G. Gordon Tweedy was an amazing human being. He loved fiercely, forgave easily, and helped many on this crazy road called life.
Gord was proudly the first UNB Law graduate called to the Bar of Prince Edward Island on November 28, 1963.
Although law was his vocation - helping others, wood working, his tractor, his family and hockey were his passions.
Gord played hockey until he was 80 and was the biggest UNB Reds hockey fan ever.
In his middle years, Gordie started the lawyer referral/assistance program in PEI and beyond – taking it global without the internet.
Gord was a lifelong Rotarian and lived their motto “Service Above Self”. In honour of his father’s Rotary service, he started the George J. Tweedy Service Award and even crafted the award itself.
