Frederick Arthur GILPIN

With heavy hearts we sadly announce

the very sudden unexpected passing of our Dad

GILPIN, Frederick Arthur

October 16, 1928 – July 2, 2008

Dad was predeceased by his wife Thelma. Survived by his children: Fred, Penny, Connie and Trudy; his sister Pat; his granddaughters: Cassie, Vicky and Cholie; and his companion Claire Martens and her family.

We invite you to join us on Friday, July 11, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. in a service to celebrate his life and remember all the ways he touched our lives. Pastor Fred Massey at First Memorial Funeral Chapel, 1720 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, will conduct this special time.

Internment will follow at Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens, 2347 Cedar Road. Refreshments will immediately follow.

In lieu of fl owers, donations can be made to the heart foundation or the cancer society in memory of our Mom and Dad.

He never judged a book by its cover.
