Gordon had a very rewarding career in the telecommunications industry, first in the United Kingdom then, coming to Canada in 1963 to work in the Canadian Arctic on radar installations. He last worked for Teleglobe Canada, Canada’s overseas telecommunications carrier. Throughout his career he was called upon by many as a result of his vast and diversified experience. In his retirement, he enjoyed spending time with family, volunteering and continuing to explore his passion for math, science and, of course, cribbage.
