Obituary for Gilbert Luther Hildebrand

Gilbert (Gilly) L. Hildebrand, Jr.
May 4, 1947 – June 27, 2018
“Father into thy hands I commend my spirit.” Gilbert L Hildebrand, Jr. had these words in his heart as he left this life and went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 27, 2018. Gilly was born to Minnie and Gilbert Hildebrand, Sr. on May 4, 1947 in San Antonio, TX. Gilbert grew up in Kirby, Texas where he attended school and graduated from Judson High School in 1965. He then enrolled in St. Mary’s University where he studied English and History. He started working for Handy Andy Grocery stores during college and worked his way up to store manager of several locations across San Antonio. Gilly married the love of his life Kathy Jane Dugan on August 23, 1969. In September of 1976, Gilly and his family moved to Boerne where he accepted a position as store manager for Poor Boy Incorporated (PBI) grocery stores. He quickly became a friendly face to the community playing Dracula in the Boerne VFD Halloween haunted house and volunteering to work at Boerne Berges Fest. Gilly worked several sales representative jobs throughout his career and retired in 2012. His love of interacting with people brought him out of retirement soon afterwards to work at Frost National Bank in Boerne where he stayed until a few months before his passing. Active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he taught Sunday school and worked with the youth of the congregation. Gilly would never let you be a stranger very long and will be remembered for his love of people. His exuberant sense of humor was contagious, and he was always quick with a good (sometimes corny) joke or story. He was a fan of classic cars, oldies music, his family, and the San Antonio Spurs. Gilly is survived by his wife of 49 years Kathy Hildebrand and two sons Anton Hildebrand and Ansel Hildebrand all of Boerne. A memorial service will be held Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 10 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 203 Stonegate, Boerne TX.
