if this is a false rumour then i apologize and feel terrible for posting (but will be pleased he's well), can anyone confirm?

regardless, before the night's through i'm going to listen to the Two Tones in private with sadness, yet wearing a big smile

Found this in the Orillia Packet & Times obits. No mention of Gord or the Two Tones but he sang barbershop in high school as did Gord.

thanks AA... yeah, very sad, bru
Bob Burchill (longtime folk musician) said some nice words yesterday at his GL Tribute

i ended up listening to a Jim Reeves comp after the Two Tones early this morn... he always makes me think of Gordon and Terry

coincidentally, i'm just off to Orillia to visit family and friends ...not far from Washago ...ironically, John recently posted a wonderful pic in another thread

when i chatted to my mother about this she mentioned that i was born while the boys were recording the Village Corner sessions

what a week, so inspirational for songwriting

Yes this is true. Sorry to say. I am a friend of his daughter-in-law. He passed away quietly about two weeks ago.

I am so sorry. I am sure we would want to send our condolences to his family - please tell Terry's d-in-l.
