It is with sad hearts and cherished memories that we announce the passing of Gordon Stephen Upper after a courageous 11/2 year battle with cancer. Gord passed away in Grimsby, Ontario, on November 6, 2009 in his 61st year with his family at his side. By the grace of God, may we be together again.
Gordon will be dearly missed by his family; wife Sandra, son Ben, daughter Jessica of Grimsby, father Ivan (Patricia) of Vernon, mother Doris of Victoria, brother Brian (Jane) of Armstrong as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Gord has a wide circle of friends who were drawn to his generosity, sense of humour, love of the outdoors and his compassionate nature. A memorial was held on the 12th of November in Grimsby, Ontario.
