Gordon continues from page 1 According to witnesses, Gordon was on his cell phone when he leaned against an idling truck pulled over in front of his building. The driver of the truck had pulled over to take a call. Witnesses said that when the driver was finished his call, he went to pull away. He could not see Gordon, who was on the passenger side of the truck. Witnesses said Gordon was caught in the wheel and died. Dr. Ismail went to her window to say something to Gordon, who had been joking with her. She saw him on the ground and rushed downstairs to attend to him. “Salima is an angel,” said Karen Gordon, Ken’s daughter, at his memorial service. “She was there to hold his hand and comfort him as he left us.” Osgoode Councillor George Darouze was the President of the Osgoode Snowmobile Club when he met Gordon. The two quickly became friends. “It was because of Ken that I got into politics,” Darouze said. “He used to always tell me ‘some day you will be Mayor of Osgoode.’ When Doug Thompson retired from being the Osgoode Councillor, Ken registered me and told me I was running.” Gordon was a fixture in Manotick with his white truck and his signature “GETRDUN” license plate. He was known for his love of his family, his playful sense of humour, and an insatiable work ethic. Gordon, who would always say he was a graduate of the University of Mud, quit high school at the age of 16 and began to work. Before long, he bought his own back hoe, and then another, and before long, he

was building a company that would become a backbone of the region. As a developer, his legacy is and always will be Rideau Forest. He originally wanted the development to be in Rideau, but was unable to come to terms on a deal. He and Bill Tomlinson would go ahead with the development in Osgoode. According to Karen Gordon, her father knew the value of a Manotick address, so he ensured that his development would have a 692 telephone exchange, as well as the addresses of the homes coming up as Manotick on the MLS listings. Gordon’s nephew, Jeff Bracken, also spoke at the memorial service and told of how his uncle gave everyone a nickname. “I was always ‘Pig Farmer’ to Uncle Ken,” Bracken said. “It didn’t matter where we were or who I was with. I would go in somewhere

and I would hear him from across the room. ‘Hey Pig Farmer!’ Bracken also spoke fondly of his uncle’s love of family and his incredible work ethic. At the end of the ceremony, the gathering sang “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Tree”, and then enjoyed an open bar, Dairy Queen Dilly Bars and 1,000 butter tarts. “This would be the time to sell Dairy Queen stock.” Karen Gordon said. “Dad loved Dairy Queen. Once he had 11 Dilly Bars in one sitting.” Gordon was recognized at the Manotick BIA monthly meeting/Dr. Ismail, who is Chair of the BIA, called for a moment of silence in Ken Gordon’s memory after members reflected on his life and his contributions to Manotick and South Carleton.

Ken Gordon was a man who always ‘got ‘er done’ By Liam Maguire

In what can only be described as an event, or as my uncle John Payne likes to say, a happening, a crowd of approximately 1500 people gathered at Stanley Farms on Wednesday September 12th to celebrate the life of a local icon, one of the most influential people in the history of Ottawa-Carleton, a friend to many and a man who loved his family. We lost Ken Gordon suddenly and tragically on Friday September 7th in Manotick, the village he loved so fondly, in front of the Milton Gordon Building, (a building he owned and named in honour of his beloved grandfather) on Ann Street and by an accident with a vehicle, the likes of which he had spent most of his life around. It was a set of circumstances that even with some knowledge of what happened, most of us are still confused, frustrated, saddened and angry that it could and did happen, and that is just us, his countless friends, imagine his family. Yet, there they were, in the immediate hours and the first days after Ken’s passing facing the avalanche of condolences, coming via social media, text, calls, face-to-face, every form of communication possible and their stoic, grateful acknowledgment of everybody reach-

ing out was amazing and probably helped hundreds of people cope with their own waterfall of grief with the news. The family called it a celebration of life. My goodness, it was that and then some. Stanley Farms located just south of Edwards was the perfect location and perfect backdrop to champion Ken’s remembrance. His white truck sat majestically out front, the personalized license plates with his GETRDUN moniker almost jumping off at you as you passed by. The guests rolled up to a party fit for a king, which if you think about it, he kind of was the king of our area. Cold beverages and hors d’oeuvres greeted the first guests. Soon after live Irish music was played and it wasn’t Danny Boy, it was upbeat traditional Irish music. If you ventured inside, out of the heat, the fully stocked open bar beckoned. You could have a drink, there was all of Ken’s favourite foods and it was a grand party, really only missing one person, Ken Gordon! A large screen was set up and a camera out side was operated to show live video so you missed nothing. When the eulogies began, and if the heat was too much for some, as it was for my 87-year old mother, Sarah Maguire, you simply moved inside, sat with

your drink, watched and listened to the speakers regale us about the man. It was so perfect you had almost forgotten you were there for what should have been a somber moment. However, it wasn’t mournful at all and that is exactly how Ken would have wanted it, as his family has pointed out time and again. Think about this for a moment folks. This entire event, this celebration of life was organized to the T in less than five days! Are you kidding me? Simply unreal and unbelievable. A huge tip of the cap to Stanley Farms, the Gordon, McNeil and Bracken families and all who were able to pull this off in that time period. Ken Gordon’s life has been fairly well publicized given how he built a business and a reputation from scratch after being a high school drop out. As much as most of us know a little bit about many of his ventures, many of us cannot fully grasp the scope of how hard he worked for decades to achieve his status and success. Ken was born in 1942 in Manotick and still lived within five miles of the family farm. Make no mistake about it, he would take on business ventures anywhere, anytime but he gravitated to the 692 area. So much so as we found out that when he first began developing


A crowd of about 1,500 was both outside and inside at Stanley’s Maple Farm in Edwards, east of Greely. Jeff Morris photo Rideau Forest with Bill Tomlinson, Ken went through the formal process of ensuring the residents would have 692 phone numbers. They

may not have been in the village proper, but by god they would be considered Manotick. On top of that, as he was quick to point out, it was

better for sales. Ken never, ever missed an opportunity to try and turn ten bucks into twenty.

GORDON continues from page 3 For the thousands of us who grew up locally, we will always remember the shade of blue that adorned his machinery through the life of Ken Gordon Excavating a business he started when he was 18 years old, after buying his first backhoe. For 35 years, Ken carved out our landscapes and dug through a billion tons of mud becoming the largest hourly excavating company in the Ottawa Valley. I don’t know why but for whatever reason the first people I think of when I think of Ken Gordon Excavating outside of Ken are Dennis Brownrigg and Wayne Coady. I know he had many other employees but I think of them first and foremost. I think of the times I went by Ken’s office to get a cheque as he sponsored something usually hockey related I was involved in. That time period does not represent my first time meeting him however. In the early 70’s, Ken and his wife Nancy would attend parties at my parent’s house on the Kars Road. They would come with neighbours of theirs, the Koubas, who were friends with mother and my late father. I can picture Ken coming through our door that

first time like it was yesterday. He was loud, gregarious, kind of burst in and he was carrying a brown bag, the ones we would get at the grocery store in those days. It was full of beer. Always full of beer. I made a note of that. The subsequent times Ken and Nancy rolled in to our house and he handed the bag to me for safe keeping for the party, my brothers and I whisked it upstairs and downed a few pints. My brothers and I were 12, 13, and14 years old. So funny. I only divulged this information to Ken about fifteen years ago at Helen’s Place (Riverview Pub) on the River Road. He laughed so loud and so hard I thought he was going to fall off his chair. He was such a prankster and loved gags. I think Ken loved it that all those years ago my brother’s and I got one over on him and my dad. Not really, we drank a few beers, believe me they weren’t short any for their party but still, he loved it and almost every time he saw me after, he would tell whoever was around the story. In and around that time Ken joined Rideau View Golf Club. The club was allowing gentiles to join and Ken rolled into the membership joining

an eclectic group of men. Dare I say he was the catalyst for the post round gambling that took place at men’s night on Wednesday’s, which took on a life of its own. Ken was fond of saying to certain members, Billy Droeske comes to mind, “want to flip for a musical?” Which in other words meant a 50-dollar bill because the RCMP musical ride was depicted on the bill. The game of pigs, flipping those plastic little animals was as much a part of his social fabric with the guys as it was having that cold pint. It seems only fitting that the golf club lowered the flag to half mast on Saturday in honour of Ken.

As the years rolled by Ken’s children, Karen, Kevin and Kris grew up and as want will have it, his 41-year marriage to Nancy came to an end. Been there done that. In fact of all people to give me some counsel after my marriage ended, was none other than Ken Gordon one night, at Helen’s as usual, and his words and thoughts were very supportive and helpful. Nancy was a Bracken, and if there is a Manotick family with a lineage it’s them. They were referred to during one of the eulogies as the Bracken mob. There are a lot of them and many were in attendance and as a friend to them all it

ber his time at St. Leonard’s Church, it was good to see him and he spoke eloquently as he always did. With conviction he stated nobody was more alive during this celebration of life than Ken Gordon. I took that comment to heart and thought about the impact Ken had on us all how he never went by you without stopping for a word, a comment, a remark, anything, and it is why the message in the obituary and through the eulogies was constant; Buy someone a beer; talk to someone you don’t know and tell a joke.

was so nice to hear the love the Gordon’s hold for that iconic Manotick family. Of course Nancy was Ken’s wife but beyond that this was a coupling of families and a bond that will never be broken. The same has to be said for Ken’s current girlfriend, Kathie McNeil. She had become the absolute perfect partner for Ken, loved by all, as she became a part of his life and him a part of hers with her children. Heartfelt condolences to Ms. McNeil as well. A surprise attendee for some at the celebration was Father Joe LeClair. In fact he also was asked to speak and for those of us that remem-

BIA discusses parking problems on Manotick Main Street While the community is excited for the opening of the Vault, a new restaurant on Manotick Main Street in the location of the old RBC Royal Bank, there is also concern over where Manotick’s restaurant patrons will park. Members of the Manotick BIA had an active discussion Friday and discussed various options for parking. Among the ideas tossed

onto the table were a paid parking lot in the village and angled parking on Manotick Main Street. “I don’t think Manotick is ready for a paid parking lot,” said Rideau Councillor Scott Moffatt. Black Dog Bistro owner Dot Janz expressed concern that when the Vault is opened, there may not be enough parking spots available for the number of

people coming to Manotick’s village core, particularly for lunch at Manotick’s restaurants. “Parking in the village is becoming more of a problem,” Janz said. Moffatt indicated that a no parking sign was being removed in Manotick, which will create 6-8 new spots on

Main Street. Jim Stewart, a former Rideau Township Mayor and Councillor, said that before amalgamation, there was parking on both sides of the street. Stewart owns Manotick Office Pro on Manotick Main Street. “After we became part of the City of Ottawa, their en-

gineers came in and shifted the centre line so that there was only parking on one side of the street,” he said. “If the centre line could be shifted back to the centre of the street, we could have parking on both sides.” Another issue that came up in the discussion was employee parking. Some of the

employees at businesses are using parking designated for customers rather than parking in the areas designated for employees. “People coming into town coming north come over the hill, slow down to look for parking, can’t find any, and away they go right out of the village,” said Stewart.

The colours are coming as Autumn officially arrives on Sept. 22

Nearly every week in the year has a significant day or has been designated as “such and such week”. The first day of Autumn is officially September 22nd in 2018 Nature is the master decorator, but then she has the finest accessories at her command. Curtains and drapes of misty silver; multihued clouds; the swags and fringes and vivid accents of leaves are under Nature’s command. The rugs she unrolls with floral patterns, the lush green of lawns and pastures, the shimmering gold of the grain fields and later, much later, the deep white fur of glittering snow. There are no discords in nature; nature’s colours cannot clash, as they may on canvas or fabrics. Outdoor light has a quality that blends their native beauty, whatever the hues. Archi-

THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

tects have discovered that the most beautiful, livable houses are those which allow nature to do much of the decorating through windows which frame the landscape and draw in the outdoors. Shadows come into some new, brilliant individuality on a sparkling day in fall. Sidewalks are stripped with a picket fence, like the one on Dickinson Street, while farther down the street the shadow of the trees mesh with grass to form a “cobweb” image. Trees seem to reprint themselves in a shadowy blur on the pave-

ment. I think that it is natural for rocks to be a kind of gray, having lain under the heavens for so long, they should be gray as if it were some intermediate colour between heaven and earth. The air is the paint in which they have been dipped and then brushed with the wind. Time makes materials harmonize. As summers moments pass quickly we stand face to face with the routine and rigours of another fall and winter. For many, the days are packed with activities and commitments, each the sign of a full life. Fall in all its glory is upon us; its cool breezes chase Augusts’ humidity from the air. The whirr and whine of air conditioners and fans gave way to the rustling of waiting leaves longing for release.

Another time to treasure in the memory, it’s an exciting season; change comes quickly and quietly, the seasons overlap and blend together, so enjoy each one to the fullest.

Legion members happy to see poppy symbol back on the Vimy Bridge By Charlie Senack Members of the Manotick and Barrhaven Legion branches are happy to see the poppy symbol reappear on the Vimy Memorial Bridge sign after it was replaced without it. On August 29, former Gloucester-South Nepean Councillor Steve Desroches was driving over the bridge which connects Barrhaven to Riverside South, when he noticed the sign welcoming cars onto the bridge was changed, and was missing the poppy symbol. “I travel that bridge everyday to go to work, hockey rinks, and to go shopping,” said Desroches who is running to be the Nepean Conservative candidate in the next Federal election. “I always remember our veterans from Vimy when I go over the bridge, and I noticed the signs had been replaced. The new format did not have the poppy symbol.”

Desroches contacted Coun. Jan Harder’s office, as well as Ernie Hughes, the second President of the Barrhaven Legion — who was instrumental in the naming and building of the $40 million bridge. “I had a little part in building and naming the bridge, but it was a great honour for me, a great honour just to have a little part to do with it,” said Hughes. “There are always people talking about that bridge and how great it looks, and how it brought the two communities back together again.” Coun. Harders office worked with the city to create three different design options which included the poppy on the new sign — and gave the legion members the chance to choose which design would be implemented. They chose to go with the second option which adds a poppy next to the wording. The poppy flower is a

copyrighted symbol, and Desroches said the city had to get permission in 2014 to put it on the sign. He believes the sign was changed to match other bridge signs around the community, and said the poppy was left out in error. “We are pleased the poppy will be assigned to its rightful place on the bridge to remind people (both) young and old the importance of Vimy in our history,” Desroches said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to commemorate our veterans and their role in our history.” The bridge has recently become a landmark in the community, and has its famous white arches appearing on many promotional posters for the Barrhaven BIA. It also has a new dental office named after it, and the Barrhaven Independent has now implemented it in their new logo. Desroches said the poppy

Naming of street in North Gower honours local war hero

A local war hero has now been officially recognized in North Gower. The ribbon was officially cut to open Ralph Jago Way, a street off of Roger Stevens Drive across from the North Gower Client Services Centre, in a ceremony held Fri., Sept. 14. Dr. Bill Tupper, a former Rideau Mayor and Member of Parliament, was the master of ceremonies for the event. Representatives from Park View Homes said that they did not know who Ralph Jago was. But when they saw his bio, they were thrilled to recognize him with the naming of the street. Rideau Councillor Scott Moffatt thanked everyone involved in the naming process, particularly former Councillor Glenn Brooks, who initiated the process of having the street named for Jago. Local historian Owen Cook spoke about Jago’s life and his heroism in the first World War in the Cologne Raid, at Vimy Ridge, Somme and other battles, as well as his service in the second

World War. Cook is working on a book of local war heroes from the South Carleton area, and Jago is among those featured. Jago’s great grandson, Andrew, spoke on behalf of the family and expressed his appreciation of the naming of the street. “Our family still has a huge connection to North Gower,” he said. “My grandfather, Craig Jago, had saved all of the letters he sent from the trenches. Last November, I went to France and retraced his footsteps through the different battle sites. We appreciate it.” Carleton MP Goldie Ghamari returned from Queen’s Park in Toronto for the ceremony. She said that “what Major Jago did and his sacrifice to our country is what makes Canada the best place in the world.” Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre also spoke at the event. “It’s an honour to be here,” Poilievre said. “If we can see over the horizon, it’s because we are standing on the shoul-

ders of giants. Major Jago was a giant.” Dr. Dennis Osmond also spoke on behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion South Carleton Branch 314 in Manotick. Jago was born in Dartmouth, NS in 1886. He became a member of the 13th Scottish Light Dragoons in the Militia in 1915 and was appointed Lieutenant in the 40th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, later that year. In March, 2016, Jago proceeded to France. He fought with the 20th Battalion in the tranches. By April, 2016, he was serving with the 4th Infantry Brigade Trench Mortar Battery, later known as the 4th Canadian Light Trench Mortar Battery. He would become a captain on Nov. 11, 1916. He served with the Trench Mortars through the Battle for the St. Eloi Craters in April, 1916, and then the latter stages of the Battle of Somme, specifically the Battle for the Sugar Refinery, where his unit was on the front lines.

Family, veterans and politicians gathered for the ribbon cutting of the official naming of Ralph Jago Way in North Gower. Jeff Morris photo The Battle of Somme, which was the first battle in history where military tanks were used, was the bloodiest battle in human history at the time. In 1917, he was awarded the Military Cross. According to his citation, “on one occasion, during a hostile counter-attack and while in imminent danger of being cut off, he continued to fire his guns with such effect that the enemy attack was broken. Throughout the operations,

this officer displayed the greatest courage and cheerfulness in encouraging his men under most trying conditions.” He fought with the Canadian Light Trench Mortar Battery again in 1918, and was returned to England and then discharged after suffering from pneumonia. After the war, he married Muriel Clara Craig, and he owned and operated Jago Construction in North Gower.

At the age of 57, he was too old for combat duty in World War II, but he served as an engineer and worked on the construction of transit camps. He retired from the military in 1945 and had achieved the rank of Major. He lived on Church Street in North Gower, until he died at the National Defence Medical Centre on Oct. 5, 1971. He is buried in his family plot at the Holy Trinity Anglican Cemetery in North Gower.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Singing with a band a dream come true for Orchard Walk resident

Residents of Orchard Walk listen to John LeMay sing. By Jeff Morris As the second verse in the song says, he’s lived a life that’s full. John LeMay, a 95-year-old resident of Orchard Walk Retirement Community on Manotick Station Road, got the chance to sing Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’ with a band for his fellow residents on Friday,

Sept. 7. The opportunity was made possible through Orchard View’s Living Wish program. LeMay’s living wish was to sing with a band, and he chose ‘My Way.’ Ron Demers, who works at Orchard View, is a drummer in a band, so his band, Double Standard, came in to entertain the residents for an afternoon get together.

Jeff Morris photos

The highlight of their performance was LeMay’s song, with two other residents of Orchard Walk acting as back up singers. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson attended the event and introduced LeMay, a veteran of World War II. Osgoode Councillor George Darouze was also at Orchard Walk to hear LeMay sing.

River Road Closed until November

A section of River Road between Rideau and Earl Armstrong will be closed until November to enable Urbandale to extend the trunk watermain as well as sanitary and storm sewers south of Summerhill.

Traffic is being rerouted along Spratt Road via Rideau at the south end and Earl Armstrong on the north end. Drivers are also being encouraged to use Limebank Road instead of River Road.

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and selfworth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can be challenging. That’s because making friends may

not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They see the same kids each day at school and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by join-

ing groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough


patches in your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think
