The Family – We were very sorry to hear of Gordon’s passing. He was always a good friend when I lived in Liverpool and the one that really made me appreciate the taste of a good scotch. I hated it at first but he was the one that convinced me to keep at it and I did finally acquire the taste and enjoy it to this day. Thanks Gordon.

To Gordon Peverill’s family: I was very sorry to read of your beloved Gordon’s passing. In the early 1960’s I was in the first student militia group in Liverpool. Gordon was the RSM and I remember him as one of our most popular and well respected leaders of that group. He was always kind and a true gentleman. I am sure he is enjoying his time in heaven with our Lord. RIP Major Peverill!
Dear Anne and family:
Please accept my sincere condolences at the passing of Gordon. He was a wonderful family man and a great contributor to his church and community. I know he will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all who knew him. May God go with you as you move forward.
I am sending condolences to you and your family for my parents, Ross (cousin) and Marilyn Daniels who were very saddened to hear the news of Gordon’s passing. My mum recalls hearing a story of how Gordon, in his young years, peddled his bicycle from Yarmouth to Shubenacadie to visit his Aunt Maggie and Uncle Arthur Daniels and Maggie making the comment that they would never know when he would just show up in their yard! Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Ross, Marilyn and girls
I was shocked to hear of Gordon’s passing.I had some nice chats with him at Rosedale when I visited Elmer there.I know you,Anne and the family will miss him.He was a very kind man and loved you dearly.My sincere condolences.
My prayers and sympathy on the loss of a well respected man. I knew him through the Lunenburg- Queens United Baptist Association. He showed kindness and concern on an occasion when I was having problems with my car when at a Convention meeting in New Brunswick and his help allieveated my worries. May the presence of the Holy Spirit comfort the family.

Dear Anne,Dale and Family
We are so sorry for your loss. I have many memories of Gordon over the years. I first met him when I joined the Liverpool Militia 105 Howitzer Division out of the old Armories in high school. He was strict but fair. He instilled respect and motivation to a group of young boys which I still look back on today. His words of wisdom on the board of Long Lake Camp during the years was greatly appreciated. Look back and treasure the many memories and the people he touched. Rest in peace Friend.
So sorry to hear of Gordon’s passing.
Our condolences to Gordon’s family at this sad time.Always a gentleman with a smile for everyone. Lynn & Steve

To the Peverill Family –
I knew Gordon and a gentleman several decades ago in the Militia. He was a well-respected and very competent officer. We met again when I joined the Army Cadet League where I once again saw him serving his community and passing on his knowledge. He served his country well.
May the good times you remember help to ease the sorrow that you must feel now. May he rest in peace.
