Godfrey 'Gilbert' Anderson

Gilbert Anderson of Langton passed away suddenly but peacefully at LHSC - University Hospital in London on Friday July 9, 2021, at the age of 64, surrounded by his wife and children.
Gilbert was a loving husband to Debra Anderson (Deketelaere) for 41 years. Proud Father of Kristin, and Nicholas (Meaghan). Cherished Papa of Makenah and Dawsyn, and his fur grandbaby Meeka.

Gilbert was born in Simcoe and grew up in the area of Norfolk County. Gilbert enjoyed life as a dedicated family man. He will be remembered and respected for always putting the ones he loved before himself. Our lives will be forever changed without him, but are forever changed because of him.
