Gilbert, Richard It is with great sadness in our hearts we announce the passing of Richard Murray Gilbert. Richard was an amazing father, grandfather, uncle, husband and best friend to Lucy Gilbert (deceased), his son Greg (Sue), his daughters Maria and Karen, his grandchildren Jessica (Ben), Matthew and Richard, his brother in- law Angelo Basso as well as his brothers Boyd (Gladys) and Robert (Susan) and their families. Richard was the head industrial engineer for Meritor, retiring in 1997 and then owner of Aquapure water systems for which he operated for many years. Richard was an amazing man, strong, loyal, kind and was the first to greet anyone with a smile. He made an impression on everyone he met, always looking to be a guiding light for anyone who needed it, he made everyone feel safe accepted and comfortable no matter what. We would like to take the opportunity to thank the many individuals who supported Richard in his last few years as well as the staff at Trillium health partners cardiac wing. At this time we will be postponing the funeral and celebration of life, we will be sending out information in regards to these events once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
