March 7, 1976 - June 8, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Marion “Heath” Gilmer, 44 years young, on Monday, June 8, 2020. Born March 7, 1976, in Conway, AR and a current resident of Little Rock, AR. He is preceded in death by maternal great grandparents Big Daddy and Big Momma Bearden, grandparents Lewis E. Smith, Laura Lou Bearden Smith, step-grandfather Jim J. Wilson, paternal grandmother M. Edith Brumfield Gilmer. He is survived by son Samuel H. Gilmer, wife Robin Massanelli Gilmer, mother E. Dawn Smith Gilmer, adoptive father James H. Gilmer, sister Meredith Gilmer Thompson (Michael), nieces Sierra and Piper Thompson. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins from Bearden, Smith, Gilmer and Huddleston families. Best friend, dude, frisbee catcher and coworker Bentley (Ben-Lo). Heath was a hardworking, outgoing, compassionate, fun loving man. He shared his natural talent in the construction field for many years. He could operate all the heavy equipment with his eyes closed. He enjoyed fishing, spending time with his dude Bentley, and helping others in selfless ways. He never met a stranger, and made countless lifelong friends along the way. He could make you laugh till you cried, and sing karaoke with the best of them. Sam is the spitting image of his father, and his father’s pride and joy. Sam will carry on his father’s name, strong personality and good looks. Heath will always be remembered through the wonderful memories he made with family and friends. “I thank my God every time I remember you” Philippians 1:3 In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to be made for celebration of his son’s 18th birthday and memorial service expenses.
