Obituary

Peacefully, with family by his side, at the Brantford General Hospital, on April 13, 2019, in his 87th year. Beloved husband for over 60 years to Marie (nee Stroud). Loving father to Jack and his wife Maria Dewit, Mark and his partner Alla Lazutina, Darrin (2007) and his wife Carey Ferris, Joyce and her partner Jerry Martens. Also, by his side was Carey’s special friend Bob Botosh.

Proud grandpa to Victoria and her partner Mark Oliver, Sophia, Briana, Aidan, Max Frew and Thomas and his partner Leah Voisin, Amy, Troy and his partner Alyson Verhoeve, Leah Wilson. Adoring great grandfather to Bodhi McDonald.

Dear brother to Mac (2002) and his wife Lucy, William (1978) and his wife Em (2010), Don (2018) and his wife Norma, Joyce and her husband Tom (1992) Darnbrook, Donna and her husband Bob Hamilton, Eleanor and her husband Wallace (2018) Kennedy, Bonnie and her husband Kurt Eser. Brother-in-Law to Fred Stroud (1985) Ray (1998) and his wife Linda Stroud. Predeceased by his parents Jack and Kathleen Frew and father in law and mother in law, Wallace and May Stroud. Gordon will also be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews.

Gordon was a well-respected farmer and neighbour in the community of Norwich and county of Norfolk. Gordon was a pioneer and legend as he along with his wife Marie, successfully grew the family home farm into a legacy for generations to come. Gordon or Mr. Frew was a trusted advisor and mentor to so many. Gordon enjoyed his cash crop farms, but his love of beef cattle is what he will be remembered for the most.

Gordon always took time out of his busy schedule to support organizations like the Ontario Beef Producers for Change, he was a Director on the Norwich CO-OP Board, member of KTV United Church and faithful devoted brother of the Scotland Masonic Lodge 193. Gordon also enjoyed euchre with so many friends and family.

He will always be known for the love of his family and friends especially all his grandchildren. He was so proud of them all and had a sweet spot for “the boss” Bodhi. Love ones will miss Gordon’s phone calls but especially his smile.

Special thank you to the staff at Woodingford, Woodstock, Brantford General Hospital and Brant County Fire and Rescue Units.

We are very sorry to read that Gord passed away. Our condolences to the family. Gord was a wonderful man and when we got our first meat order from Frew Farms Gord was there bright and early at the Packers to help wrap our meat order and make sure all was done as we wanted. Bill Heather and Jeff Blair.
