Larry Augustus Gillingham was born June 25, 1937 in Clarkes Head, Newfoundland and passed away at Lakeside Homes in Gander, Newfoundland on November 21, 2019 at the age of 82.

Larry is predeceased by his son Jody Gillingham, brother Lewis Gillingham, father Kenneth Gillingham, mother Ella (nee Francis) and wife Norma (nee Pennell).

Larry is lovingly remembered by his son David (Sarah) of Sudbury, Ontario, daughter Barbara (Llewelyn) Fancey of Gander, Newfoundland, son Tony (Karen) of Clarkes Head, Newfoundland and daughter Pamela (David) Bauld of Clarkes Head, Newfoundland; grandchildren Hannah Gillingham, Caleb Fancey, Ethan Bauld, Jacob Gillingham and Kaiden Bauld; sister Eileen Francis, brother Aubrey (Doreen) Gillingham, sister Melvina (Morley) Head, sister Kathleen (Ernest) Warren, brother Irving (Venicia) Gillingham, and brother Elvis Gillingham and a large circle of nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Larry worked for years as a hunting and fishing guide as well as a boatbuilder. He enjoyed a quiet night alone in the woods in the cabin or in a wigwam as equally as he loved getting together with family and friends playing guitar and singing songs, many of which he wrote himself. Later he would often be seen on his quad, continuing to enjoy the outdoors and soaking up as much sun as he possibly could. He continued to make new friends in his final couple of years in the Gander Bay Retirement Home and Lakeside Homes in Gander where he will also be missed.

The visitation will be held at the Pentecostal Church in Wing’s Point on the afternoon and evening of Saturday, November 23, 2019 and the morning of Sunday, November 24, 2019. The funeral service will also be held at the Wing’s Point Pentecostal Church at 2:00 pm with Pastor Robert Parsons officiating and with internment to follow at the Pentecostal cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Diabetes Canada or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Tony, so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. Sending condolences to you and your family.

Barbie, Pamie, David, Tony and all the families. So sorry to hear of your dads passing. I have many fond and silly memories of him, we played music together at church for years. He loved to sing and play his guitar, and there was never a dull moment when he was around. He will be missed for sure, but we sorrow not as those who have no hope. There’s a great reunion being planned as we speak, and we can all be part of that. Praying for you all, be assured that I’m thinking of you today. Love & prayers Pastor Wavey Mercer, Brampton Ontario.

Hi David and family barbie and family Pam and family tony and friend I remember our visits to your parents house we loved every time we went to visit!! Your mom and dad were warm wonderful people
Always there to lend a helping hand wherever one was needed. They never had much when it came to material but lots of love to give to friends and neighbors alike. I know I will miss him when I visit gander seniors home again. Hold
On to all the great memories. Love you all.
Love Liz

Sorry to hear of Larry's passing. I was a volunteer at Lakeside homes. I became a good friend to him. He was a very likeable person. I will sure miss my visits with him, also taking him out to Walmart on the bus. Also took him up to functions at the recreation centre. He was a good friend to lot off the residences and staff. We will surely miss him, especially saying yes mam, no mam. He was a very mannerly person. Our thoughts & prayers goes to his family and friends.
