Gord’s life was defined by the trades he mastered and the businesses he and Bev owned and operated. These included Ogilvie’s Plumbing and Heating, Holiday Family Cottages, Kilmarnock Mechanical and Kilmarnock Estates. He was always busy. Gord served as a councillor for the Township of Wolford, and for many years looked after Wolford Cemetery and enjoyed announcing the tractor pulls at Lombardy. His hands were never idle for long.

Retirement found him at his winter home in Florida cheering for the Spanish Village baseball team and then home to Kilmarnock to be with friends and family.
