‘Together Forever’

Gordon (Mr. C) Compton passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at Chelsey Park. He was met by the loving arms of his true love, Atty and their eldest daughter, Carla. Theirs was a true love story spanning over 75 years after they met in Sneek, Netherlands over a shared stick of gum, during WW II where he was serving with the Perth Regiment.

He will be remembered by his daughters:  Linda McDougall (Gord), of London, ON; Sandi Stephens (Paul), of Sherwood Park, AB; and Debbie May (Jeff), of Wellesley, ON. He is survived by 15 grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered by Atty's family in the Netherlands and all his friends in London and Bayfield.

Gord's life was full with family, slo-pitch (playing and umpiring) travelling with his children, grandchildren and friends and 50 years at Paul Bunyan Camp in Bayfield. His work life was spent as an OR Tech at Victoria Hospital, a vehicle maintenance sub-contractor at Bell Canada and, after his retirement, 11 years driving school buses.

Thanks to all the staff at Chelsey Park LTC facility who made Gord's last years comfortable. 

A memorial service to celebrate Gord’s life will be held Friday, July 26th 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, with visitation from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
