John was my favorite uncle and always a great support to me. We had so many good times together. When I heard of his passing, I put on Hot August Night...I could just feel him and see him dancing. Peggy, I am so sorry you lost your soulmate, and to my cousins, I do believe you three hit the jackpot when it came to "DaddyFathers."
I AM SINCERELY SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR HUSBAND, FATHER AND BROTHER. I LOVED HIM ALSO. WHAT WONDERFUL MEMORIES I HAVE. CAROL
Peggy I am so sorry to read of John's passing. As a chemotherapy RN at the U, I always smiled when I saw John's name on my assignment sheet. How I wish I could see his name today. I have only fond memories of the days I cared for him. What a great guy.
I am so sorry for your loss. John was my attorney during an awful time in my life, he made me laugh, got uncomfortable when I cried, and encouraged me to hold my head up high and do the next right thing. He truly was one of the good guys.
To the Gilsdorf family,
I was fortunate to be a friend and colleague of John's over the last 38 years. I respected John and looked forward to those cases where we were opposing counsel; I looked forward to that because I knew that I had an honest attorney that I could trust on the other side. John told you exactly what he thought and how he felt. He was the kind of man I could call and be confident in the conversation. I cannot say that for all attorneys with whom I have worked. I referred my friends that needed legal assistance to John because I knew that they would get excellent legal advice at a fair and honest fee. I will miss our talks, his smile and his laugh. The legal community has lost a fine attorney. My condolences to the family at this time of loss, but so glad he had those additional years to spend with all of you despite his illness
