MORRISON, Gordon Garfield, age 82, of Antigonish, NS.

It is with great sadness that the family of Gordon Morrison announces his passing on December 24, 2021, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Sydney, NS, to the late Kenneth and Tena (MacCuspic) Morrison, Gord grew up in Sydney (Whitney Pier) NS, and attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, where he graduated with a Degree in Pharmacy.  After a short working career in Sydney, he was transferred to Toronto, Ontario, with Warner-Chilcott as Director of Sales for the Province of Ontario.  From there, he worked at Facelle as Sales Manager for Eastern Canada.  After retirement, Gord and his wife Christine relocated to Chesley, Ontario, where they operated a small hobby farm for a number of years before moving to Antigonish, NS, to be closer to family and where they ran a B & B.

Gordon had a love for music and was very involved in St. James United Church, including the Choir, the Men’s Group and Bible Study.  He greatly enjoyed involvement in Community Theatre and Choir.  He also had a passion for golfing, curling and woodworking.

Gordon is survived by his beloved wife, Christine, of 50 years and by his daughter, Joanna and granddaughter, Lily.  He is lovingly remembered by his sisters, Agnes (Ted) Cogan, Norma (Cameron) MacKenzie, and his sister-in-law Carol Morrison, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Kenneth.

A Memorial Service will be held in the spring.  Gordon will be greatly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. 

In Memoriam, donations to a charity of choice appreciated.  Funeral arrangements are under the direction of C.L. Curry Funeral Home, Antigonish.  Online condolences:  www.clcurry.com
