Granville, NY – Peter Gilbert passed away on Sunday, August 3, 2014 at Craneville Place in Dalton, Massachusetts.

Peter was born on May 30, 1926 in Granville, New York to Steven and Mary (Hajas) Gilbert at their home on Water Street.

He went on to attend the International Correspondence Schools and then worked for Decora. He eventually opened his own business in Granville, Gilbert’s Newsroom. His family has many fond memories of stopping in to see him, have a chat, share a story and a laugh. The children especially liked the free candy he would slip to them while the adults were busy.
