We at Central Presbyterian Church – Vancouver, BC are saddened to announce that Gillan Jackson passed to be with our Lord on Friday, December 29th in St. Paul’s Hospital. Gillan was a “child of the manse”, born in Ireland and moving to Harvey Station, NB as a young lad. In his time in Ottawa he was very active at St. Timothy’s PC. He was the youngest person appointed to the Assembly Council, served several terms on the Life and Mission Agency, and was on the Board, an Elder, and Trustee for many years at Central. While arrangements are still in progress we anticipate that the Memorial Service will be deferred until we can hold it in our new building (in the development of which Gillan played a key role) … not before June at the earliest, but we will be sure to provide plenty of notice. Among Gillan’s wishes was that donations in his memory would be made to Central’s Building Fund.
Rev. Jim Smith
