MICHAEL ALLAN GILBERT, 57, of Jacksonville exited down stage left on May 12, 2005. Mr. Gilbert was a Senior Management Analyst for the department of Children and Families, finishing a career that involved work in the Baltimore area as well as Central Florida before coming to Jacksonville. Michael worked for years in theatre, enjoyed music, good food, a game of Hearts whether it was good or not, and in the meantime managed to gather around him a most amazing group of friends in the course of his life. He is preceded in death by his parents, Hal J. Gilbert and Mary Jane Collins, and is survived by a sister, Bonnie Morgan and a brother, Shane Gilbert and a small assortment of nieces and nephews. Memorials may be made to any local hospice or to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Arrangements by GREENLAWN FUNERAL HOME, 4300 Beach Boulevard, Jacksonville, FL.
