Gil and Mary Anne retired in 1993 to their cabin in the woods of Pennsylvania and spent their winters in Ft. Pierce, FL.

Gil loved to be outdoors; he especially enjoyed hunting with the Ami Rod and Gun Club, camping with his family, and fishing off the coast of Florida. Above all, he was a family man who cherished time spent with his wife, children, and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Mary Anne (Molloy); his daughters, Karen and her husband Ash Ibrahim and Mary Elizabeth and her husband, Gino Morra. He is also survived by his grandchildren Daniel, Mark, Christy, Miray, and Nicolina, the lights of his heart. He was predeceased by his son Kevin in 2011 and a sister, Patricia.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 AM, Wednesday April 19th at Saint Anastasia Catholic Church, Ft. Pierce. Interment will take place at St. Ann Cemetery in Shohola, PA.
