It is with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the passing of Gordon Leo Corbett, who was born on May 22, 1959, in Sydney and passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, November 12, 2023, at the young age of 64. Gordon was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend.
Left to mourn Gordon’s passing are his wife, Roberta; daughter, Shawna (Gilbert); cherished grandchildren, Scarlet and Xander; honorary grandchildren, Hailey and Mikayla; sisters, Kaye (Jack), Lorraine (Dave), and Arlene; sisters-in-law, Michelle (Bruce), Denise and Tanya, along with many nieces and nephews.
Gordie was a dedicated member of the International Labourers Union, with a lifelong commitment to Local 1115. As a proud union member, he was a role model to the young work force helping individuals begin their journeys in the construction industry. Gordie’s generosity extended beyond the workplace, as he assisted many in finding a place to stay or gaining union access to kickstart their careers.
His passing leaves a void in our family but many memories that will be cherished. Waiting for Gordie with open arms are his brothers, Terrance, Bart, Kelly, Reg, Moby, Kevin, and parents, Doris and Bartholomew.
Gordie will be remembered for his unwavering dedication to his family, his union, and the countless lives he touched. May his legacy of kindness and support live on in the hearts of those he influenced.
