I was just made aware of Mr. Mohr's passing, and wanted to share a thought. As the current band director at The University of Toledo, I've become very familiar with and attached to FAIR TOLEDO. It is a significant part of pregame and postgame performances by the Rocket Marching Band and pep bands at UT athletics events. Students, fans and players honor the university by standing and singing FAIR TOLEDO at these events. It is a moving tradition, and it is a significant gift that Mr. Mohr has given the UT (TU) community. The Alma Mater and J. Gilbert Mohr will continue to be with us for the many years and decades to come.
Sorry to hear Mr. Mohr passed away. I was out-of-town that weekend.
I enjoyed talking with him as I helped arrange his song for Maumee.
The UT Alma Mater will now be heard partly in tribute to Gil.
I thought Uncle Gil would live forever as he was so busy with his projects. I just pulled out a photo of him grinning at White Birch with us. Gretch, Karen and Bill-please accept our hugs of love. Vicky & Rick
I was fortunate enough to meet Gil while teaching Instrumental Music in the Maumee Schools. Gil donated many instruments to the band program. I was also honored to have a small part in the performance of the the song Gil wrote celebrating Maumee's sesquicentennial in 1986. I attended The University of Toledo and as a member of the Band, played Fair Toledo many times.
Gil will be forever remembered for his generosity. He will truly be missed. My condolences to his family.
I had 60 years of fun with Gil. At work, Church on the Internet and at play.Our friends and a relative at Swan Creek will miss his presence greatly. Gretchen, Bill & Karen he brought life & laughter to many. George & Jean Hannes Dave, Linda & Cindy
Gil was a valued member of the Maumee Rotary Club. My husband Charlie (deceased 2000) and I respected Gil greatly. He was always a gentleman. His presence will be missed at Swan Creek.
Gretchen, Bill and Karen: Our condolences. I wish we'd had more time with your Dad. Once a year at WBL is just not enough. But even a peek at a life-lived so well is inspirational. May we all be so lucky to live ours to the fullest as your Dad did.
I met Gil at the Friday luncheons at Swan Creek, and he was an amazing character so full of joy and life! He always greeted my father with a "hi ya' old buddy" and a smile. Gil was always ready to ask questions and seek more information on topics he enjoyed. What a great man.
