Michael Dou­glas Gil­roy


Michael Dou­glas Gil­roy,

64, West Le­ices­ter, passed away peace­fully at home with fam­ily at his side on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4, 2018.

Born in Amherst, he was a son of Geraldine (Bowser) (Wen­dall) Smith and the late Don­ald Gil­roy. Mike had a pas­sion for the out­doors, whether it was cut­ting in the woods or work­ing in the yard. Mike was a self­less, hard­work­ing man who would do any­thing for any­one, re­gard­less of what he needed to do for him­self. His love for his fam­ily was sec­ond to none, es­pe­cially his grand­chil­dren who brought out the kid in him again.

He will be re­mem­bered by his wife of 37 years, Terry (Hun­sley); daugh­ter, Natalie Gil­roy (Dan Mathe­son) and their chil­dren, Parker, Hunter and Damien Au­coin, Si­enna and Maken­zie Mathe­son; daugh­ter, Sonya Cud­more and her chil­dren, Si­enna and Avery Cud­more; brother, Jack (Deb­bie) Gil­roy and their chil­dren, Cody and Corey Gil­roy; spe­cial aunt, Dorothy Bowser; mother-in-law, Jenny (Richard) Bowser; fa­ther-in­law, Gor­don Hun­sley; sis­ters-in-law; step-brothers and step-sis­ters, aunts, un­cles, cousins, nieces and neph­ews. He was pre­de­ceased by his sis­ter, Linda Gil­roy; nephew, Christo­pher Gil­roy.

Visi­ta­tion was from 6-8 p.m. Wednes­day, Novem­ber 7, 2018 in MacDiarmid’s Funeral Home, 5075 Main Street, Ox­ford (902-447-2930). Funeral ser­vice was held at 1 p.m. Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8 in Ox­ford Church of the Nazarene. Mike’s fam­ily re­quest all at­tend­ing wear ca­sual at­tire.
