Long Time Geneva Investigator Passes Away

Long-time Geneva police investigator Lt. Ronald Gilbert passed Monday night after a short illness.

Lt. Gilbert joined the department 15-years-ago.

The Bethlehem, Florida native also worked with the city's rescue service as an EMT.

The 41-year-old leaves behind a wife, daughter, and granddaughter.

Police Chief Frankie Lindsey says his 16-member department has been rocked by the tragedy.

Gilbert's family will receive friends between 5 and 8 o'clock Wednesday night at Sorrell's Funeral Home in Geneva.

The funeral will take place 10 o'clock Thursday morning at Cedar Grove Church in Pittman.

Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

    There will never be another Rolo or #104 he was a true friend and never said a unkind word toward anybody. He was always a breath of fresh air and always a joy to be around. I will miss his laugh and him calling me by the nickname he gave me. I worked with him for 7 yrs and he was a friend from the start and was always there for me. Geneva not only lost the finest but THE BEST!!! May God bless Rolo's family and comfort them in the way only He can...Rolo I love you and miss you!!!
