ROBERT HUGH GILMOUR
February 5, 1975 – January 6, 2024
Its with immense sadness, that we announce the tragic loss of our Father, brother, uncle and friend, on January 6, 2024 at the age of 48.
Rob was predeceased by his father, Robert Gilmour and mother Wendy Gilmour, his grandparents Gordon and Barbara Laing, and his uncle Gordon Laing. Robert leaves behind to forever cherish his memory, his sons, Hayden and Mason Gilmour, and his stepdaughter Tia, whom he always thought of as his own, and their mother Brenda who shared 13 years with Robert. His sisters Terri and Sherri Gilmour, nieces and nephews, Kelly, Baily, Brooke, Dredan, Heaven, Nevaeh & Emily, and his great nephew Keagan, as well as many other aunts’ uncles and cousins.
Rob grew up in St. James where he resided most of his life and made some awesome friends. He always had a strong work ethic, working with Transcontinental Printing until 2009 when he set his sights on bigger things. He set out for Alberta where he worked for Suncor as a scaffolder, within a year he was a lead hand with a crew of his own and settled in Edmonton with his family. He often described his time in Edmonton as the Best Years of his life. In 2015 he returned to Winnipeg, where he worked in construction and demolition, as well as self taught woodwork. Rob loved spending time with his family and enjoyed the outdoors, camping fishing, being in the mountains, beach days and even a little gardening. Rob was an easy-going guy with a big heart! Who lived his life for his boys, they meant the world to him.
A funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Thursday, February 1, 2024 at 603 Wellington Crescent.
They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal. But neither time nor reason will change the way we feel. You will be so incredibly missed. Thank you for all you’ve done.
Rest Easy Rob
