Gord Duplessis

Gord Duplessis passed peacefully at his home while surrounded by family on Tuesday November 10 , 2020. Son of the late Francis and Emma Duplessis. Husband of Sarah (nee Lesperance) for over 64 years.  Father of Gordon Jr. (Edith), Darlene (Allan Burk), Dale (Penny) and Shirley Anne (Tom Tinning).

Gord is brother to Alice and Jim Recker, Beatrice and William Hayes, Shirley Ann and Ken Mailloux. He will be deeply missed by his dog Vanah White. Gord enjoyed his 59 Edsel, socializing at car shows, teasing his sister Beatrice about her Toronto Maple Leafs.  He will be forever remembered for his skill of buying and selling cars and helping the many people he met through his business Gord’s Towing. Gord had a unique sense of humour and loved to tease and assign “pet names” for everyone in the family. He also greatly treasured his family time, pig roasts and Wheel of Fortune with Sarah. Gord was most proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren but was especially proud of his wife Sarah and loved the way she sang the “French Song”. A big thanks to Marie Gillings for his favorite sugar cookies. Gord’s family will be remembering him privately. Memorial donations may be directed to the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals.

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same

It broke our hearts to lose you

The day he called your name

You left us beautiful memories

Your love is still our guide

And though we can not see you

You are always by our side.

I remember you telling me, ” You’re going to have to do it anyways, so you might just as well do it with a smile. ” Many tears shed over the last couple of weeks….and still today….and between the tears many smiles when thinking of you. It’s been hard Dad, hard for us, but harder for you. Promises will be kept…we will take care of Mom….You raised a FAMILY….No one left out and no-one left behind. Thank-you for all of my life lessons….you sure filled my tool box with all kinds of tools to rely on when the going gets tough, Teaching me to know I am no better than anyone else, and certainly not less than anyone else. You taught me to be kind, to be humble and to give without expectation , to be honest and sincere and mostly that a good sense of humor will get you through the toughest of times.Thank-you for my amazing childhood the experience of living in a big city ( Oakville ) and a small town ( Orangeville-Shelburne ) Everything, all of me, who I am, has a lot to do with you…your morals and values you instilled in us. On Nov 9th, you said you were going on a road trip….to Heaven….safe travel Dad, so many there are anxiously awaiting your arrival…we’ll all catch of with you later. OX <3 FOREVER AND ALWAYS.
