SEDGWICK, The Honourable Mr. Justice G. Gordon, Q.C. - Died peacefully at the Wellesley Central Place, Toronto on September 10, 2017.
Born in Kingston, Ontario on July 27, 1934, Gordon was predeceased by his parents Samuel George and Minnie Ellen (Ferguson) and his younger sister Anita Jean Albrecht.
He is survived by his wife Libby Burnham CM, QC, DCL, three kids John (Leigh-Ann McGowan), Anne and Jamie (Alice Cohen) and his much adored grandson Sam (and Sam's sibling, coming soon). He will also be missed by the countless others lucky enough to have encountered his gentle nature, keen intellect and playful sense of humour.
In his final days, his mind and body failing him as he battled dementia, Gordon never stopped greeting everyone he met with the warm, kind and comforting smile so familiar to anyone who knew him.
He was a wonderful husband and father and the love he had for his family was limitless and unconditional. The feeling is mutual, Dad. We love you.
Thank you for sharing your incredible journey with us.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, September 18th at 2 p.m. at YORKMINSTER PARK BAPTIST CHURCH, 1585 Yonge St. (at Heath St. E.), Toronto.
If you wish to honour Gordon's life with a donation, his family would appreciate that it be made to the Salvation Army or the Boys and Girls Club of Kingston.
