Gordon was a faithful member of the Session of St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church since 1990 and served as the church treasurer for over 15 years.  He was also on the Board of the Old Protestant Burying Ground in Charlottetown.  Gordon was very committed to his family; his wife, children and granddaughters were the pride and joy of his life and his legacy will continue to live through them.
