Gilbert Moise Marcotte

December 11, 1946 to

November 30, 2008

Gilbert left this earth after a short battle with cancer. He was surrounded by

family and friends and will be missed by so many. He started his early career with B.C. Ferries, working as an engine room oiler, working through all the ranks and retiring as Chief Engineer.

He lived his life to the fullest and had no regrets. He was a proud father and grandfather and was always there for anyone that needed his help. Gilbert leaves behind Georgina and their two children Don (Tami) grand children, Reaghan, Benjamin and Timothy, and Collette (Sam) grandchildren, James and Stephanie. He also leaves his brother Ed (Lucille) and

family, his sister Caroline (Robert) and family, his sister Linda (Henry) and family, his brother Frank, and his sister Samantha (Ron) and family. At Gilbert’s request there will be no funeral but there will be a celebration of his life at Saltspring Island Rod & Gun Club on December 13/08 at 2:00pm.

Please bring your stories and jokes to tell at the last Choir Practice for Gilbert.

BIG HUGE special thanks to

Alana Watkinson for making his last days so comfortable for him, as well as all the doctors and nurses at

Lady Minto Hospital.
