It is with deep sadness we announce the unexpected passing of Mark Edward Gilroy, age 43, of Amherst. Mark passed away on Thursday March 30, 2023.

Born in Amherst, NS, he was a son of Mary Gilroy (nee Wood) and the late Gordon Gilroy.

Mark was a jack of all trades. He was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed help. He loved a good bonfire and a beer in his hand but above all else he loved spending time with his family.

Mark will be dearly missed by his wife of 21 years Mandy, mother Mary; son Wyatt; daughter Emily; grandchildren Paisley and CJ; sister Stacy Taylor (Mike); nephews Cody, Tony and Dravyn.

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church Street, Amherst (902-667-8777). Cremation has taken place. There will be gathering at a later date at his favourite spot, his camp.

Memorial contributions in Mark’s memory may be made to Alzheimer's Association. 

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the online memorial at or through the Jones Family Funeral Centre Facebook Page.
