Condolence: Mike built a house for us and we ended up living across the street from Mike and Susan when they built in Fox Run. We cherished our friendship with them and will certainly miss Mike. He was a great friend. We lift our prayers to his family in this difficult time.

Condolence From: George Miles
Condolence: I played football with Mike Gilbert at Lenoir Rhyne College. There was no player on the Bear's teams in the 60's that was more loved by his teammates than Mike Gilbert. Mike was a quite but fierce competitor that always lived up to the goal that our coaches tried to teach us "Team Before Self". All former Lenoir Rhyne Bears will miss our friend and fellow legend, Mike Gilbert.

Condolence: My thoughts and prayers are with Mike's sisters and family. I went to school with Mike and went to Spencer Baptist with Mike's family. He left too early, but now is in Heaven Above. GOD Bless.
