Celebrating 50 Years of Service Gilbert

  • Gilbert-Philip-jpg


Philip Gilbert will celebrate 50 years of service at Aqua Marine Golf Course on March 21, 2018. He is the groundskeeper and assistant golf course manager there and has worked for several owners throughout the years. He loves his job, and at the age of 76, most would consider retirement, but not Phil. Ask friends and family and they’ll tell you, “You’ll probably find him on the golf course when it’s his time.”

He married the other love of his life, his sweetheart, Lorraine. They will celebrate 55 years of marriage on June 15, 2018. The couple have three children, LoriAnn Varisco, Greg Gilbert and Philip Gilbert; eight grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren with two on the way.

The family will host a dinner in his honor. Congratulations, Phil Gilbert!
