Gilbert E. Chronister, 64, of Biglerville, entered Heavenly slumber on Monday, Jan. 29, 2007, at the Gettysburg Hospital.
I worked with Gil at PENNDOT and when I was a kid at home my parents owned a gas station & he drove the tanker that bought the gas to our station at that time.
Gil was a well liked gentle speaking man & will be truly missed.
He was born Oct. 29, 1942 in Gardners the son of the late Charles and Florence (Bly) Chronister. He was a 25-year employee of PennDot before retiring where he served as Foreman. Gil retired after he started having serious liver problems and recovered from those problems without the transplant they said he would need. Gil passed away from a Heart Attack. He knew he had blockage that they were treating with medications. All the Doctors said they would not operate except for a heart transplant because of the amount of blockage he had. After retirement, he was a real estate investor in Adams County. He is survived by his wife, Betty E. (Sillik) Chronister to whom he was married for 44 years; two daughters,Vicki L. (Chronister) Morehead of Lexington Park, Md. and Brenda E. (Chronister) Willman of Orrtanna; one son, Dennis M.
