July 24, 1971 – August 27, 2018

Gilmour, David John “Dave” – July 24, 1971 – Aug 27, 2018 – Loved dearly by his “one and only” Laurie and his girls Kalea and Maddy. Blessed with a lifetime of memories is his mom Karen Crewson (nee Llewellyn), sister Shannon and brother Joshua. Predeceased by his dad John Crewson. Loving son-in-law to Dave and Jenny Mielke, brother-in-law to Tim and the late Ken Mielke, and Jen (James) and Brenda (Rob). Grandson to Esther Llewellyn. Predeceased by his grandparents Lorne Llewellyn, Jack and Rita Gilmour, Ed Crewson, and Doris and Bob Putman. “Special Dad” to Matt and Mickey. David was blessed with many aunts,  uncles and cousins but they all know they held their own spot in his heart and life. To his baseball, UFC and fishing buddies, he loved you like family but I’m sure you already know that. David wore his heart on his sleeve, exactly where everyone could see it. Friends will be received by the family on Friday evening from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas. Cremation has taken place.  If you so wish, donations to the Canadian Red Cross – Violence, Bullying & Abuse Prevention would be appreciated by the family.

    Hemingway once wrote: “There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man’s life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave.” My dearest Gilly, the legacy you leave is one of loyalty and friendship, true friendship without reservation or conditions. Whether cage side in Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax or Toronto, from the same side of the chalk line at Turner Park or sitting across from one another sharing cigars and sipping whiskey, you allowed us all to be ourselves. To Laurie, Kalea, Maddy, his family and everyone else who was touched by Dave’s gregariousness, my heart goes out to you. Please know that I share in your loss. Gilly, you will be missed but rest easy for those you have touched have been blessed and we strive to make ours the unmistakable and unconditional love that was yours. Love Ronny

  • Your Baseball Family

    The time has come for parting,
    And our time is at an end.

    You had your shining moments,
    Upon this life’s darkened stage,

    And left us only thoughts of bliss,
    Of joyful things to reminisce

    Farewell words too often part,
    And leave, with sorrow, aching hearts

    With final wave all disappears
    Beneath the hush of silent tears

    In our memory you will always be
    Our baseball family is left to grieve

    Please know that our baseball family feel your pain and sorrow,
    Dave was a fabulous friend, team mate and will be missed terribly.
    Not only by his playing friends but many umpires as well.

    Our deepest sympathy to Laurie, Kalea & Maddy, his mom Karen, his sister Shannon & his brother Joshua & families. Keep your memories near and dear to your heart, they will help you at this most difficult time… Until we meet again “Gilly” God’s speed.

    The is an empty space on our lineup card today. The passion for the game you always showed was the reason most of us were proud to step over those white lines with you. The campaigns against bullying and other issues of our yiuth has lost one of their biggest supporters. You will be missed Gilly, by all those that came in contact with you. Those of us that remain will try and Fear the Fighter in all that we do. Thoughts and prayers for your wife and your daughters.

  • Shan
