Obituary for Ronald Rhea Gilbert

Gilbert, Ronald Rhea - passed away Saturday, July 28, 2018, in his home in Linden. He was 75. Born on Dec. 29, 1942, in West Carrollton, Ohio, Ron attended Wittenberg University and completed his law degree from the University of Michigan. An accomplished attorney, Ron advanced aquatic safety and established legal and safety standards around the nation. He established the Foundation for Aquatic Injury Prevention and dedicated his professional life to aiding and protecting those injured. For much of his adult life Ron resided in Grosse Pointe Farms, while working from the Penobscot building in Detroit. Later in life, he relocated both his residence and legal office to the Fenton/Linden area, where he was an avid participant in community events. Ron took joy in outdoor activities, University of Michigan athletics, the Jedi spirit from Star Wars and, most of all, his family. His humor, wit and compassion will be greatly missed. Ron is survived by his daughters, Liz (Charlie), Lynne (Sean) and Lisa (Randy) and granddaughter, Samantha. A memorial service will be held 3:30 pm, Saturday, August 4, 2018 at Sharp Funeral Homes, Fenton Chapel, 1000 W. Silver Lake Road, Fenton. The family will receive friends from 1 PM until the time of service.
