Rogers Wallace Gimbernat Obituary
Rogers Wallace Gimbernat of Kennett Square Rogers Wallace Gimbernat passed away on Oct. 6, 2013. He was 86 years old. Born in NYC, he was the son of the late Rogers F. Gimbernat and the late Myra Wallace Gimbernat. Rog served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After the war, he attended Duke and Rutgers Universities where he graduated with a degree in civil engineering. During his long career with United Engineers and Constructors, Rog worked as superintendent of construction for the Salem I nuclear power plant in N.J. He was the beloved husband of the late Muriel Dilbatis Gimbernat for 52 years. Together, they designed and built by hand, two of their three homes, including their retirement home in Wintergreen, Va. when Rog was in his 70's! This accomplishment was attributable to the fact that Rog was decades ahead of his time in terms of nutrition and kept himself extremely fit. He would say, "There's no redeeming value in that donut". He skied into his 70's, lifted weights into his 80's and could leave his children and grandchildren in the dust trotting up his Virginia mountain trail. He was beloved father of Janice Chesney (John), Phyllis Roberts (Harry) and Chris Gimbernat (Jean); grandfather of Jason (Chrissy), Matthew, Sarah, Kelsey, Michael, Andrew, Kaitlin, and Bradley; great-grandfather of Ava, Matthew, Andrew and Ryan; and brother of Nancy Moody (Jack). A celebration of Rog's life will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19th, at 274 SCHOOLHOUSE LANE in WEST GROVE, PENNSYLVANIA 19390. In lieu of flowers: Lewy Body Dementia Association, www.lbda.org, 912 Killian Road, S.W., Liburn, GA 30048. Longwood Funeral Home of Matthew Genereux, Kennett Square; www.longwoodfuneralhome.com
