Dear Michael and Rosemary and family.
A great guy who made a significant impact on the commercial real estate business, particularly in the retail sector where he was instrumental in developing the Food Court concept. He was an honourable and generous man eager to help others. RIP Gord.
My late wife Jennifer Lynch Q.C. and I became friends of Gordon and Marjorie at The Ritz Carlton Southbeach ,lunch and drinks in the lounge.Gordon and I continued our Talks with each other.Gordon gave to me advice .I have the book of jokes his friend George C. Stewart collected and his family published,with a handwritten note from Gordon.The jokes helped temper my mourning my Jennifer.
I sat at Gordon's table at a banquet of the Who's Who at the then Civilization Museum,Next to only the Aspers
How he was devoted to His Marjorie.
Gordon was a wonderful gentleman, he was a joy and brilliant to work with and always sensitive and kind to all he met. A wonderful and full life for a very special person. One of the most respected individuals globally for his understanding and brilliant leadership in retail.
Sue and Doug,
I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing...what a wonderful man! It sounds like he lived an active life to the end, a great example for us all.
I hope that you two are still enjoying skiing to the fullest. I have moved to snowshoeing in winter.
Condolences, and sending hugs to both of you.
