Bobby, I think about you often. As a child, you came to church dressed the same way you dressed as an adult: every hair in place, clothes neatly pressed, tie and belt in place. A young gentleman. You were blessed to be raised by two wonderful, God fearing parents. As a young adult you married, and the two of you raised three daughters. May God be with Billie Faye and your daughters each minute of each day. Know that you are loved!

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Gilbert's passing. My dad, Bill Gleason was very fond of him and enjoyed working with him at CNB all the years they worked together. I am so glad I got to see you both at my dad's funeral.

My beloved friend and cousin has left his life on earth for his eternal life in heaven.
Bobby was always a quiet, gentle person. I remember him as a child, a teen and as an adult. Always the same. He honored the memory of his father, grandfather and his great-grandfather as a Gilbert. All were Gentlemen who let their Christian light shine. Billie Faye and family, may the power of the Holy Spirit surround you during this time. With all of my love and God's peace.

I am saddened to hear of Mr Gilbert's passing. I worked with him and Charlotte at First Federal so many years ago. He was such a quiet spoken man and was always so friendly. Prayers for peace for the family.
