Donald (Little Gib) Gilbert, age 69. of Cumming passed away April 3, 2013. He was a member of Coal Mountain Baptist Church and served on the board of NIADA. Over the years, Donald enjoyed sharing with his family his childhood memories of playing with his cousins (and there were a lot) at their grandfather Bells' farm shooting BB guns and riding their "truck wagon" into the creek.
He tagged along behind his Gilbert uncles who treated him more like a little brother than a nephew. He looked forward to Friday night dinners with his sisters and brothers-in-law. He loved and adored his grandchildren. He was a true friend, a quiet man and he will be missed. He was preceded in death by his father, Jr. (Big Gib) Gilbert; brother, David Gilbert; infant sister, Stacy Gilbert.
He is survived by his wife, Jane Gilbert of Cumming; children, Mitchell and Alice Gilbert of Cumming, Melanie and Robert Smith of Cumming; grandchildren, Caleb Gilbert, Rebecca and Paul Dankewich, Mattie, Dawson and Macey Smith; great-grandson, Luke Wade Dankewich; mother, Retha B. Gilbert of Cumming; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Gail and Dennis Jones of Cumming, Linda and Wayne Grindle of Cumming; several nieces, nephews and other relatives also survive.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 6, at 4 p.m. at Ingram Funeral Home, with the Rev. Ruel Martin, the Rev. Tim Hubbard, the Rev. Richard Picklesimer and Paul Dankewich officiating. Interment will follow at Sawnee View Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Thursday, April 4, from 6-9 p.m., Friday, April 5, from 2-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, April 6, from 1 p.m. until hour of service.
