P eter Gilbert

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 graduated from Granville High School in 1944 where he played football, basketball, and baseball. His passion for sports continued and he played baseball for the town league. Pete and his four brothers also teamed up to play basketball for the Knights of Columbus when they beat the Superforts (22-6) with a score of 65-49. 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.

He is predeceased by his wife Hazel Gilbert; siblings, Mary Doty, Steven Gilbert, Anne DiCicco, Ella Geruntino, Sue Sipowicz, Mike “Miak” Gilbert, and George Gilbert; and stepsons Timothy Carta and Ralph Carta.
