With full hearts and much love we bid a temporary farewell to Robert Matthew (Bob) Gilson Jr., secure in the knowledge that families are eternal and with anticipation of a joyous reunion at a time appointed of the Lord.
Bob, age 76 at his passing, is lovingly remembered by his wife of 56 years, Marilyn, their four sons, daughters in-law, 19 grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and 2 sisters. His parents and one brother predeceased Bob.
A Memorial service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel at 4303-20 Avenue, Edmonton at 1:00 pm Saturday, July 12, 2014.
The family is grateful to the staff of the Choice Good Samaritan Dr. Gerald Zetter Care Centre for their kind care and support of Bob and the family. We would ask that in lieu of flowers donations be directed to the Choice Zetter Care Centre, 9649 71 Avenue NW, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 5J2 and/or the Alzheimer Society of Alberta, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5H 4K1
