Jeffrey W. Gilger

February 10, 1974 — March 28, 2024

Boardman – Jeffrey Gilger Sr., 50, passed away Thursday morning, March 28, 2024 at his residence. 

Jeff was born on February 10, 1974 in Warren, OH, a son of the late Bruce and Deborah Gilger. 

He was a graduate of 1992 Howland High School and Gorden D. James Career Center graduate, where he learned auto mechanics. He was employed with General Motors for 10 years. 

Shortly after high school, he met the love of his life Heidi, while riding in his low rider. 

He was an avid car guy that loved anything with wheels. He would go to any and all races that he could. He was a creative artist customizing big cars to small cars, such as Hot Wheels that he collected and sent to friends all over the world. He was a member of the Howland Road Hounds and Hollywood Knights. 

He was a loyal friend that would do anything for anyone. Most of all he was a family man. He was a loving husband, father, full-time Tata, and dog dad.
