He was also the loving grandfather to 12 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Gord, the eldest of nine children, was born in Chapeau, Quebec to Martin and Edna Conroy and moved to Bluewater with his bride in 1947. He was a strong role model and big brother to his siblings and is survived by Francis, Joan, Marilyn and Norma. He is reunited now with his parents and siblings Mickey, Bernard, Bea and Ken.   He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews who respected and loved him. Gord had several jobs over the years and worked at the Blue Water Bridge Authority, retiring after 25 years of service. He spoke of his last job often and his many experiences there.
