Liam Scott Gillies
March 30, 1994 - March 18, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Liam Scott Gillies, just days shy of his 26th birthday. He is survived by his Dad Gord, his Mom Kandi McElary, sister Laura, and many loving relatives across the country.

We are devastated by the loss of our beautiful boy.

Liam was a mischievous rascal from the get go. With a twinkle in his eye he was up for anything and always in the middle of the mayhem. He loved to play and create games and his childhood was filled with laughter. He loved making people laugh. School for Liam was a time to gather with friends and start planning the next adventure. Often during class.

Liam was having a fantastic semester at Mount Royal University on the road to a Sociology degree. He had firmed up work plans for the summer and was looking forward to returning in the Fall.

Those of you close to Liam know of his struggles. At times his journey was difficult, but he never gave up hope of bringing harmony to his life. It never changed his caring and compassionate nature. He had depth and character and a sweetness that touched anyone who knew him. We cherish our time together, happy memories filled with laughter and quiet times just hanging out with a kind and sensitive soul.

A celebration of his life that impacted so many people will come sometime down the road.

Liam had a wonderfully generous spirit and heart. Right now in this upside down world there are many charities, groups and businesses that are struggling. If so desired, we would love it if you found a way to make a difference to one that is important to you.

When you do, think of Liam.

It would make him smile.

Liam and I were friends on Facebook for many years as we shared with same full name, although we never spoke face to face, as I am in the United Kingdom. I was shocked this morning to see he had passed. Wishing his family all the best. Rest in peace Liam.

To Liam’s family,
I am so sorry to hear about Liam. When I came to AE Cross for grade 9 Liam and I became friends right away. There was a time when we hung out almost everyday and almost every memory I have with Liam we were laughing. We even got in trouble during class sometimes for laughing too much. The SALTS trip is still one of my favourite memories and so many of those moments were with Liam.
I saw Liam the week before he passed and we had a quick chat and catch up. I am so happy I got to see him one last time.
Liam will be missed greatly! He will always have a special place in my heart!

Dear Kandi, Gord, and Laura,
I just learned of Liam's passing, and I want to offer you my condolences. I met Liam a few years back when he was considering returning to school. He was memorable in many ways, mostly for his vision for why he was coming back. Our hearts go out to you. And I can speak on behalf of those of us in University Campus Ministries that our prayers are with you in this difficult time. You are much loved and appreciated.

Wishing you peace and love,
Glen Ryland
