Gildo was a self-employed homebuilder, loved life, golf, and his horses. One of his favorite joys in life was having his family around him, especially during Thanksgiving, where for years he hosted about 75 family and friends, complete with homemade ravioli and meatballs.
A memorial gathering in Gildo’s honor will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Blaire House of Worcester, MA.
