HEAD­ING, James Gor­don

Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam/ Games -

James Gor­don Head­ing, of Syd­ney, passed away Fri­day, May 5, 2017, at home.

Born in Regina, he was the son of the late James and Phobe (Al­dred) Head­ing.

Gor­don was a proud Dad and hus­band, who was in­volved in the com­mu­nity all of his life. In the early years, he was in­volved with the Lions Club and Kinsmen, and had a life­long love of politics. Later in life, he sat on boards and sup­ported char­i­ta­ble events, hap­pily giv­ing his time to his com­mu­nity. As a young man, Gor­don loved the out­doors, par­tic­u­larly, Loch Lomond, where he spent many hours hunt­ing and fish­ing. In his re­tire­ment, he re­dis­cov­ered his love of fish­ing. An en­tre­pre­neur from early in life, his great pas­sion was tourism. A tire­less ad­vo­cate for Cape Bre­ton, Gor­don worked in the in­dus­try for more than forty years. He was rec­og­nized for his work with CBTA (Cape Bre­ton Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion), TIANS (Travel In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion of Nova Sco­tia) and was in­ducted into the Cape Bre­ton Business and Phi­lan­thropy Hall of Fame. While Gor­don ap­pre­ci­ated these awards, what he loved best was the time he spent with the many peo­ple he worked with over the years.

Gor­don is sur­vived by his daugh­ters, Sharon (Bill MacK­in­non), Alta. and Wanda (Peter Blom), Hal­i­fax; sons, Jim (Liz), Cox­heath and Gra­ham (Dar­lene), West­mount; son-in­law, Paul Ken­dall, Hal­i­fax; nine grand­chil­dren and four great­grand­chil­dren.

He was pre­de­ceased by his wife, Elsie (Burns); daugh­ter, Pa­tri­cia; sis­ter, Mary; brother, Arthur, and grand­daugh­ter, Ni­cole.

Visi­ta­tion will take place at Syd­ney Memorial Chapel on Thurs­day, May 11, 2017 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. A cel­e­bra­tion of life will be held in the chapel on Fri­day at 2 p.m. In­ter­ment (im­me­di­ate fam­ily only) will take place in Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery.
