Duncan GALE

Duncan Robert MacLauchlan Gale, born on October 19, 1992, tragically departed from this world on August 1, 2023. It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our beloved son, who has left us far too soon. Duncan was cherished beyond measure by his parents Carol MacLauchlan and Watson Gale, as well as his siblings Emma, Keltie, and Lauchlan. He also held a special place in the hearts of his niece Aisling and nephew Malcolm. Duncan was deeply loved by his aunts, uncles, and his devoted godparents Mike and Di Leuty, Carolyn Hill, and Bob Atkinson.

Throughout his life, Duncan left a profound impact on the lives of his family, a diverse group of friends, and all those he encountered. His endearing nature, contagious enthusiasm, and acts of kindness remained etched in the memories of his many communities, including Lisgar, his TKE fraternity at Carleton, and the Glebe. While he consistently brought joy to those around him, Duncan struggled to find it within himself, leading to his untimely departure. Although our hearts are filled with sorrow, we implore you to hold onto the memories of his infectious smile, vibrant energy, and his ability to make others feel special. Let us remember the warm embrace of his hugs and forever cherish the spirit of Duncan.
