Family pay tribute to 75 year old Yorkshire man who donated organs after his death in cycling accident
His family have described him as a much-loved husband of 48 years to Liz, a father of two and grandad of five - as well as a brother, uncle and friend to many more.
Mr Gilmore worked as a nurse for more than 40 years in a number of hospitals across Leeds and Bradford but the favourite part of his job were the years spent in the ICU in Killingbeck Hospital.
In particular they would like to thank both the team on ward L3 of the Jubilee Wing at LGI for their superb care and the transplant service coordinators’ professionalism in allowing Mr Gilmore's own last act of service to others in donating his kidneys.
They have also appealed for people to register on the organ donation site and to talk to close relatives about registering and donation.
