|Let the memory of Richard be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our father and brother Richard Gilbert who passed away February 4th after a long battle with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. We will remember him forever as a kind-hearted man with an infectious smile who loved his family and friends and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Richard enjoyed hunting, fishing, building custom furniture, camping and traveling. Richard and his wife Nancy were married for 50 years, to the day, as Nancy passed away on their 50th wedding anniversary on September 14th, 2007.
We would love to hear your favorite stories or memories of Richard and hope you post your memory for the family and friends to read.
Love, Marc, David, Noreen, Joyce and families
"I can't help but smile when I think of Gilly. He had that affect on people. Such a kind man - miss him and think of him often."

"My dad is greatly missed by me I miss his laugh his kindness and all the fun growing up in life from fishing and going hunting at camp.Dad and moms life was always about there family kids and there grandchildren they loved them all and doing things with us all. I miss them and think of them everyday there were always there for us all. I am happy they are together holding hands in heaven"
"A year has passed and our hearts still ache. Richard was a wonderful man with the heart of gold. I miss hearing him tell us jokes or seeing him dance with his Poopsy (Nancy). We had so much fun with the two of them. Our lives will never be the same without them both. My only solice to this loneliness is that they both are together again. We love you Richard and miss you terribly."
