It is with great sorrow, we the Gordon family, wish to announce the passing of our wonderful son, brother and friend to many, Gary Lawrence Gordon, of St. Thomas, on April 5th, 2020 at the age of 56. Beloved son to Robert Gordon and Aili (Sinisalo) Gordon, of Tillsonburg. Born in Toronto, Gary will be dearly missed by his brothers Grant Gordon, of Tillsonburg; Dean and Tracey Gordon, of London; cousins Brent, Mark, Leslie and families and by friends from the Markham area and Chester Street, in St. Thomas. Gary was kindhearted person with a strong disposition, he stood up for others and he did not tolerate bullies. Gary was a unique individual who tried his hardest to overcome all the challenges that life gives out, wanting to be understood and respected for his complex ideas. He enjoyed several hobbies such as sketching, music and playing his Yamaha guitar, hockey, baseball and he was proud to be a ‘rock hound.’ Gifted in kung fu and the martial arts, Gary’s strong will to learn more led him to an opportunity to concentrate on the art of Wing Chun.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, a private family funeral service has taken place in the Maurice J. Verhoeve Funeral Homes- Burial and Cremation Services Inc. Chapel, 262 Broadway Street, Tillsonburg by Life Celebrant Specialists Mike and Tina Dias. Cremation followed, with later interment in the Tillsonburg Cemetery.
