The Passing of John Gordon
It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of our “Fearless Leader’, Jack Gordon. For many years he has been the chairman of the Squared Circle Study Group and Editor of the “Round Up Annex” newsletter.
John B. (Jack) Gordon, OTB, passed away on Monday, 20 May 2013.
(Jack) was a passionate philatelist who collected and assembled all of the minutia provided by the members for many years.
I only met him once at BNAPex in Halifax a few year ago and we sat beside each other for several hours and chatted at Frank Hoyle’s booth.
We did have a lively and friendly exchange back and forth on email for many years. And when this site was built Jack contributed many great pics which appeared in various posts below.
I did not know much about his personal life so cannot provide a detailed obituary but I want to share with many in our community that Jack will be missed.
I am hoping to be able to get to the Charlottetown BNAPex convention in a couple weeks and look forward to meeting many of you there. The Chairmanship of the Squared Circle Study Group is being taken over by Joe Smith who hopes to have a good discussion about the future of the study group.
The Squared circle study Group will be meeting at the Rodd Royalty Inn on Sunday, Sept 1st at 3:00 pm as I understand.
