August 29, 1948 – July 18, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Gordon Gillis on July 18th 2022 at the age of 73 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
David was a commercial fisherman and fished with his stepfather most of his working life, all over the B.C Coast.
He shared so many ocean adventures with fellow fishermen.
David’s kind heart and sweet nature is something that we all loved about him. David passed away peacefully at his home while listening to his favourite music, surrounded by his family and dear friend Doris.
Pre-deceased by his father William, mother Isabel and nephew Rudy.
He leaves behind his stepfather John McLeod, 3 loving sisters: Carol (Henry), Betty (Art), Pam (Ray) and his best buddy, his dog Bently. He also had numerous nieces and nephews, whom he highly adored.
Be proud David, you can now rest pain free. You were a standup man and gentleman, who on your own, made your way through life’s hardships, unto peace in the afterlife. A peace that you so deserve. We want to thank all of David’s neighbours for all their love and support.
Until we meet again!
“We all love you so much”. Obituary
