GILBERT, Peter David - December 2, 1946 - September 15, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter David Gilbert.
Peter passed away suddenly, in his home, on Thursday, September 15, 2022 in his 75th year.
He was a loving husband to Louise of 51 years.
He was a beloved father of Jeff (Nicole) and Natalie (Adam;) and adored grandfather of Emmersyn, Parker, Mikale, Mckenna and Marcus.
He was predeceased by his father, James Gilbert; and mother, Kathleen Gilbert. He was a loving brother to Peggy (Brian), Leslie (Joe), Wendy (David), Judy (Bruce) and the late Michael Gilbert.
Peter was a dear brother-in-law to Pauline (Mike), Pierre (Kathy), Charlie (Jolene) and Lynn (James). He will be forever missed by his many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He will be remembered fondly by extended family and friends. Throughout his lifetime, he volunteered with many different organizations, including the Boy Scouts of Canada, the City of Pickering library, the Hockey Association, and the Provincial Government.
Peter was an active member of the legion handing out poppies at the local supermarket, and also sang with the BarberShop men's choir.
Many people will remember Peter driving around Pickering in one of his many classic cars with a cigar in his mouth.
If you needed a car part, he was the man to find it! Peter loved his family and friends more than anything and always did everything he could to ensure they were taken care of. He will be missed dearly by all.
The family would like to thank all of the various doctors, nurses and PSWs that looked after Peter over the years.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the Arthritis Society Canada.
A Celebration of Life will take place for family and friends on Friday, October 21st at the Pickering Legion 606 from 2-6 p.m.
