Posted by on April 13, 2015

1 Dad Cover photoGordon Ronald Marshall of Durham, formerly of Toronto, passed away at South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Durham on Thursday, April 9, 2015 in his 73rd year.

Gordon was born in Toronto and spent some time early in his career as a Toronto Police Officer. Upon moving up to Durham he worked as an engineer at Interforest. To say that Gordon was a collector is an understatement. He loved to collect hockey cards, comic books, antiques, and toys, just to name a few! Gordon enjoyed playing slow pitch for the Goodtimers and Grateful Dead and could often be found heading out with his fishing gear in hand. He will always be remembered by his family as the trivia king!

Beloved husband of Susan (Zinga) to whom he was married for 51 years. Cherished father of Gord Jr. (Laurel) of Oakville, Lisa (Paul) Marshall-Malterre of the Netherlands, Tina (Brian) Tulloch of Victoria, B.C. and Jennifer (Dan) Foxcroft of Chesley. Grandpa and Papa will be sadly missed by his grandchildren, Matthew, Anton, Nelina, Leo, Lucas, Nathan, Serena and Ashley. Fondly remembered by his siblings, Marjorie (George) Witherspoon, Jim Marshall, Bob (Norma) Marshall, Helen Bower and Arthur Marshall. Gordon also leaves behind his cherished cats, Lucy and Gracey.

Gordon was predeceased by his brother Harold, sister-in-law Meryl Marshall, brother-in-law Vic Bower and his parents, Harold and Nellie (Batts) Marshall.

Visitation will be held at Rhody Family Funeral Home, Chesley on Tuesday from 2 – 4 and   7 – 9 p.m. where a funeral service celebrating Gordon’s life will be held on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at 2 p.m. Interment in Durham Cemetery.

Memorial donations to Prostate Cancer Canada would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
