Obituary of Ronald Gilpin
Ronald "Ron" James Gilpin (1943-2019) passed away (set sail) peacefully on July 6, 2019 surrounded by family and close friends. Predeceased by his parents and then his "first mate" Shirley (nee Gill) in 2017.
Ron was a long-time member and Commodore of the Toronto Humber Yacht Club and owner/operator of Toronto Bay Marine. Ron loved being on his boat, working on boats and tinkering with boat and car motors. He looked forward to his Winter cruises, long stays in New Smyrna Beach with Shirley and spending time with the many friends made along the way. Family gatherings won't be the same without his jokes and stories. He will be missed. Sail on "Uncle" Ron, you and Aunt Shirl' are together again.
A celebration of a good life well lived, will be held at the Toronto Humber Yacht Club, 101 Humber Valley Road, Toronto on Sunday, July 28th, 2-5.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
