Gilbert M. Gamache – Obituary –

January 9, 1953 – April 15, 2024

It is with unexpected sadness that we learn of the death of our father Gilbert (Gil).

Predeceased by parents Eva & Aime, brother Robert and sister Monique Macdonald.

He leaves to mourn his wife of 48 years, Jani, and sons Andy and Daniel. Brother-in-law Robert Schultz (Vikki), 1 sister, 5 brothers and a very large family and many friends.

Gilbert took great pride in his time with Army cadets and progressed quickly. There he learned his respect for firearms, sense of order and following the chain of command.

His working career took him to northern BC, Sechelt, Yukon, Northwest Territories and as far north as the Beauford Sea and the Lower Mainland.

But to really get to know Gilbert, you had to play a round of golf with him. Member in good standing at Mission Golf and Country Club for almost 40 years. It was his passion. Whether it was Hawaii, Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada or BC, the golf clubs were always within reach. If you didn’t find him on the links, he was watching golf on TV.

Unfortunately he was too ill to watch the final round of the Master, but he insisted we record it anyway.

He hated playing slow (you know who you are) “So for @#$$% you gotta pick up the pace!!!!”
