July 31, 1938 - April 28, 2019
When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me, remember the love that we have shared and that will comfort thee…Stanley Neil Gillmeister, 80, of Horseheads, NY and formerly of Nichols, NY passed away from this life on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at Guthrie Corning Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Stan was born on July 31, 1938 in Medina, NY to the late Charles and Lillian (Bruning) Gillmeister. Stan married the love of his life, Janice Elaine (Moden) Gillmeister at the Wolcottsville Lutheran Church on December 30, 1961. They had 57 happy years together. Stan proudly served his country with the US Army. He was a lifetime member of the Owego Kiwanis Club, a lifetime member of the Nichols Volunteer Fire Department, and was also a Tioga County Fire Investigator. For 35 years, Stan worked at NYSE&G as a manager in the Owego office. He loved to work on his computer, researching and recording his family’s genealogy. Stan enjoyed golfing, birdwatching, photography, growing African violets but most of all he loved his family. He thoroughly enjoyed giving everyone a “hard” time in his own loving way.
