It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kevin Russell Gillespie on October 23, 2023, at the age of 67 years. He passed away suddenly at his home in Lethbridge, AB.
Kevin lived his life in many small towns throughout Southern Alberta from Mossleigh to Vulcan, Lomond, and Stavely; all leading to his time in Claresholm. This is where he went to high school and made many lifelong friends, including his wife, Jayne. In 1989, Kevin moved his family to Pincher Creek, where he worked as a maintenance foreman for the majority of his career with CP Rail. After 35 years, he retired and made his final move in 2018 to Lethbridge, AB.
Throughout his life, Kevin enjoyed many years of camping, curling, and golfing. He loved spending time with family and friends, whether it was around the campfire; around the card table; or just in the back yard. One of Kevin’s many talents was barbecuing; and he took great pride in cooking up different meats for many gatherings throughout the years.
Kevin will forever be lovingly remembered by his children Chris (Jolene) and Danielle; grandchildren Evan and Gracen; sister Pat (Don) McRae; brothers Darryl (Judy) Gillespie; Grant Gillespie; Dennis (Lis) Gillespie; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, John & Edna Gillespie; his wife, Jayne Gillespie; sister Candy Gillespie; and nephew Doug Gillespie.
There will no formal service held at this time. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
