GILL David Langdon It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of David Langdon Gill at his home in Conception Bay South, aged 82. A beloved husband, father and grandfather, David was a gentle and fun-loving person who approached life with enthusiasm and joy. David enjoyed a long career as a teacher and then professor at Memorial University before becoming a real estate agent in “retirement.” An Officer in the UNTD in his youth, David was an avid golfer, fly fisherman and trumpeter in both the CLB Band and Gower Community Band. Dave was happiest being with friends and spending time with family – especially enjoying his role as “poppy.” Mourning his loss are his loving wife of 55 years, Cynthia (Haines), children Susan Bonnell (John) and Ken (Cindy), and beloved grandchildren Sarah (Nik) and David Bonnell and Julia and Holly Gill (mother Eve MacDonald), along with brothers-in law Lorne Haines (Louise), David Haines (Pat) and sister-in-law Joyce Hudachek, nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by his parents Brigadiers Kenneth and Lily Gill (Gosse). David has been cremated and a funeral will be held later in December at St. John the Evangelist Church, Topsail. The family is planning a celebration of life in the summer for all Dave’s many friends and acquaintances. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Chamberlains Park Action Committee, Inc.
