My deepest condolences to the family. I wanted to share a quick memory from many years ago. Gilbert used to have an orange corvette, he would drive up to Lakeview Beach back in the day with his brother Noel. Both Gilbert and Noel were good guys, raised up properly and perfect gentlemen. I will always remember Gilbert's smile and the pride he had driving around in the orange vette. May he rest in paradise and God bless and care for his family at this time.
