GILRAY, John Stuart Alexander, D.V.M., V.S.
The family of horse lover and equine veterinarian Doctor John GILRAY is profoundly sad to announce that their husband/father/grandfather has succumbed to cancer at the age of 78. John died peacefully in his sleep on June 5, 2008. He was the beloved partner of Connie SANDERS, much-loved father of Stuart (Linda) GILRAY, Barbara (Tom) WIEBE, Ann GILRAY and Janet GILRAY (Rick LETESTU,) and much-loved brother of Barbara WILLIAMS. " Grampa John" will also be greatly missed by Vanessa, Paige and Jillian WIEBE, Dallas GILRAY and Mitchell POTTS.
Passionate about horses from age 13, John always considered himself lucky that his vocation was also his avocation. He graduated in 1954 from the Ontario Veterinary College and practiced equine medicine first in Ontario and then in British Columbia from 1959 to 2007. His accomplishments and contributions to the equine world were many and varied. In 2004, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Horse Council British Columbia for outstanding service to the horse industry of British Columbia, and that same year the Royal Horse Show in Toronto made him an Honorary Veterinarian in recognition of 50 years of volunteer service.
During his career, John was an Equine Canada judge and steward an FEI veterinarian; chairman of Zone 5 of the Canadian Horse Shows Association and a national vice president of its successor, the Canadian Equestrian Federation; founder of the Northwest International Horse show, which under his 15-year chairmanship was the premier all-breed indoor show in western Canada; founder and first master of the Fraser Valley Hunt; Visiting Commissioner of the Canadian Pony Club and co-founder of three British Columbia Pony Club branches. As an equine practitioner, "Dr. John" was universally respected for his professionalism, knowledge and integrity. As a friend, he will be remembered for his compassion, sociability and sense of humour. He will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.
A celebration of John's life will be held on Tuesday, June 24 at Victory Memorial Gardens, Surrey, British Columbia. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

Risky intersection claims three Carleton Friends
Police trying to figure out what happened in crash that also injured two other students, one critically
By Gloria GALLOWAY with a report from staff at The Charlatan, the newspaper at Carleton University, Page A9
Ottawa -- Brianne DESCHAMPS and Vanessa CRAWFORD joked about how close they were by listing themselves as "married" on their Facebook profiles.
The two bubbly and intelligent girls from Southwestern Ontario had a lot in common.
They lived in small towns, went to the same country high school, and headed off to Carleton University in Ottawa to experience the heady freedom of undergraduate life.
The final chapter of their tight-knit relationship was written early yesterday when they died, along with their friend Mark MacDONALD, in a crash that left his sport utility vehicle a tangled hulk of dark metal.
"They were just great girls. They were just absolutely wonderful," said Denise SYER, who went to high school with the two 19-year-olds in Petrolia, east of Sarnia. Ms. SYER could barely speak through her tears as she grappled with the loss.
Mr. MacDONALD, 20, was also a Carleton student - someone who was remembered for his love of life and his athleticism.
Police say he was at the wheel when his Toyota 4-Runner was hit by a bus at about 1: 50 a.m. at an intersection of two main roads just south of the university, which is notorious for its high number of crashes.
The force of the impact took out a heavy, metal light standard. The bus was tossed into a snowbank.
All three young people were pronounced dead at the scene and two other students in the sport utility vehicle were also injured. Ben GARDINER, 25, was listed as being in critical but stable condition in hospital yesterday after undergoing leg surgery. A 19-year-old female student was treated in hospital and released.
Although it had snowed most of Tuesday, the flurries had substantially tapered off by the early hours of yesterday.
Police said yesterday afternoon that they were still trying to piece together what had happened, but they suspected alcohol might have been involved. The bus driver, who suffered minor injuries along with one of his passengers, told police that he had the green light.
Brier DODGE, a Carleton journalism student, grew up in Arnprior, west of Ottawa, with Mr. MacDONALD and remembered him as being a national-level swimmer, though he quit before enrolling at Carleton.
Ms. DODGE said that Mr. MacDONALD was the type of guy who loved to have fun.
"Looking back at him I think you can say that he really did live every day the way he really wanted to," she said. He and the two girls who died "all really loved life and to have fun. They were always inviting people over."
Lindsay SKEOCH, a second-year sociology student, said she was lost for words. "He was a really good friend and somebody I'll remember forever," she said of Mr. MacDONALD. "He was a hilarious guy. He was always up for fun - always wanted to go out and do things. He never was one to sit around."
Ms. DESCHAMPS was a music major who planned to teach music privately after graduation, her father, Stephen DESCHAMPS, said when reached at the family's home in Petrolia.
"She loved life, loved her Friends. I loved her giggle, her laugh, her beautiful, beautiful smile. Anything I'd do would make her laugh. She was very much a daddy's girl."
Ms. CRAWFORD hailed from Corunna.
Nicole BURK/BURKE, who worked part time with her at the local Tim Hortons while the two were in high school, described her as fun loving and someone who was an excellent singer. "She was in the Jazz Attack group at my school and she was really good."
Paul WIERSMA is the vice-principal at Lambton Central Collegiate Vocational Institute in Petrolia where both girls went to school. The students were told of the tragedy at the end of the day yesterday and a moment of silence was observed.
"They will be very much missed by our senior students and by our teachers," Mr. WIERSMA said. "They were full of life and they certainly were excited by going off to university. They had a lot of potential and a lot to offer."
At Carleton, flags were flying at half-mast yesterday.
Samy MAHMOUD, Carleton's interim president, described the news of the deaths as "devastating."
