AUGUSTA — Philip T. Gilman, 67, passed away on Monday, June 27, 2011 after suffering for years from Parkinson’s disease.

Born in North Conway, N.H. on Feb. 29, 1944, Philip was the son of the late George Gordon and Ruth Hanscom Gilman. He was a graduate of Fryeburg Academy, attended the University of Maine at Orono, and served in the Army Reserves.

But even more, he will be remembered for his creativity, his sense of humor, and for the humble and gracious manner in which he lived his life.

Philip was predeceased by an infant brother, John G. Gilman.

He is survived by his wife Melinda (McGraw) of 11 1/2 years; one stepson; a sister, Emily “Ann” (Gilman) Stocker of Augusta.
