As a new Penelec employee in 1973, I was assigned to work with Gabby on a daily basis. He taught me much and became a good friend through all the years at Penelec. My condolences to his wife and family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and in the days ahead. It is so hard to say goodbye to those we have loved. "Gab" was such a good roommate to our Dad (Harold) as they shared faith in God and many War stories. May you find comfort from Our Heavenly Father and happiness as you remember a life well lived.
