Alexander William “Bill” Gillespie, t is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Alexander William (Bill), (Gil) Gillespie, LCol. (Rtd), O.M.M, C.D, (81) on June 28 at the Halifax Infirmary, due to complications from surgery. Born in Brockville, ON. Bill was the only son of the late William and Maude L. (Gorman) Gillespie and the beloved baby brother to Mary Waymouth (deceased), Dorathy Hutton (deceased), Marjorie Jackson (Alberta) and adopted sister, Soyie. The family moved to Hamilton, ON shortly after his birth where Bill attended various schools. He joined the Royal Canadian Navy as an Ordinary Seaman in October, 1950. In 1952 he transferred to the Naval Air Branch and was trained as an Air Fitter at H.M.C.S. Shearwater. After training, Bill served on various Naval Air Squadrons on both coasts and ships, including H.M.C.S. Magnificent for Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in 1953 and with the first United Nation’s Peace Keeping Mission to Egypt in 1956. In 1976 he was commissioned as a Captain (AERE) and served as the Squadron Aircraft Maintenance Officer in 427 Tactical Helicopter Squadron, CFB Petawawa, 1978 to 1981. In 1981, he was transferred to N.D.H.Q. as the Aircraft Project Officer for the CH-147 Chinook Heavy Lift Helicopter. Promoted Major in 1982, he was chosen for exchange duties at the United States Naval Aircraft Repair Facilities, Pensacola, Florida as the H-1, H-2, and H-3 Project Officer. On returning to Canada in 1984, he was assigned duties as Aircraft Maintenance Officer for the Sea King Helicopter at CFB Shearwater. In 1986, Bill was promoted LCol. and was transferred to N.D.H.Q. as Section Head of D.D.D.S. 2. On his release in 1988, Bill went to work for I.M.P. Group Aerospace Division as Director of Aircraft Programs and in 1989 was promoted to Vice President of Aircraft Production. Bill retired from the I.M.P. Group in 1992 to spend more time at the lake with his wife June and to play hockey and swim with his grandchildren whom he adored.

Bill was a community-oriented individual from the days of his youth when he organized an outdoor rink in his community, to later in life, when he became a Cub Leader, Volunteer Fireman, Little League Coach, President of the Rate Payers Association, and President of a swim club. In retirement, he was President of his Parish Council, Chairperson of his Church’s Annual Picnic and organized and ran the Neighbourhood Watch Program in Mineville, NS. He was also Past-President of the Shearwater Aviation Museum to which he was an avid volunteer.

Although Bill’s favourite sport was hockey, which he played until his late sixties, he obtained his greatest sports achievement while playing football for the Shearwater Flyers of the Nova Scotia Senior Canadian Football League when they won the Maritime Championship in 1952. His second love was swimming and for years he could be found at the Shearwater or Naden pools teaching youngsters and adults how to swim safely.

He is survived by his much loved and loving wife of 60 years, June Marie (MacDonald), daughters Jacqueline (Brian) White, Patricia (Craig) MacDonald, Sandra Gillespie, and Donna Gillespie (York Friesen); sister, Marjorie Jackson (Calgary, AB); his nine grandchildren, Brenton, Sean, and Nicholas MacDonald (Dartmouth, NS), Lindsey and Kyle White (Toronto and Australia), and Conor, Jessica, Noah and Riley Gillespie-Friesen (Dartmouth) as well as one great grandchild, Gavin MacDonald; numerous nephews, nieces, grand-nephews and grand-nieces.  Visitation took  place on Wednesday July 2, from 2-4 and 7-9 pm in A.

Corinne GillespieCorinne Marie Gillespie, Halifax, Our beautiful, talented, loving and fiercely independent Corinne, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and loyal friend passed away on Monday July 18th, 2022 from ovarian cancer, surrounded by her adoring family. Born the third child of six to Mona (English) Gillespie of Branch, St. Mary’s Bay and Francis Gillespie of Claregalway, Ireland she became the middle glue that kept us all together. Growing up in St. John’s her extended family was large and remained close to Corinne all her life.  Always in love with the ocean she took to the sea and mastered sailing in her teens.

Academically she excelled and attended Littledale and Beaconsfield before graduating from Memorial University with her iron ring and an engineering degree in Naval Architecture. Our adventurous and newly minted engineer would then set off on a 30-year varied and challenging career in Oil & Gas, Telecom and Ship Building taking her to ‘34 and I stopped counting’ locations across North America.   . Predeceased by her father ‘Alfie’, Corinne will forever be remembered by her mother, Mona; brothers and sisters, Frank, Eileen, Sean (Penny), Brian and David. Her very special niece, Bridget whom she adored, loved and to whom she was a second mom, Erin, Katie, Brenna, Jenny, Mara, Olivia, Bridget, Rory, Paddy and Kathleen.

He was very proud having attended school at the Morgan Academy and went on to serve as an engineer working with his father at the hydro power plant in Dundee.

One of the highlights of his career was fueling the Queens yacht, the HMS Britannia.

He had a fondness for his pets, especially his Great Danes and cats, Toots and Thomas. In his earlier years Jimmy was a golfer and curler and was a great cook of Chinese and Indian curries. An avid reader, he enjoyed crossword puzzles until a stroke damaged his eyesight.

Active in his community, he served on the board of the local SPCA and was a member of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Rose Bay. Jimmy was a life member of St. David Lodge, # 78 Dundee, affiliating with Charity Lodge No. 69, Mahone Bay, receiving his 50 years jewel and a 25 year member of the Eastern Star Chapter 38, Bridgewater.
