They then moved to Jacquet River to work at Noranda Smelter and start a family. Gordon was employed at Noranda for 36 years until his retirement in 2003. He took great pride in his work always being the first man in to put coffee on for everyone. While still working at the Smelter, he became a volunteer firefighter. Many courses later, he had worked his way up to Deputy Chief of Station 1. Gordon had attended many meetings and took several courses improving his knowledge in the department. He spent many hours in schools teaching safety to children. He also was readily available to the community for traffic control for events. When he was needed, he was there. After retirement from the Fire Department, Gordon kept busy doing woodworking and crafts. When he made cabinets for his wife, he also ended up making some for her friend. Gordon will be greatly missed in our village. Rest in peace dad. You will be in our hearts forever.
