One of her favorite expressions was "There's no such word as can't."

Gordon was a retired CN employee who worked as a skilled carpenter at the Valley Car Shop, St. John's until his retirement in 1978. Even after his retirement he found much joy with many woodworking projects - carpentry work for friends and family - crafting kitchen cupboards and making glider rockers. He was a honest, hard-worker, gentle and generous man who was sustained by his faith in God, and his deep love of family. He was a humble man who never sought the limelight, but was cherished by all who knew him. Everyone will have their own memories of the times they shared with him. His presence will be greatly missed - especially his warm friendly chuckle and his great love of music.Resting at Holloway's Funeral Home, Whitbourne.
