It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gerard Elam Gillingham at 60 years of age on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.

Left to mourn his passing with fond and loving memories are his wife, Katherine Kelly-Gillingham; children, Kristie-Ann (Alan) Kirsch, John, Isabella, Jessica and Ross; sister, Jacqueline King; godmother, Ann (Frank) Blake; mother-in-law, Geraldine Kelly; sisters-in-laws, Shelly (Andrew) Burt, and Juanita (Frank) Beason; brother-in-law, Adam Kelly; nieces and nephews, Jonita (Jeff) Forbes, Dr. John Paul (Laura) King, Jason (Darlene) Skiffington, Kayla(Justin) Brenton, Johnathon Beason, Jayden Beason, Alissa Burt, Jeremy Burt, and Jessica Kelly; great-nieces and great-nephews, Alex, Bailey, Ashlynn, Caiden, Adelyn, little baby Jack and Oliver who called him Papa; as well as a very large circle of other relatives and  great friends.

He is predeceased by his parents, Elam and Phyllis (nee Loftus) Gillingham; father-in-law, John Kelly; and brother-in-law, Jack King. 

Gerry was a wonderful, kind-hearted man who was always there to lend a hand and whose home was always open. His big eyes and soft smile were always waiting for you at the kitchen table. His love for being in front of the stove cooking up a scoff was one of his trademarks. He loved Sunday drives, being outdoors in the woods, being with friends but most of all he loved his family.  

Gerry will be remembered and forever loved by all who knew him.
