Joe William Gilkerson, 68, went passed the pearly gates onto his eternal adventure on February 1, 2018. Joe was born January 1, 1950 in Wichita Falls, TX.

He was adventurous, fascinated and consumed with the Land of Enchantment. He enjoyed writing music, strumming his guitar and the company of his own solitude. He served a tour in Vietnam in the United States Marine Corps. Joe proudly celebrated over 25 years of sobriety with much gratitude towards AA/NA. He leaves behind a legacy to be humble, kind and always do the right thing.

Thank you genuinely for your service to our Country, and I love you Dad. Semper Fi.

Cremation has taken place and services will be held at the Costal Bend State Veteran’s Cemetery in Corpus Christi, TX at a later date.

Joe W. Gilkerson

    My sweet Joe. I will miss your soft sweet voice. I will continue to do the ancestry work that you started and found so much information on. He were indeed humble and kind and will be missed more than can imagine.

    I am saddened by Joe's passing. I didn't know him very well but always enjoyed talking with him when I saw him and felt a certain kinship with him because we were a lot alike. I'll miss him. --Deb Peters T or C

    Your dad was a very quiet respectful customer at the bank I worked he always waited for me so he wouldn't have to do much talking. May he rest in peace.
