Our beloved father and friend Louis Gheyle, has lost his battle with cancer Monday, February 16 2015 at VGH. Born in Knokke Belgium he was the youngest of 5 siblings; sisters Rachel, Simone, Maria and brother Julien. He moved to Canada in 1984 with his wife Dimka and sons Michael and James. Louis possessed a wonderful, gentle spirit. He was a gift of immeasurable joy and laughter to our family and will be deeply missed. He enjoyed gardening, watching hockey with his sons and walking his dogs Sam and Daisy. He was a seasoned cook, a passionate gardener, a loving father, a loyal friend and confidante to everyone he met. Louis is survived by his sons James and Michael, his daughter-in-laws Mercia and Carla, grandsons Donovan, Jordan, Justin and Daylan and his sister Maria. We lost him much too soon and are saddened beyond words at our loss. We are extremely grateful to the palliative care staff at VGH for the comfort and dignity they provided Louis and that he is at peace in a beautiful garden. The family will be holding a private celebration of life in March. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the BC Cancer Foundation.
