Gordon Arthur Nicholl ventured into his new life, in peace, on Monday, January 3, 2022, at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre with his loving wife by his side. The world may change around us, but our never-ending love will always be there as a dear husband of 55 years to Sandra Diane Jean Nicholl (nee Wilson) and loving father to Dad’s Darlin Robin Jo Ann Nicholl.
He was always a proud Newfoundlander from the day he was born in Gambo on June 23, 1944. Predeceased by loving parents and in-laws; Dad - Wilfred Worthman Nicholl born in Carbonear, NL., Mother - Pat Nicholl (nee Wicks) born in Valleyfield NL., and Father and Mother-In-Law - Gerald William Wilson and Joan Wilson (nee Farrell). Survived by sisters, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law; Daphne Rohmann and long-time friend Judy Reinholt of Cathedral City, CA., Glenda Courtice (late Paul) of Bath, ON., Claudia Brews (late Peter) of Calgary, AB., and Ken William Wilson and Silvia Wilson. Survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, family in the UK and many extended families all whom he loved.
Gord had many careers that he loved and left lasting impressions on all, as a teacher, band manager and retailer. He lived a full life and met all his challenges with determination. He had the ability to make the best of any situation through his faith, his friendly demeanor and in his kindness to others. He loved learning and shared his findings with others in discussions in a thought-provoking way to make our world a better place.
