Condolence from Patti Tasko on January 11th, 2022 11:38 AM

Condolences to the Gilmour family. My parents (Madalene and Lewis Tasko) were friends with Ab and Alice for many years. I think they were the first people we knew who had a snowmobile and it was always quite exciting when they zoomed up to the house on a dark winter night. Ab was a funny guy and we will remember him with a smile on our faces, especially when we think about how much he loved butter tarts.

Marg, Liz and Alan, Pat, Paul and Marilyn, Alanna and Bailey, David and family.

We are sad to hear of Ab passing. We have many fond memories at the horse races and when our parents hung out with their group of friends going to dances and card playing. Ab always had a story to tell, he will be missed by many. Cherish your memories. Our deepest condolences.

Condolence from Liz Hodgins & Alan Gates on January 11th, 2022 4:45 PM

To Ab’s Family,

Our sincere condolences to Ab’s siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews. I have found memories of Ab doing dishes in the basement in Holy Trinity church, he always had a story to tell. May you Rest In Peace as you are now back with Alice.

Condolence from Don and Ruth Ann Cunningham on January 11th, 2022 5:10 PM

Condolences to the Gilmour family on Ab’s passing. Ab and Alice were great neighbours. Always enjoyed Ab’s sense of humour. He enjoyed a good laugh. Ab and Alice will both be greatly missed.

Don and Ruth Ann Cunningham

Condolence from Mary Lou Tasko on January 11th, 2022 5:40 PM

Our condolences to the Gilmour family. As my sister Patti noted, Ab and Alice were good friends with Mom and Dad (Madalene and Lewis), and were frequent visitors to our home when we were kids. Ab was funny as hell and always had a very loud story to tell, much to the chagrin of Alice! No doubt there will be lots of stories told about Ab (and Alice) as the family says goodbye.

Condolence from Nancey Taylor on January 11th, 2022 8:54 PM

We always enjoyed our conversations with Ab and Alice
At the races or the grocery story.
RIP Ab
Sam and Nancey Taylor

Condolence from Judy and Don Squire on January 12th, 2022 11:31 AM

Our condolences to all the family. Ab and Alice were a fixture on the side road where the farm was always their pride with at least one “old mare” to watch in the orchard.
Judy (Morgan) and Don Squire

Condolence from Jim and Helen Hearn on January 12th, 2022 12:01 PM

Our sincere condolences to all of Ab’s loved ones. He’ll be entertaining all those around him in heaven with his stories.

Condolence from Martin/Jo Anne Clarke on January 12th, 2022 11:38 PM

To All The Gilmour Family :
We are very sorry to hear of Ab’s passing. We remember many times when they would stop at the store to get gasoline and Ab would come in to pay and Alice would stay out in the truck /car waiting but he’d get telling us a story and she’d get tired waiting on him and get out … open the store door “Ab we got to get home for supper “ no matter what time of day ! We sure had some good laughs !
Now they can have supper together again !
Martin & Jo Anne

Condolence from Paul and Sarah Vanneste on January 13th, 2022 9:44 AM

Our condolences to the Gilmour Family. Ab and Alice would always stop for a quick chat while cutting the grass on Clandeboye Drive.

Condolence from Sue Hodgins on January 13th, 2022 1:36 PM

Sincere condolences to Ab’s family. I’ll always remember Ab & Alice with fond memories as when I was younger I played a lot of euchre with them, my parents (Marion & Roscoe) and Al & Liz Scott. I always remember as well my father sharing the story with us as kids that Ab & Alice eloped the night of my parents wedding and ended up at the same hotel because they say their names registered. May they rest in peace and cherish all the wonderful memories you have.
