    I taught Mathematics at Almaguin Highlands Secondary School in Sundridge from 1975 to 1992. Gord was the head of the Technical Department for many of those years before he headed to London. He was a respected member of the staff and someone who I(we) could always count on for sage advice. I also taught his son John (13621} who I had the pleasure of meeting at a reunion some 10+ years ago.
    John please know I am thinking of you and my thoughts and prayers are with you and all of Gord’s family.
