Gary Allan Gilby – 80, Masstown, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, on Sunday evening, May 12, 2024, at Shannex Vimy Court, Bible Hill. Born in Truro, he was the son of the late George and Blanche (Beattie) Gilby.
Gary worked in various sales positions over the years, making many life-long friends along the way. He worked for Specialty Printers, Cadbury’s and as a sales representative at Sears. Being a people person, he ventured out on his own at the Onslow Market and later established the North River Kwik Way; some may say that he was a bit of a character at these stores. He was an avid hunter, enjoyed fishing and loved playing crib.  He may have considered himself a bit of a pool shark. 
Gary is survived by his loving wife, Yvonne Hennigar; daughters, Krista Gilby, Truro; Kara Lee Gilby (Rob Wormald), Ottawa; step-son, Mike Redmond, Central North River; granddaughter, Jordan Wormald; step grandsons, Mitchell Redmond, Nicholas Redmond; sister, Sharon Crowell, Truro; many nieces and nephews. Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters, Judy Sutton, Elsie Woodworth.
Honouring Gary’s request, a private interment will be held in Crossroads Cemetery, 110 Salmon River Road, Valley. If so desired, donations in Gary’s memory to a charity of choice are welcomed.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Tributes, words of comfort and memories may be shared at:
