Obituary for Kevin Lee Gilbertson

Kevin Lee Gilbertson, 62, of La Crosse, WI, died unexpectedly in his home from COVID related illness. Kevin was born, raised, and lived his entire life in La Crosse, WI. Kevin was a devoted husband and father always giving more then he received in return. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends at cookouts and game nights. He loved to show off his skills of his decade’s long career in the meat industry by firing up the grill and constantly testing new recipes. His career consisted of working at Quillin’s for over 30 years and Hansen IGA for the past several years. In his life and work, he met so many wonderful people, greeting everyone he met, striking up conversations when he could. He kept the family together by renewing the Gilbertson family picnic. Kevin’s favorite hobbies were golfing, woodworking, and getting beat by his children in ping pong. He also enjoyed walking down at Goose Island with his “fur baby” Rosie and enjoyed testing his amateur photography skills with sunset pictures. Kevin is survived by his loving wife Mary; his children, Emily and Jared (Michelle); and two sisters, Linda (Scott) and Pam (Jerry). He was also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Audrey and Walter; sister, Valerie; and brother, Eric; A Celebration of Life will be held from 11 am until 2 pm, on Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021, at the Jandt-Fredrickson Funeral, Woodruff Chapel, La Crosse, 4239 Mormon Coulee Road.
