Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
So sorry to hear about Mr. Lamothe. - Posted by: Carol Hutchinson (Friend) on: Apr 04, 2021
As a scientific diver Gil and I often worked together on environmental issues. We became very good friends and his daughter always referred to me as Dr Fudd. A title that stayed with me for life. Gil was a remarkable man, not only as a diver and very successful business man but as a friend who was always coming up with new ideas to solve problems. I feel very fortunate to have known him and am reminded of him every time I drive through St Francis Xavier where there is a street named after him and his family. - Posted by: Dr Andy Lockery (Fellow diver and business partner. ) on: Mar 17, 2021
Had the great pleasure of working with Gil on many underwater inspection and construction projects over the years. Always appreciated the "can do" attitude he and the Dominion Divers team brought to the job (and they still continue to do). My condolences to Gil's family on his passing. - Posted by: Gordon McPhail (Friend) on: Mar 10, 2021
I volunteered with Gil at Victoria Lifeline. I really enjoyed the time that we spent together. He was a very nice man and had a great sense of humour. I will miss him. RIP. - Posted by: Eugene Baraniuk (co-volunteer) on: Mar 09, 2021
Worked with Gil on many jobs, the best was in Antarctica. He could also be counted on for a laugh. Sorry he has gone. - Posted by: BRUCE PIERCY (friend) on: Mar 07, 2021
