Obituary

Obituary for James Albert Gordon

James Albert Ernest Gordon

On November 12, 2019 at 10:20PM, Jimmy G left his legacy behind and moved on to his next adventure. Surrounded by his family, he peacefully exited our world.

Known famously as Jimmy G and passionately as Gramps, he will be forever be remembered for his comical demeanour. Never short of a laugh... To know him, was to love him.

A fond memory that many have experienced, was him sitting in his glider rocker, sheepishly opening his drawer full of his loving wife's homemade "cookies". His hair was often 'gone awry', but that didn't matter, it was usually covered by his much loved Tilley Hat, that secretly stowed $200.00 in the zipped pocket inside the hat, or his ball cap with the fake hair.

He was an amazing man who will be deeply missed by his four children, David, Debbie (Glenn), Brooke (Ron) and Penny (Steve), as well as his grandchildren Wesley (Christina), Mitchell (Natasha), Lindsey (Connor), Christopher (Sol), Jake, Chloe (Dylan) and Dallas and a great grand daughter Cali. He was forever surrounded by his family.

Their home was never empty-always had family popping by to watch the game or have a beer. His children never really moved out- literally moved just around the corner.

He lived an exciting canoeing and camping life with his kids and his grandchildren. He camped and hiked right into his 70's, often finding his grandkids having a hard time keeping up with him.

Cuba was a place he loved to go to spend some winter escape, where Jimmy G also left his footprint. Wherever he went, he left many memories. At a family function, such as a wedding, he never missed speaking to every single table. His wisdom and humour carries on through his children and grandchildren.

He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Donna, of 58 years and by anyone whose life he touched. There are givers and takers in this life, he was definitely a giver. "Don't forget to giv'er"!

To all who knew and loved him, we welcome you to celebrate his life. November 23, 2019 (1-4PM) at Canadian Corps Association 142 Athol Street East Oshawa.

In lieu of flowers, donations to THE DENISE HOUSE, in Oshawa would be appreciated.
