GILMORE: James of Wasaga Beach, formerly of Bala, Ontario

James A. Gilmore (1926 – 2017) Obituary

James Andrew Gilmore (Jim), 90, of Muskoka, Ontario, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2017. A dedicated husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend – he will be sorely missed. His light shone bright and touched everyone he met (in many countries/across many religions). God willing, he will remain in all our hearts and minds forever.

Jim was born in Preston (now Waterloo) Ontario to Alfred and Lilian Gilmore on August 23, 1926. Growing up in Barrie, Jim was active in many sports with a passion for hockey, baseball and wrestling. Jim left high school at age 16, to take over the family Poultry Hatchery business in Barrie after his father died.

Married to Elinor Beatrice Mitchell on September 11, 1948, they moved to Aurora, in 1957 where Jim worked with Skyline Poultry Farms. A devout Christian and dedicated member of the United Church of Canada, Jim heard God’s call to work as a missionary and in 1962, Jim, Elinor, and children (Maureen, Barry and Jamie) sailed off to the mysterious, magical land of India.

Jim and Elinor served 26 years in Asia – 11 as missionaries in India, 7 with United Nations in remote Muzaffarabad (Pakistan) and 8 with UN in Delhi. Jim revolutionized the poultry industry in India and Pakistan, satisfying Hindus in India that unfertilized chicken eggs were vegetarian, establishing broiler rearing and distribution network in India and building hatchery/feed mills/broiler farms in remote Pakistan.

Jim was very active in the community – Rotary Club in Barrie (at age 23 the youngest president), Sunday School teacher, India International Center Volunteer, helping set up broiler/egg production in Bethany Village (a landmark rehabilitation establishment for lepers)– after retirement, Muskoka Lakes Ratepayers Association, Bannockburn Church Board (near cottage), Church choir.

Jim Gilmore is survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Elinor; his three children Maureen (Moe) Donald, Barry and Jamie; his daughters in-law Ani and Sheilagh and son in-law Sandy; his 7 grandchildren Kerry Lee, Matthew, Sarah, Kenneth, Kathryn, Laura and Philip; his sister, Barbara; two nephews, Andrew and Jimmy and his cousin, Jean.

Jim’s Celebration of Life will be held at the family cottage in Muskoka, Ontario on July 29, 2017 at 2 pm. Please join us – contact one of his surviving children to confirm.

If you are moved to donate in Jim’s honour, make a small gift in his name to your church or to Bannockburn Community Church (1071 Bannockburn Road, Box 101 Bala) Wasaga Beach United Church (380 Zoo Park Rd., Wasaga Beach).
