April 22, 1962 - April 1, 2019

Gordon was born to Francis and Bernadette Alyward on April 22, 1962 in Main Brook. The family moved to Goose Cove from Fishot Island in 1970. Gordon was a very quiet man, who enjoyed the simple things in life, like having get-togethers with family and friends. He loved his family dearly. He was very proud of his daughter, Pamela and two grand kids, Matthew and Aiden and spoke of them so often. He would light up when talking about all his brothers and sisters and mom and dad. He faced many challenges but always had a smile. He will be forever loved and sadly missed by his Father Francis; Sisters, Eileen, Denise (Wes); Brothers, Fred (Maureen), Steven (Sharon), Leonard (Mary), Wayne (Dianne), Clem, Edward (Charmaine), as well as his extra-special Aunt Jose and Uncle Dorm who held a special place in his heart. Also left with fond and loving memories are a large extended family of Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, and Cousins. He will be missed as well by his special friend Gloria and the caring staff for the John M. Gray. Your care and compassion will never be forgotten. Gordon is predeceased by his loving Mother, Bernadette, and brother-in-law John McCarthy. Visitation was held from Kerry M.
