Obituary of Thomas "Tom" Gilkie


Age 85, of Sambro.  It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Uncle Tom on September 19, 2018.  He was a son of the late Alexander and Annie (Creed) Gilkie.

Tom enjoyed hunting, boating, walking and socializing with the many friends he met along the way.  Tom was retired from NS Department of Transportation where he worked for over 30 years.  Tom was predeceased by his brother Joe and sister-in-law Bridgie.  He is survived by his nieces and nephews, Anna (Barry) Slaunwhite, Beverly Purcell, Frank (Helen), Justin (Denise), John, Sam (Crystal), Troy (Nicole) and many great and great-great nieces and nephews.  He was a wonderful uncle to all and a special friend to many.

The family would like to thank Northwood Homecare and VON for their support while Tom was at home.  Many thanks to the staff, nurses and doctors on 3B and 4B of the VG for taking such great care of Tom.

A gravesite service will be held at St. James Cemetery, Sambro at a later date.  Donations in memory of Tom can be made to a charity of choice.
