We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved father passed away unexpectedly early Wednesday morning from a heart attack. He had just returned from an extended visit with his sons and grandchildren, and got to visit a dream skate spot in Albuquerque. We are grateful for your prayers during this time and plan to have a memorial in his honor next Wednesday, April 7. More details to come. E.R. Gilmore Conor Gilmore Rachel Gilmore Thad Gilmore.
