Together they raised three beautiful children in Cumberland County in a loving home they built together.
Gilbert had an exceptional work ethic. He was always doing something. Whether at work or at home he kept busy with gardening, building, and helping out his friends. He worked at Seabrook Brothers and Son's and then at Green Giant until 1988 when he began working at Kerr Pipe, where he remained employed until retiring in April of 2009. He then assisted his wife Denise with running "Ewin Skill Care Center" for a number of years before they both retired to Palm Coast Florida where they quickly adopted the name peanut butter and jelly, because they were always together.
