Richard Gordon Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce that Richard Gordon passed away peacefully on Friday, February 16, 2024. Richard is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Pearl Herscovitch; his wonderful and caring daughters, Melynda (Richard) and Rebecca (Tristan); and grandchildren Bridget and Eleanor.

Richard had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed camping throughout the year. He turned his passion for the arts into a career, curating in public galleries. He had a great sense of humour, always made time for fun, and was a fabulous cook, creating dishes that were enjoyed by family and friends at dinners and celebrations. He was a great storyteller, spinning fact and fiction with entertaining results.

Richard will be lovingly remembered and missed by his many friends and family members for his kindness and compassion.
