Edward and Iris Kohuch Collection -- Gilmore brothers, Doriston, Page 3

Edward Kohuch, the executor of George Gilmore's estate, and his wife Iris came to Sechelt in the early 1960s to run an appliance repair business. They became friends with George Gilmore of Doriston who, with his parents and brother Don, came to homestead in Doriston on the west side of Sechelt Inlet in 1934 from near Barrhead, Alberta. The brothers logged and fished up and down the West Coast for fifty-four years, returning to Doriston whenever possible. There George built boats and Don an organ. George moved to Greenecourt and Don to a heated house in Saltery Bay in the early 1990s. The photographs were placed in the archives in 2000 as there are no known Gilmore relatives.
