Raymond Gilbert Obituary

Mr. Raymond Louis Gilbert went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg, VA.  He was born on July 26, 1940 to the late Neil Gilbert and Alice Dixon in Norfolk, VA.

When he was a child his family moved to North Carolina, and after graduating he relocated to Long Island, NY.  At the age of 29,  Raymond became a Police Officer for the Nassau County Police Department in Long Island, NY, in April 1969 and retired in October 1991. After his retirement Raymond moved back to Dunn, NC, where he lived for many years before moving to Richmond, VA to be closer to his sons and grandchildren. 

Raymond really enjoyed buying and restoring old vintage cars, riding motorcycles, traveling, watching old western movies, drag racing and he loved sports like boxing and baseball.  Most importantly, Raymond loved spending time with his sons and his grandchildren.

Later in life Raymond became a member of Shiloh Seventh Day Adventist Church in Petersburg, VA.

Raymond leaves to cherish and treasure his memory: two sons from his union with Carol Gilbert;  Tory Gilbert (wife Corinne Gilbert), Tracy Gilbert and stepson, Troy Corley. He also leaves seven grandchildren, Tracy, Damon, Zyaire, Brandon, Aaliyah, Tra'Shae and Chelsea; and a host of other relatives and friends.
