Gilbert, John Cameron “Johnny” – It is with great sadness that the family of Johnny Gilbert, age 72, announces his passing on April 1, 2019. He is survived by his mother, Lillian; daughter, Patricia; son, Jason; grandson, Steven; granddaughters, Candace and Courtney; great-grandchildren, Avery, Lucas, and Ellie Ray; sisters, Carol (Al) and Paulette (Bruce); brothers, Allan (Jennifer) and Lorne (Dorothy); as well as nephews, David, Tommy, Brian, Ryan, Robert, Matthew; and niece, Elaine.
Johnny was a drywall taper for the last 50 years, one of the best in the business. He loved attending family gatherings where he was often the brunt of a joke which he truly enjoyed. He loved his cars and attending car shows and was known to have a heavy foot. Johnny was the one we all knew we could count on to be there in any time of need. We all love and will miss him greatly.
He was predeceased by his father, Lorne; wife, Leona; brother, Clinton. Cremation has taken place and graveside service will be held Monday, April 8th at 1 p.m. in Dartmouth Memorial Gardens, Main Street, Dartmouth.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
