Tom Gillespie Obituary
1945 ~ 2013
Murray, UT-Thomas (Tom) Gillespie age 68 passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 26, 2013. First born child of 5 to Thelma and Gordon Gillespie of Murray Utah. Tom spent most of his lifetime working as a Core Driller where he traveled the Western US and Alaska. He retired in 2007 where he lived in Murray, Utah. All who were lucky enough to know him loved him for his hard work, kindness, generosity, and willingness to help out. His only daughter Holly, all his nieces & nephews were particularly special to him. (Daddy, and Uncle Tom). He was "The Big Brother" that never stopped looking after his brothers, sister, and his mother. He loved to weld, repair, create, invent, and recently worked to perfect his BBQ skills. He was quick witted, and a great story teller. In Sept. 2011 his heart was broken when he lost one of the angels of his life by the passing of his daughter Holly. He is survived by his Mother (Thelma), 1 sister (Sandra), 3 bothers (Jerry, Mick, Scott) and his lifetime friend and love (Kathleen). A remembrance for family and friends will be held at the Jenkins Soffe Mortuary, 4760 S. State St, Murray, Utah on Friday Oct. 4th at 6:00 PM.
