1928 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
Gilbert John Puissegur

October 13, 2012

Gilbert John Puissegur, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother, passed away October 13, 2012. Born and raised in Louisiana, Gil graduated from Jesuit High School and Louisiana State University. Shortly after, Gil married Joyce Landry and began raising their daughters, Jeannine and Mary Christel. They spent their marriage on the east and west coasts of Florida. Following a career spent with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Gil and Joyce retired to Fort Myers. When not busy with church and community activities, they traveled extensively, but their most treasured moments were spent with their many friends, and watching their grandson, Matthew, grow to adulthood.

Gil truly embraced life; he treated friends like family, family like friends, and was blessed to be loved by many in return. He leaves behind a legacy of unselfishness and goodwill that touches all who knew him. Gil is survived by his daughter Mary, his grandson, Matthew Dyer, his sisters, Gail Becker and Joan Lavigne, and a large extended family.

A memorial Mass will be celebrated on Friday, November 2, at 10:30 a.m. at Blessed Pope John XXIII Catholic Church, 13060 Palomino Lane, Fort Myers, Florida 33912. Interment will follow the service.

In remembrance of Gil, the family asks that donations be made to Blessed Pope John XXIII Catholic Church, at the address above.
