Judy Our deepest condolences to you and your family. Your kids and grandchildren will miss a dad and grandfather. Ron and José Geerdink Holland
I welded with Gordy lots and later in our carreers Gord worked for Me. He was a very talented Pipeline Welder with alot of finesse and always did high quality work. He was always very helpfull showing his techniques and tricks to other welders if they wanted help. When our son Luke started welding He was partnered up with Gordy and He still talks about how much He learned from him. Gord finished his last welding job working for me in 2009 (Brandon Manitoba) and as always did a fantastic job. A Great Mand and He will be dearly missed. RIP Gord. Brian Klashinsky
Gord was what I call a Finesse Welder. He was like Masters Degree in welding . Gord worked for me numerous times and always did a stellar job.. He always shared and taught his secrets to many other welders. Gord worked his last job for me on 2009 in Brandon Manitoba and as usual did a fantastic job. Please know all family what a great man Gord was. Brian Klashinsky.
