Fitzroy Anthony Gordon Dr. Love TIES THE KNOT


A longtime friend and associate of Spyros Peter Goudas Fitzroy Anthony Gordon tied the knot to Marvette Marjorie Powell on September 9, 2007, at the Toronto East Seventh-Day Adventist Church. 

The ceremony was very well attended due to his popularity within the community since he is the radio broadcaster for the Dr. Love show on CHIN Radio, additionally; he is also a sportscaster. 

Fitzroy has been a personal friend of Mr. Spyros Peter Goudas for many years.

He conducted many radio interviews including, one after the Entrepreneur of the Year Award of Mr. Goudas IN 1993. 


   One night in 1992 at around 2 am Peter Spyros Goudas after he had a glass of         brandy he felt talkative about how an why he broke his leg in Jan 14, 1979,     including the effect and the outcome. It is a sad story but also very inspiring.

   Just a reminder after the accident the bank closed the business down and yet 14     years later he won the Entrepreneur award

Fitzroy Anthony Gordon Also, he has used the tape of the 1979 accident on his radio program several times at Christmas time in open line format as an inspiration to the radio audience and to stimulate comments and discussion. 

A feature at the ceremony was a table set up with four plates containing items to be sampled because life is made up of these flavors: Sour, Bitter, Hot and Sweet. 

The Pastor, David Rogers, demonstrated in a comedy format the effects of these flavors.

The funny part was the representation of the hot part was Mr. Goudas Chili Powder which was very hot and the effect showed immediately on Fitzroy because he immediately asked for something to cool him down. 

The reference to sweet was depicted by honey; upon tasting it the bride and groom stated it was very sweet. Of course, this was Mr. Goudas Honey. 

Reverend Audley James performed a very good service; he was very professional.

Needless to say, Reverend James is a friend of Mr. Goudas since the early days back in the 1970,s when prior to becoming a minister was an Inspector for the Food and Drug Administration, in today,s language, (CFIA) Canadian Food Inspection Agency and happened to be inspecting Mr. Spyros Peter Goudas premises on a regular basis. 

Overall, the ceremony was excellent, the bride was beautiful as expected, and from all of us at Goudas organizations, and especially Mr. Spyros Peter Goudas, we wish them all the happiness in the world. 

Fitzroy is working on the CRTC to obtain a license for his own radio station.

We also wish him success in this venture.
