GordonAlbertIt is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Gordon in the twilight hours of April 9, 2013, peacefully in his sleep with his family at his side.  Beloved husband of 56 years to Gertie and much loved father and father-in-law to David and Gillian, Mark and Sheila, and Fiona and Spencer.  Cherished grandfather of Conor, Devin, Caitlyn and Jessica.  Born in Co. Cavan, Ireland he spent his youth in Dublin as a student of Mountjoy School before embarking on a career in lumber sales and marrying Gertie, eventually setting sail for Canada and a career in banking, in both Toronto and Calgary.  In later years Albert joined with Gertie in pursuing their own business as proprietors of Allen’s Hardware in Cobourg, Ontario prior to their eventual retirement and his pursuit of new interests, which included developing a talent for watercolour painting.  Special thanks to all his friends for their prayers.  A memorial service will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, (200 King St. West, Cobourg) on Wednesday April 17, 2013 at 11 a.m.   In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church or the Canadian HHT Foundation (HHTCanada.com) would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to MacCoubrey Funeral Home. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.
