Earl Miles Guilbride
November 1947 ~ November 29, 2012
Earl passed away peacefully and will be deeply missed by his wife Jeanne and sons Rob (Kathy) and Brian. He also leaves sister Anna Lee, brother Kurt (Annie) and niece Rhonda and his beloved dog Muffin.
Earl started his career at Chemainus Towing and continued his life long love for the water as he became Captain of several boats and barges. A young engineer who worked with Earl described him as “a character larger than life and as timeless & iconic as his barge, tug boat ‘The Bash’ itself”.
Thanks to everyone who arrived with flowers and hugs. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
“Earl will be sadly missed”.
