Gilbert was a loving, caring person. He loved spending time with his nephews and nieces, always looking forward for every July when his niece Sonia and family would visit from Ohio. He loved watching sports, especially Dallas Cowboys. Gilbert was a hard worker – when not at his regular job at Serta, he was doing work with Jude Oliva, Ronda Reagan, Roy, Bill, Brenda, Theresa, and many others.
Gilbert touched so many of us, we will forever hold him in our hearts.
