Gilmore Nicholas Taiber was born on September 5, 2001 the son of Emily Allaire and Jonathan Taiber in Chicago, Illinois. Gil was about to complete his junior year of high school had countless strengths—he was smart, funny, and kind. Gil was gentle in spirit, sensitive, hardworking, with a great future ahead of him. Gil was an exceptional student and always carried a job; his family enjoyed visiting him at the Maid-Rite and slurping milkshakes made by Gil.
Gil spent countless hours in the gym perfecting his basketball game. In addition to Holmes Junior High, Cedar Falls High School, and Janesville, Gil played for Tiger Pride, Team Iowa, and finished on a high note with the Iowa Prep. He was in the process of being recruited by various collegiate basketball team’s, and was looking forward to several basketball camps this summer.

Gil’s friends meant the world to him. In his younger years, Gil and his buddies were known to terrorize Cedar Falls on roller blades. A box of $5 Pizza in one hand, fishing pole in the other, and the JBL in his backpack. In addition to the many social gatherings, he loved fishing with his buddies in local ponds and rivers; he even got in a few deep-sea excursions with his family. Gil loved snowboarding with his dad, siblings, uncles, and cousins; hip hop, country, and Motley Crue.

Gil is survived by his parents Jon Taiber & Emily Allaire (Jason Gomes), siblings Egan and Allaire Taiber, Jordan, Olivia, and Iris Gomes, his grandparents Pat Kelly, Tom & Sue Taiber, Doug & Ann Allaire, and Jean Gomes, as well as many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. And special friend Grace Hovenga.
