In Memoriam

Vincent Gillon


Vincent Gillon passed away peacefully at Haliburton Highlands Health Services Friday March 16, 2012 in his 70th year. Beloved husband of the late Helen Gillon. Loving father to Robert (Kirsty) and Eleanor (William). Vincent leaves behind one grandchild, Carson. Cherished son of the late John and Alexandra Gillon. Loving brother to the late Betty McArdle and survived by brothers Jack (Catherine) and Paul (Jenny). He is lovingly remembered by his many nephews and nieces and his extended family. Vincent was born in Gourock, Scotland and moved to Canada as a young man. He is leaving behind many long time friends he met throughout his life: at the MTO in Toronto where he worked, as a member of the Brampton Scottish Club, as past president of the Clans and Scottish Societies of Canada and as a member of the Clan MacLean. While living in Haliburton, Vincent helped run the Head of the Lakes Bed and Breakfast with his late wife Helen. He was a member of the Haliburton Highland Games committee and member of the Haliburton Lions club. Vincent enjoyed sharing stories and knowledge of all things Scottish; he loved horses, golf and photography. Vincent will be sadly missed by many. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Huntington’s Society of Canada or the Haliburton Highlands Health Services would be appreciated by the family.
