GILMOUR, JOHN (JACK) LAURENCE
October 29, 1933 – December 9, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Gilmour, at the age of 78, due to the complications of breast cancer. He was predeceased by his wife, Lenny in 2002.
Jack was born in Ladysmith and lived most of his life in the Nanaimo area. He was an avid sports fan, with a special love for lacrosse & hockey. Jack worked for many years for BC Tel, and then driving truck, hauling everything from logs to fuel to heavy equipment all over North America. In his later years, Jack could be found at the arenas & fields, during practices & games, watching his grandson, Jordan & his teammates play lacrosse & soccer.
Jack will be deeply missed by his daughter, Brande (Shane) Terris & grandson, Jordan of Nanaimo, and his sister, Olive (Jack) Parker of Qualicum, as well as many close family & friends.
Special thanks to Dr Njalsson, Dr. Allen & the Victoria Cancer Centre, Dr. Most & the Nanaimo Cancer Clinic, and the staff at Nanaimo Serenity Lodge.
At Jack’s request, there will be no service. Donations, in his memory, may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation.
