    Very sorry to hear about Gordie. I, like many people, have great memories of Hemingway’s. West Hamilton was such a great place years ago and Gordie was a big part of many peoples lives. He was one of the last great characters of West Hamilton.

    Doreen: My sympathy in the loss of your dear husband, Gord, My brother Ben and I delivered groceries for “Gordie” while living on Ward Avenue and of course, I remember him well. My mother shopped at your store for many years and I remember the “tab” booklets Gord kept for his customers. Ben passed away in 2002, age 59.
    May you be comforted knowing others share in your loss. Bill Van Dyk

  • Sandra Carpenter

    Dear Doreen and the entire Aglor family. I was deeply saddened to learn of Gord’s passing. I have many fond memories of his kindness and his good natured teasing during my teenage years in West Hamilton. His meat pies were always a special treat and service was always with a smile, a friendly worď or two and Gord always asked after family members whenever I ran into him after he retired. May he rest in peace and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sandra (Miles-Farr) Carpenter from Royal and Ward Avenues.
