To know and be a friend of Gil was a blessing. He will be greatly missed by all who enjoy nature and I’m sure by many others. To my friend Gil Rest in Peace. My memories of our weekend visits will last a life time.
A wonderful soul who will be truly missed.

Gilbert attended our seniors group every Thursday where he developed some good friendships with others in the group. He was an active participant – once displaying his woodcarving on a “hobbies”” day and taking the one day bus trips. We remember Gilbert fondly – we know his struggle with cancer is now over and we commit his eternity to God who “”carved”” out Gilbert’s life.”

Thirteen years ago we met Gil, the stories he told, the appreciation of the birds and wildlife. Spending the time with our then young children teaching them while on nature walks in Trillium Trails….We are thankful and grateful for time we shared. A true gentleman. We will miss him dearly. Rest in peace Gil.
