Passionate about future of Creemore, businessman and publisher dies
By Michael GENNINGS, The Connection, Fri., May 5th, 2006
Gordon BADGER, a charismatic character known for his business skills and community involvement in the Creemore area, has died.
He was 69.
BADGER died Sunday in Ireland, while on honeymoon with his wife, Marilyn. No details regarding funeral or memorial arrangements were available at press time.
Jeff SHEARER, publisher of On The Bay Magazine, based in Collingwood, was a friend of BADGER's. He said that BADGER died in his sleep.
He noted that BADGER and his new wife had just married about a month ago in Florida. The visit to Ireland followed a stop in Venice, Italy where the couple renewed their vows, he said.
SHEARER spoke highly of BADGER in an interview with The Connection.
"He was a smart, big thinker and passionate about the community," SHEARER recalled.
The son of a grocery store owner turned United Church Minister, BADGER was an accountant who for many years worked on the business side of the publishing industry.
Among his ventures was a partnership in Comac Communications, which published for a time Homemaker's Magazine.
BADGER also published the now defunct Creemore Star and a number of other titles, including the Elmvale Lance, Stayner Star and Wasaga Star. The newspapers ceased publishing in the 1990s.
His other business pursuits included real estate projects in Canada and abroad. One of his Canadian partnerships was the Woodland Heights residential development adjacent to Deerhurst Resort near Huntsville.
Clearview Township mayor Fran SAINSBURY said yesterday she was saddened to learn of BADGER's death.
"I liked Gordon -- he was feisty but he also had a good sense of humour. When Gordon got involved in something he saw it through to the end."
SAINSBURY said that she and BADGER met in about 1998 when the two -- the mayor was not in office -- were fighting to stop the Creemore sewer project.
"He had some concerns, as everyone else did, about the sewer project here. He had the same concerns I did, build it and they will come."
BADGER also successfully lobbied the township in 2000 to make improvements to the then proposed official plan.
Last year, he appeared at public meetings to raise concerns about the scope of the Alliance Homes project proposed for Creemore.
SAINSBURY pointed out that before getting involved in something BADGER was careful to research both sides of the issue, a quality the mayor said she admired.
SAINSBURY noted that BADGER was instrumental in helping raise funds for the library and arena in the village. She added he touched the community in a number of other ways.
"He was very deeply connected to the Creemore area," she said.
One of the things BADGER enjoyed doing when in the area on Friday was gathering for lunch with Friends and acquaintances interested in the local political scene, SHEARER said.
"You could best describe Gordon as charming, with a bigger than life presence, passionate and he could be gregarious in an eloquent way. He was well-connected and an aggressive, aggressive businessman," he added.
Among the high profile people BADGER knew was former Ontario Liberal premier David Peterson.
When not in the Creemore area, BADGER enjoyed staying at his home in the Dominican Republic or at the cottage on Lake Joseph.
"I think this is a great loss to our community," said Creemore area resident Noël BATES.
BATES and BADGER knew each other for a number of years and a dined together during the Friday lunch/political discussion meetings.
"He was quite an interesting character and one of those that make Creemore an interesting place to live. We're saddened by his death."
BADGER, who lost his last wife, Vicky, to emphysema in June of 2002 and his daughter Martha at 36 in 2000 due to a heart seizure, is survived by his sons Gregg, Matthew, Storey and daughter Lawrie.
