Gord Whitehead R.I.P.

Some oldtimers here - present company included - may remember Gord Whitehead.
Gord passed at his Parkhill home over the weekend.

He enjoyed a 55 year long career in journalism which included news director at CFPL Radio in London in the 70s.
Following which Gord was also employed as a  managing editor in the CFRB newsroom.
He eventually gravitated toward newspaper writing with his final column appearing July 25th of this year - written from his hospital bed.
A journalist to the very end.

"I'll kick your ass down Yonge Street"... CFTR's Robert Holiday circa 1979...

Sad to hear.  I certainly remember him from CFPL.  He had a unique and authoritative on-air delivery.
