Passed on: January 10th, 2013

Johnston, Gordon Arthur, 70, of Windsor, formerly of Stanley, Hants County, passed away on January 10, 2013 in the Q.E.II Infirmary Site. Gordon was well liked and had many close friends, special bonds and warm relationships. Gordon was an avid dancer in his day, teaching many women how to do the "Hants County Two-Step" (also known as the "Johnston stomp"). In addition to enjoying bowling and snooker, Gordon was also a keen 45's player. An outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing, he was to his credit, a good rum drinker. He won't be missed by Atlantic Lotto, as he was a strategic and successful VLT player. Gordon loved life, children, and had a fabulous sense of humour. He worked for Municipal Contracting and was later self-employed producing fence posts, rails and working in the outdoors. Gordon is survived by his siblings, Laurie Johnston of Calgary, Anna (Cecil) Macumber of Bramber, Audrey Johnston of Windsor, Helen (Fred) Wile of Greenfield, 14 nieces and nephews and many grand nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Kenneth Johnston and mother Evelyn Johnston (Vaughan) of Greenfield, Hants County, brother, Lloyd Johnston of Centre Rawdon and stepfather Freeman Vaughan of Centre Burlington. Arrangements were under the care of Lindsay’s Windsor Funeral Home (798-2232), 194 King Street, Windsor. A reception was held Sunday, January 13th at the Hants County Branch 009 Royal Canadian Legion, 40 Empire Lane, Windsor from 12 noon until 1:30 p.m. to celebrate his life. Donations in his memory were requested to be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia. On-line condolences may be sent by clicking on “Guest Book” at www.lindsaysfuneralhome.com
