A loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Gilbert owned Olguin Concrete for more than 40 years. He enjoyed barbequing, picnics and fish fries. He loved being outdoors with friends and family.
Our Dad was a very generous man, if you were hungry, he fed you. He gave the homeless a place to stay. Gilbert had to quit school in the 4th grade to work after his dad died to take care of his mother, brothers and sisters. He was loved by many and gave to others without hesitation. We Love You Dad.
