Johnson GordonJOHNSON, Gordon Glenn  -

May 16, 1928 - February 5, 2024


Glenn passed away peacefully, at age 95, surrounded by his family.


He leaves his loving wife of 72 years, Joan; sons, Christopher (Helen), Thomas (Linna) and Andrew; daughters, Holly, Karen and Shelley (Doug); brother, Curtis (Peggy); Joan's sister, Gael Webster (Bill); six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and numerous nephews and nieces.


He was predeceased by brothers, Russell and Raymond; and sisters, Ines, Agnes, Joyce and Helen.


Glenn was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and spent his early years in Cochrane, Ontario.


He was 70 years a Mason and was a member of the Scottish Rite and Mocha Temple. He was a proud Rotarian for almost 50 years where he was awarded the distinguished Paul Harris Fellowship Award. He exemplified the ideals of Rotary in all aspects of his life: acting with the highest ethical standards and service to community.


His leadership skills made him an obvious choice to lead and expand the London Community Foundation, and to establish and Chair the Grand Bend Area Health Services Foundation to build a multi-disciplinary healthcare facility, both with ambitious fundraising goals which were quickly exceeded.


For his leadership and commitment, he was recognized as Grand Bend Community Leader of the Decade.


Throughout his life he also devoted continuous service and leadership to his church. In recognition of his lifetime of service to others and to community, he was awarded the prestigious Governor General's Sovereign's Medal for Volunteering.


A celebration of Glenn's life will be held at Elmwood Avenue Presbyterian Church, 111 Elmwood Avenue East, London, on February 16th. Visitation at 1 p.m. and celebration of life at 2 p.m. following a Masonic Service under the auspices of Tuscan Lodge No. 195 A.F. & A.M.


Donations to Elmwood Avenue Presbyterian Church or the London Community Foundation, in lieu of flowers.
