Gilbert John Loop, born Dec. 10, 1920, 250 Maple St, Vancouver, BC, deceased Monday, July 2, 2007, Cascade Lodge, Chilliwack.
Gilbert’s gift was socializing. He was proud of his 50+ years of membership in the carpenters’ union. He had many ups and downs in his life, in the end, his helpfulness and goodness prevailed.
He was predeceased by his three bothers: Stanley, Roy, and Bill. Gilbert was also predeceased by two wives who each enriched his life — Jean and Dorothea.
Gilbert is survived by his sister-in-law Margaret Pickering; his daughter, Jane Loop; son: David Loop; nephew: Ray Loop; step-daughter: Doreen Mumford, four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Thank you to all the people who helped and cared for Gilbert along the way, especially Teresa and all the caregivers at Cascade Lodge.
No service by request. Give someone a hand with a project. This was Gilbert’s specialty.
Rest in peace Gilbert. You are missed, loved and leave many memories.
