Jimmie Gilbert of Strongsville, Ohio, born on February 2nd, 1940 in Tartan, Virginia, passed away peacefully on September 7th, 2022.
Jimmie loved to spend his time fishing, hunting, sitting on the back porch, listening to the sound of the birds, and spoiling his grandchildren. He also loved his red truck.
In 1962, Jimmie met Linda (Smoot) Gilbert, and they wed in 1962, going on to have two children, Pamela (Gilbert) Oelbracht (Daniel Oelbracht) and Teresa (Gilbert) Daly (Patrick Daly) . They had a happy family, and Jimmie spoiled the kids with whatever they wanted. “No” was never in his vocabulary.
Jimmie had five grandchildren; Crystal Kubeja, Daniel Oelbracht, Patrick Kubeja Jr., Kelly Oelbracht, and Tara Daly. Along with his grandchildren, Jimmie had many great grandchildren; Trevor, Cassandra, Alexis, Kendall, Lula, Kyle, Jameson, Kolt, and James.
