Gordon Crookston

It is with heavy hearts that Orléans Little League has learned of the passing of its past president, Gordon Crookston. He passed away on January 11th, 2023 in Toronto.
 
He is survived by his wife Rose and two sons Jonathan and Jeremy.
 
Gordon was the President of Orléans Little League for the better part of three decades. His hard work and dedication to the organization and community were second to none. We will work hard to ensure his legacy continues for many years. 
 
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rose and the family. Gordon was a good man. He will be missed.
 
Rest in peace my friend. Until we meet again.
