Obituary for Gordon Alan Whitehead

Print
Gordon Alan Whitehead of Parkhill was surrounded by his family as he passed away on Saturday, August 4th, 2018. Loving and doting husband of Sylvia (2017) for almost 50 years. Together Gord and Sylvia raised their cherished family of Tanya (Mark) and Alan (Ron) in Mount Albert, finally settling in Parkhill Ontario. Gord loved his delightful Grandchildren Liam and Drew and leaves many memories of smiles and laughter.

Gord grew up in Golspie, West Zorra Township, Ontario in a small family with his loved sister Barb (Gary) Johnston. There he attended SS #8, a one room school house before going on to Woodstock Collegiate Secondary School and eventually receiving his Honours BA in Journalism at the University of Western Ontario in 1965.

In papers typed by Gord, titled “Everything you need to know about Gord Whitehead and more”, pride is seen in the accomplishments and impact Gord made in the surrounding areas in his creativity and journalism. Items include: The Medical Monitoring radio show and News Director for CFPL, Managing Editor at Standard Broadcasting CFRB 1010, and the News Reporter for several papers including the Parkhill Gazette and Times Advance. Gord’s final news article was published on July 25th in The Exeter Lakeshore Times-Advance, written from his hospital bed. Gord’s legacy in broadcasting, reporting, writing, and editing covered a span of over 55 years.

A service will be conducted on Thursday, August 9th, 2018 at 2pm from M.Box & Son Funeral Home, 183 Broad Street Parkhill, ON following a visitation from 12pm-2pm. Cadet Andrew Cherry of the Salvation Army will be officiating.
