Gilbert ""Gib"" L. Robinson, 78, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Friday, June 19, 2020 at home surrounded by his family.

Gib was born on September 4, 1941 in Gary, IN, but was raised in Hobart, IN. He has lived in Richmond Hill for the past 17 years. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master's in Business Administration. Gib was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army serving in France and Vietnam as a combat engineer achieving the rank of Captain. He worked in management for Caterpillar in Peoria, IL for 34 years. His job took him to Brazil, South America where he was the plant engineer.

Gib was a member of St. Anne Catholic Church where he was a Eucharistic Minister, assisted with Homebound Ministry, and volunteered whenever his wife needed help with her committee work. He was a past president of the Friends of the Library and served on his HOA board for 12 years. He was a life member of the VFW and the American Legion. Gib was an avid photographer. He also enjoyed boating, fishing and gardening, but most of all enjoyed spending time with his wife, adult children, grandchildren and friends. He was a kind and generous husband, father and grandfather. He had a keen sense of humor, a calm nature, and was the consummate optimist. Rainbows, unicorns and butterflies was how his eldest daughter described him. He will be deeply missed.

One thing i will miss the most is Gil's twinkling smiling eyes greeting me in the narthex before or after Mass. Although I only knew him through St Anne and saw him only periodically, the interactions I had with him always showed his gentle spirit. May he rest in peace. Bernie know that I have and will continue to be praying for you and your family during difficult time. (((((HUGE HUGS)))))
