March 1, 1931 - June 26, 2018

Robert L. Gilman, 87, of Virginia Beach, passed away peacefully on June 26, 2018, following a brief period of declining health.

Bob was born to the late Roy and Bernice Gilman in Boulder, CO in the spring of 1931.  Also gone before him was his loving wife, Catherine Gilman. He proudly served our Nation as a member of the United States Air Force, retiring after 20 years of service, which enabled him to see many places across the Globe.  His second career was as a service manager in the automobile industry. In retirement, he traveled extensively and was always plotting his next adventure.

He is survived by his two sons Steve and Scott, Steve’s wife Susan, Scott’s wife Amy and three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, his lovely travel companion Loretta, brother Richard, and numerous friends and neighbors.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
