Gordon, Jason

Posted by on August 8, 2015

Gordon JasonJason Passed away peacefully at the age of 23 years, at home in the arms of his family, on Thursday August 6, 2015, after a courageous 3 year battle with cancer.

Throughout his tough journey, Jason showed the true spirit of a fighter! Doing whatever he needed to do to try to conquer this disease that was trying so hard to knock him down! He succeeded at first, after enduring months of chemotherapy, radiation and three major surgeries, he was declared cancer free! This was only to last for eight months! The cancer came back and he once again fought for his life! This time however, the cancer proved to be too much! He was told there was no longer anything more that could be done! It was a hard pill to swallow at first, but Jason, who always lived life to the fullest, decided he would go out doing what he wanted to do, for as long as he could! The generosity of total strangers, came out and helped him cross off many things on his bucket list! One of the things on Jason’s list, was to drive an expensive sports car! When Richie Hughes, owner of Toronto based VIP Exotic Car Rentals, heard about his wish through friends, he arranged for Jason and his brother Jacob, to have a $300,000 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder for the day! “Go have fun!” was all that was required! He also got to be a high rolling black jack player at Casino Niagara, with a VIP table that normally needs $100 a hand. He and his friends got to play for $5.00 a hand. In June, Alex Vincenz of The Jagermeister Company arranged a stretch S.U.V. limo to pick Jason, Jacob and some friends up for a full day of fun at the Venice Beach party in Toronto. Alex was so touched by Jason’s courage and determination. They remained good friends afterward. Just a few weeks ago, Jason got to see the Tim McGraw concert in Toronto. Jason’s family cannot find the words to express the gratitude they have to everyone who helped Jason live out his bucket list the last 3 months of his life! It gives a bit of light on a horrible situation, to know that Jason got to do so many things that made him happy!

At the end, when the cancer became too much, and he knew he was losing the battle, Jason chose to go with dignity in the comfort and surroundings of his home and family.

Jason will be lovingly remembered by his father Tony Gordon and fiancée Donna Hall, her daughter Christine Martin, his mother Lynn Farquhar and her partner Lisa Robitaille, her son Sam Desroches, Jason’s twin brother Jacob and his sister Madison. His grandparents Roy and Barb Farquhar. His uncles and aunts Mark Farquhar, Linda Tabak (Steve) Tom Bennett, Pat Kozak (Zolton) Kathy Byrne (John). Predeceased by his brother Matthew and Jeremy Gordon, Grandparents Elmer and Madeline Gordon, and Uncle Dennis Bennett. Jason will be remembered by his cousins and the many friends who will never forget his energy, charisma and spark for life. Jason lived more in the 23 years on earth, then many of us could ever live in a lifetime. He will be missed and loved always.

A Celebration of Jason’s life will be held on Thursday August 13, 2015 at Ferndale Banquet Hall, Barrie from 4-8pm.

Jason wished that donations be made in his memory to Princess Margaret Hospital, specifically to “helping with cost for medication”. 1-866-244-6560 **More information to come**

MantovanMantovan, Laura
On July 30, 2015 at the age of 53, Laura Maria Teresa Mantovan (nee Darisi) passed away peacefully at The Hospice of Windsor. She was surrounded by her loving family. The first daughter of Alfredo and Milena Darisi, Laura was born in Sault Ste. Marie on November 23, 1961. She grew up in Sarnia with her siblings Moreno, Jimmy, Brenda and Paul and always reminisced about her wonderful childhood. In 1978, Laura moved to Windsor for hairdressing school, shortly thereafter, meeting the love of her life, soulmate and husband of 32 years Marco Mantovan. Together they welcomed and raised two daughters Melissa (Jason) and Trisha (Derek) who grew into women she was extremely proud of. A loving wife, daughter and sister, a nurturing and caring mother, a wonderful and loved sister-in-law to Gail, Bonnie, Krista, Cristina, Luca, Bruno and Linda. Zia and great-zia to many nieces and nephews. Laura was a fun-loving, strong and outgoing woman. She loved to travel, garden, cook and entertain but her pride and joy was her family and she relished spending time with the people she loved. She lit up every room she walked into and touched the lives of everyone she met. To say she was an amazing woman would be an understatement. She will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
