I’am so glad GOD gave me you to be my dad and I your daughter! You were a great man and I’am so very proud to carry everything you taught us and memories and share that with my children. Rest in peace! I will always love you, Joanne.

I met Gilbert when I was 17 and fell in love with his son, Jim, who has many of Gilbert’s beautiful qualities. All my memories of him continue to bring me joy and he was an exceptional grandfather to all his grandchildren and our 5 sons will always love their Grandpapa. God bless you Gilbert now that you are at home in Heaven. May you rest in peace and know that you will never be forgotten. With love, Laura Koelsch
