    We regret to advise of the death of Gifford Moorhouse on 1 March 2008 in Victoria, BC.

    Born in Toronto in 1916, he grew up with many great tales to tell, moving north to Huntsville where he learned to ski, trap and achieve academically. As a teen he was a jockey at Woodbine, travelling to New Orleans to race at many tracks. Later he studied drafting. During WW II he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Engineers and saw action in Europe. After the war he moved to Victoria and he worked for 30 years with the Federal Government as a supervisor at the Dockyard.

    A funeral service will be held Monday, 10 March at 10:30 am at the Chapel of the New Jerusalem, Christ Church Cathedral. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of Mengo Hospital [Kampala, Uganda] Canada.
