Obituary - Robert Lee Gilmore

Robert (Bob) Lee Gilmore, age 79 of Dickson, Tenn. passed away December 16, 2009, at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tenn. Preceded in death by his father, James Preston Gilmore and his sister, Sara Rogers. Survivors include his mother, Louise Lee Gilmore of Dickson; sister, Anne Story of Dickson; nephews, Todd Story (Lanell) of Brentwood, Tenn., Jim Story (Nicole) of Nolensville, Tenn., Robert Rogers of Vanleer, Tenn.; several great nieces & nephews. His funeral was held December 19 with interment in the Edgewood Cemetery.

Bob always had an interest in horses. He had horses on the farm as a boy. That grew into his love for walking horses. He trained for several years. He made so many good friends through the horse world. There's a certain building that lately has been used as the welcome center for the Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. But it's real claim to fame, years ago it was a horse barn where Bob Gilmore trained horses. Through his years of training, he trained in several states including Florida, Kentucky, Michigan as well as Tennessee. Bob has been attending the Celebration for over 50 years.
