DONALD GEORGE GILLESPIE (published on December 22, 2007)



DONALD GEORGE GILLESPIE 1935 2007 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Don Gillespie on Friday, December 14, 2007 at the Grace Hospital at the age of 72 years. Remaining to forever cherish Don's memory are his wife Rooney Weir; daughter, Leslie Hoffman (Lorne); son, Bruce Gillespie (Dawn) and their family and sister, Arlene Henrickson. Don grew up in the west end of Winnipeg. He overcame many obstacles to become a loving husband and father. Although his education was limited he was a wise, caring person. Don was dedicated to his work and enjoyed baseball and lacrosse. In his later years he enjoyed traveling. He will be remembered for his good sense of humour, constant teasing, and compassion toward others. In compliance with Don's wishes no formal funeral service will be held. A private family gathering has taken place. Don wanted to thank everyone who supported him, especially his special friends Gordon Whitey Larson and Bert Reesby. In lieu of flowers, as an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made in Don's memory to a charity of one's choice.
