    To the Gilmour Family,

    I am terribly sorry for your loss. John was always a pleasure to be around when he attended United Irish Societies of Montreal meetings and, of course, our iconic parade. I probably last saw John in 2018-2019 when he passed the St. Anthony’s baton to his son John. Know that John has been in my thoughts on a regular basis as he fought the good fight. Also know that my friends within the UIS are equally saddened by John’s passing. Such a positive man with an engaging smile. Unfortunately for me, I am unable to attend visitation today or funeral tomorrow. Please know you are in all out thoughts. I will be mentioning John at the UIS Executive meeting this evening as well as at the UIS General meeting this weekend. May the friends and family who surround you at this sad time comfort you and remind you of the many fond memories you shared with John.

    Ken Quinn, Past President & Historian
    United Irish Societies of Montreal
