Celebrating Bob Gillroy

Robert “Bob” Gillroy, a longtime Laurel House participant, passed away in early March 2017. Bob was a brilliant artist, and his work has been displayed on Laurel House materials, and in our hallways, for many years. Bob had close friendships with his fellow Laurel House artists and even some friendly competition. Bob’s sister Donna shared some of her memories of him in the letter below, and at Laurel House, we remember Bob every day as we view his beautiful paintings.
