Dave Gilmour (ice hockey b. 1882)
David Gordon Gilmour (1882 – September 27, 1932) was a Canadian amateur ice hockey player for the Ottawa Silver Seven in the pre-NHL years. He was a member of the Silver Seven era winning the Stanley Cup from March 1903 to March 1906. His brothers Suddy Gilmour and Billy Gilmour also played for Ottawa at the same time. He later became a prominent Ottawa businessman in the lumber industry.
As a youth, Gilmour played several sports. He played ice hockey for the junior Aberdeens before joining the senior Ottawa Hockey Club in 1897. He did not become a regular player until several years later and even then, being a centre had to share ice time with Frank McGee.
Born in 1882 in Ottawa, Gilmour was one of four sons of five children born to Mr. and Mrs. John Gilmour. The other children were Bill, Sutherland(Suddy), Ward and his sister Gilbert. Gilmour attended Ashbury College. The family business was lumber, and Gilmour owned a retail and wholesale lumber firm D.G. Gilmour and Company. His father was a partner in Gilmour and Highson Lumber. Gilmour married Roma King, daughter of Supreme Court justice George Edwin King. They had three children: daughters Hope and Vale and son John. Gilmour died of natural causes while on a hunting trip near Mullin's Lake north of Ottawa in Quebec.
Gilmour is buried at Beechwood Cemetery.
