Gilbert Signey Birks

BIRKS, Gilbert (Gil) Sidney

1928-2012

Gilbert Birks passed peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox, B.C.

Predeceased by his loving wife Merle, son Brian and granddaughter Faith, he is lovingly remembered by his daughter Heather, and son Paul, as well as his many nephews, cousins and friends.

We would be honoured to meet and thank the special people, whose friendship our Dad cherished at a memorial service to be held at St. John the Divine Anglican Church, Courtenay, B.C. on Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 1:00pm with a reception to follow.

Our most sincere gratitude to Dr. R. Potter-Cogan, the nurses at St. Joseph’s and the support workers at the V.I.H.A, for the exceptional care and support they gave to Gil and his family. An extra special thank you to Ken and Alison, the world’s best neighbours, for all that they have given to our Dad and his family.

In lieu of flowers, a small contribution to the Senior’s Centre in Courtenay/Comox, or the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
