Greginframe 2

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father and grandfather, Gregory George Balcom on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
Greg was born April 9, 1962 in Liverpool to the late Robert and Rachel (Thistle) Balcom.
Greg worked for the South Shore Regional School Board for the past 29 years where he met and worked with so many amazing people. Greg loved the outdoors and being close to nature. You could often find him kayaking up the lake or casting his fishing line waiting for the next big catch. Anyone who knew our dad would know his love for hockey. Greg was a huge Montreal Canadiens fan and would challenge anyone who thought differently. Greg was a goal tender from an early age playing at various levels. After his hockey career, he took up ball hockey and was honoured to be part of “The Wings” ball team. Later he was a volunteer for Queens County Minor Hockey and was proud to follow his son from rink to rink.
Greg is survived by his children Leanne (Lucas) of Liverpool, Andrew (Jamie) of Eastern Passage. Stepchildren Ashley (Nick) Fisher of Liverpool, Brandon Fisher. Grandson Silas and step- grandsons Avery and Jackson. His siblings Jerry (Cathy) Balcom, Alberta; Sharon Batchalor of Milton, Dianne (Gerald) Hanley of Milton; Gail Balcom of BC; Beverly Balcom of Cape Breton and his fur baby Chaos.
Besides his parents, Greg was predeceased by his brother Robert “Bobby” Balcom, his sister Anna Mosher and his beloved best friend “Boo”.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, where a celebration of Greg’s life will be held on Friday, February 21, 2020 from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. with prayer service at 3:30 p.m. Donations may be made to S.H.A.I.D. Animal Shelter or to Queens Minor Hockey Association. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com.

Dear Diane, Sharon Gail, Beverly & Jerry And Extended Families;
Francis & I Are Very Sorry To Hear Of Greg’s Passing. We did Not Know Greg That Well But He Was A Neighbour Just Houses From Us. Cherish All Those Fantastic Memories Of Your Brother And Keep Them Close To Your Heart. From What I’ve Read, You Have A lot To Be Proud Of. When I Went To The School To Pick Up My Grand-Daughter, Greg Was Always There Working Like A Trooper And Always With A Smile. I’m Still Not Sure If He Remembered Me Or Not. It’s Not Easy When You Loose Any Of Your Siblings. I Know, I’ve Lost My Sister (Linda) Soon To Be 9 Years Ago, And I Miss Her Terribly.
May God Wrap His Loving Arms Around Each & Everyone Of You And Let The Healing Begin. And May Greg Now Rest In Peace!!!!

To the Balcom family: It is with a heavy heart that I convey our deepest sorrow to you all. Greg loved his job at LRHS. The kids and teachers were a huge part of his beloved family. Always smiling, helpful, on the go, and never idol. HIs job ethics and how he looked after the high school is a testimony to his professionalism. Everyone that knew him is mourning his loss, I know he would be humbled. Look after each other and remines often about the Good Times you all had with Greg. Blessings

Condolence from Barry and Bonnie on February 18th, 2020 2:51 pm

To the Balcom family, Take peace in these words

I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Your dad ,grandfather will always be remembered.

My thoughts are with all of those touched by Greg over the years. I haven’t seen him in a long time with the exception of once just a few years ago. I remember him when I was younger as a happy and cool uncle that I wanted to be around. From reading these messages it seems as though many others got that same feeling from him. Rest In Peace Uncle Greg

Condolence from Allan MacInnis on February 18th, 2020 6:40 pm

More than 30 years ago Greg and I played cards, hunted, and played hockey together. We played hockey 3-4 times per week from Lunenburg to Shelburne…with him in net he always gave us an extra edge and a chance to win. My deepest sympathy to Greg’s family. From one of the original “Milton Braves” hockey team members…you will be missed brother.

Forever a Liverpool Wing .

Condolence from Ian Kent on February 18th, 2020 7:36 pm

When I graduated from LRHS, I considered Greg a friend. With an active student council, we made his work life extra busy and chaotic but he never once made me feel it. Always there to help, no matter how big the mess, how crazy the idea – Greg was there, with a smile, even keel. He never made me feel like a kid.

I hadn’t seen Greg in over decade when I moved home to start my family and my teaching career. My first day subbing at LRHS, I was cruising down the hallway and I hear his voice, “They let you be a teacher?!” I laughed so hard and doubled back to his office for a quick yarn. Like no time had passed at all.

Leanne and family, your Dad was a good man. He will be missed and remember fondly.

Condolence from Scott Norman on February 18th, 2020 7:48 pm

Leanne and Andrew I can’t believe I’m writing this I just talked to Greg a couple weeks ago.Every time we met up we would catch up on the news and then we would go back to the old days playing hockey. He always had positive things to say about everything and his smile would make everyone smile . Hold on to your memories I’m sure there are many . Be strong and God Bless

Condolence from Greg Scott on February 21st, 2020 9:53 am

Our deepest condolences to Greg’s family. I spent 6 years working with Greg at LRHS. He was always willing to help the staff and students. He was an amazing, giving person who had a great deal of energy and will truly be missed in the community. It was a pleasure to have met him. We used to love to discuss old hockey stories. Both of us used to be goaltenders. A sad loss for all of us.

Love,

The Scott Family

There are no words to help heal the pain. It is very unfortunate that something this devastating has to happen to show the affects a person has on a community…..he was so well known by teens and adults. Keep all your memories close to your heart, share all your great stories you have with one another. Sending prayers to the family.
