Shieh of the Montreal Chest Institute. Incredible support and care was provided by the CLSC du Lac-Saint-Louis, NOVA and the West Island Palliative Care residence.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Palliative Care residence (donations@wipcr.ca) or NOVA (www.novawi.org).

He was “simply the best”.
