Gilbert enjoyed traveling and spent time living in Mexico, visiting the pyramids there, and perusing Australia. He was an avid bicyclist and loved all types of music, but country music best of all.
He was a resident of Austin, before moving to Houston. He was employed by Home Depot, after spending a number of years working for Pitney Bowes. He loved meeting and making new friends, always had a smile for everyone, and will be sorely missed by all his family and many, many friends.
