Stephen Glen Gilmore
Stephen Glenn Gilmore of Moncton, NB
passed away at The Moncton Hospital on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the
age of 52. He was a son of John and Jean (Killam) Gilmore.
Stephen was born in Charlottetown, P E I and spent his early years there until the Gilmore family of eight moved to Moncton.
He grew up in a home with many pets and he was particularly
fond of cats.
In Stephen’s early adult years he was very helpful in the family’s Magnetic Hill Campground. One of his pleasures, as a young man, was to climb the tower at Lutes Mountain, and to sit back and watch the stars for hours. He said it gave him such a peaceful feeling.
Stephen joined the Military as an Ordinary Seaman and was training to be an Electronician when he injured his back. He had unsuccessful back surgery in Montreal. After his back surgery, it became necessary to end his Military career. He had a great sense of pride in his Military career. He was proud to have had the opportunity to serve.
After leaving the Military, Stephen became more interested in studying to improve his computer knowledge, He continued to work with computers and later became involved with work at Elmwood Cemetery where his computer skills and kind heart were appreciated.
Stephen was an avid Historian of Army memorabilia which was inspired by his Grandfather’s lengthy Army career including both world wars and especially during the time when his Grandfather served as an Army Major.
In addition to his parents he is survived by his sisters, Laura Lee Burke (Tom) of Albert Mines, Bonnie Keith (Brian) of Moncton, Jennifer Taylor (Michael) of Riverglade; brother, James Gilmore (Michelle) of Steeves Settlement.
Stephen was predeceased by a brother, John (Jack) Gilmore.
In honor of Stephen, services and interment were held at Horsman cemetery.
The family would like to thank Pastor Dale Thistle of the Lutes Mountain Church of The Nazarene for his compassionate care during this difficult time. We would also like to thank the Royal Canadian Legion for their tribute to Stephen and Tuttles Funeral Home for the kindness and understanding shown to the family members when it was most needed by all of us.
