THEY FORGOT HIS DAUGHTER DEBORAH JEAN GILLIG THWEATT NO ONE NOTIFIED ME THAT MY DAD DIED
So sorry to hear this. I worked with Carl and he always had us in stitches. He was so in love with his wife and loved bragging about the new gifts he bought her.
My Poppa was a great man. He always gave the best hugs. I remember us all going to the flea market together with you Grandma Shirley, Uncle Carl Gillig Jr. and Poppa Carl. Our time was short but none the less, I will miss you Poppa…
My heart goes out to all of those whom were graced with his presence. May he rest in peace.
Love always your step grandaughter,
(Carl Gillig Jr’s favorite niece)
