We remember laughter around colourful campfires, both of which he initiated. He loved and was much loved back.

I don’t honestly know where to start. I could easily go on forever about Mr G. and all the memories with him. From card tricks to card games to rafting down the falls. I’ve always called him Mr G but he has always been a Grandpa to me and my sister. I am so glad that my children know exactly who Mr G is, and got to spend Christmas, thanksgiving and other family events with him.
Mrs G, I’m so sorry for your loss. And I am very sorry we can’t be with you during
this time. I know you will have the support you need by your side.

Nadine, Adam, Carter, Isabelle and family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. Although I did not know ‘Adam’s Grampa’ I have enjoyed hearing some of Nadine’s fun stories about him. He sounded like a wonderful man. May you find peace and comfort in your cherished memories of him, as well as in the support of family and friends.

Rest in peace Mr. Gillmour.

With sympathy, Tricia & Jim van Schagen and family.

It is with great sadness that we have lost the patriarch of our family in the passing of “Mr. G.” He was a true gentleman who shared his wisdom, kindness, love, laughter and of course his magic! Our lives have been richer with Mr. G. in it. Thanks for the memories. We love you always 🎩 ❤️
