Dear Cheryl and LeAnne,
I’m so sorry to hear of Gord’s passing! My deepest condolences to you! I remember growing up visiting your Mom, Dad and Leanne at Grandma and Grandpa Fentie’s (Bruce & Tiny’s). We always had some good laughs. Gord always reminded me of Grandpa. A very kind gentleman. My heart is with you all! ❤️ Sincerely Ange Banks (Verna and Stu McKenzie’s daughter.)

Thank you so much Ange. I too remember going out to Uncle Bruce and Aunt Tiny's house usually with my Grandpa George Fentie. Wonderful memories.

Cheryl and Leanne : : Sorry for your loss.
Your Dad was well known and well liked by people in Tillsonburg, where he lived his entire life. That says something of the man he was.
i know he loved you both very much and he and your mother always seemed to have a smile on their faces.
I know Cheryl , that you have made many trips from Toronto to Tillsonburg these last several years to look after your Dad's and Leanne's well being and to be there to comfort and support them. This is a testament to the way your Mom and Dad raised you and shows the kindness and respect you have for them
Our condolences

Dear Cheryl and Leanne
I was saddened when I was informed of Uncle Gord's passing. He was a very kind and friendly man. I know he had a passion for golf, and if I remember correctly, I played a round or two with my dad and him way back in the day. I was a teenager at the time. I can't remember who won.
I remember him for his infectious laugh at family gatherings, especially when he was winning at cards when the uncles got together around the table. That thought brings up memories of family dinners for whatever occasion at Grandma Holman's. That was a long time ago but cherished memories still etched in my mind.
I send my regrets for not being able to attend Uncle Gord's service.
Love and best wishes always.

Dear Dave, I love your description of dad's laugh particularly when he was winning at cards. Yes I remember the uncles and sometimes aunts all playing card games together at family gatherings. Family dinners at Grandma Holman's where she had many pies and various homemade desserts for supper is a cherished memory I share. Thank you for reminding me of those good times. Love and and best wishes to you. Cheryl & Leanne

Cheryl and Leanne,
We were very sorry to learn of Gordon's passing. He and his cousin Don (Bruce's father) shared a very similar laugh and smile, which were frequently used. Sending our heartfelt condolences.

Dear Cheryl & Leanne: Uncle Gordon was a real gentleman. The thing a remember about him the most is his laugh. We sure had a lot of wonderful memories of being at the "Fentie" picnic each summer. Uncle Gordon was in charge of bringing that huge tub of ice cream for everyone to enjoy. May the Lord comfort you and carry you through the days to come.

Cheryl Fentie Posted at 07:48am

Yes dad was a gentleman which is a word I have heard often to describe him. Even at Maple Manor he had his wonderful smile and laugh. Wonderful memories of the Fentie picnic are gifts we share. Thank you for your prayers Carol.
