The Association of Ontario Land Surveyors is sad to notify you of the death of Gordon Callander McRostie OLS# 632
Gordon passed away on June 9, 2018
What a life! Sky diving at 90; skiing at 95; and finding opportunity to be generous and encourage others throughout. His many talents included: water-skiing, wind-surfing, golfing, unicycling, juggling, poker-playing, gymnastics, tennis, bowling and ear wiggling. He was a most surprising host at dinner parties. Having been on a submarine, shipwrecked in Antarctica, climbed to base camp of Mt. Everest, his passion for travel took him to most countries and all our continents. His spot at the dinner table will now be vacant in many homes.
His final family dinner in March was attended by all who were at his side in his final days; his son Govindha, daughter Nora, nephew Jeff Kohl and his wife Kara, along with his good friends Joanna Gualtieri and her husband Serge Landry, Floren and Jesusa Nicolas, and his grandchildren Johanna Waller and her husband Don, Megan and Kate Poupore, as well as his great grandchildren, Remington and Madeline Waller.
In lieu of flowers, Gordon insists you consider a donation to the McRostie Integrity Fund a special project of the Canadian charity FAIR. Gordon was an ardent supporter of FAIR which advanced professional integrity. The McRostie Integrity Fund is a new project to teach and promote vocational integrity in youth.
