Obituary of Gordon Alexander Reid
REID, Gordon Alexander passed away peacefully at Norview Lodge, Simcoe on Friday, May 1, 2020 in his 88th year. Dearly loved husband of Dora. Cherished father and father-in-law of Rob and Laura Reid, Elizabeth and Richard Goldman, and David and Debbie Reid. Proud and loving grandfather of Adam, Ben, Alexandra, Reid, Alexander and Piper. Will be lovingly remembered by his brother Alastair and his wife Heather. Predeceased by his sister Elizabeth von Steinner. Gord was a lifelong Doverite, a longtime employee and Sales Manager at Thomas A. Ivey & Sons, and gave countless hours to the community and numerous local organizations. He was a former Port Dover Lions Club member, a Mason of Erie Lodge, A.F. & A.M. #149, Port Dover, a volunteer for Senior Support Services and an Elder and very proud member of Knox Presbyterian Church and Choir. Gord was also a member of the Port Dover Town Council in the 1970s. Gord will be sadly missed by all who knew him, remembered for his great sense of humour, his many stories and songs, and for the great community member he was. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, a private family visitation was held, with his grandson, Ben playing the bagpipes one last time for his Grandpa. A graveside service will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank all of the caring staff at Norview Lodge, Reverend Pamela Hogewoning for her beautifully prepared prayer, and Thompson Waters Funeral Home in Port Dover for making all arrangements. For those wishing, donations to Knox Presbyterian Church would be greatly appreciated. On-line donations and or condolences can be made at www.thompsonwatersfuneralhome.ca.
