It is with regret that the Canadian Hereford Association (CHA) announces the sudden passing of Mr. Kurt Gilmore, former Owner and Editor of The Canadian Hereford Digest on December 18, 2014, following a battle with cancer, at the age of 65.
The Canadian Hereford Association membership and staff wish to express their most sincere condolences to Kurt’s wife, Maxine and his family at this very difficult time.
Funeral Services will be held at Bow Valley Baptist Church (54 West Aarsby Road, Cochrane, AB) on Monday, December 22, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
It was Kurt's special request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Keith Gilmore Foundation Scholarship Fund, 5160 Skyline Way NE, Calgary, AB, T2E 6V1, www.keithgilmorefoundation.com.
In living memory of Kurt Gilmore, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/calgaryherald/obituary.aspx?n=kurt-gilmore&pid=173523131#sthash.HpuRpGWG.dpuf
