Gilbert, Dominic DELMAR Dominic Gregory Gilbert passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, after a long illness. He was born on March 12, 1934, at his home, Carpenters, in Shipley, Sussex, England to Roland and Kathleen (Reynolds) Gilbert. One of 11 children, he immigrated to the United States and in his business career rose to the level of group S.V.P. - Special Operations - Bank of New York.
