Golfing for Gilly

Surrounded by family and friends, Brian G. Gilbertson “Gilly” or “BG”, of Lake Delton, Wisconsin passed away peacefully at age 38 on February 1, 2014 from injuries he sustained in a snowmobile accident on January 21, 2014. He will forever be missed, but his fun-loving spirit lives on in many ways in the Dells.

Brian was born in Baraboo, Wisconsin during a harsh snowstorm in February, 1975. That didn’t stop him from loving the outdoors! He grew up loving the wilderness and all it had to offer. If he wasn’t trekking his hunting gear through the Wyoming landscapes he was casting his rod and reel in Canada. He could often be found riding his motorcycle through the winding mountain roads, and boating, snowmobiling, and skiing in the places he considered home.

Brian was a 10-year veteran firefighter with the Delton Fire Department, but like most parents, his most cherished and proud accomplishment was fathering his son. A dedicated son, father, soulmate and brother, Brian’s smile brightened up every room he entered and every soul he touched. His laughter could be heard roaring through the Dells canyons for miles!
