Gilbert E. Wyland, 79, of Bellefonte, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, November 13, 2022. Born on July 29, 1943, in Bellefonte, he was the son of the late Carl and Dorothy (Miller) Wyland. On March 9, 1968, at the Milesburg Baptist Church, he married Linda L.

Gilbert was a member of the Milesburg Baptist Church for many years. He served as a Deacon, on Church Council and on the Council of Churches. He was currently a member of the Zion Community Church.

After retirement, he worked for Joel Confer’s Auto in State College as a Shuttle Van Driver.
Gilbert loved to ride his motorcycle in his younger days. He enjoyed camping, attending Grange Fair, bird watching, especially Cardinals, and watching Gunsmoke on TV. He liked to mow his grass when he was able and when he wasn’t able to do it any longer, he would give strict instructions on how to mow HIS grass. He adored his grandchildren and great grandchildren and loved getting down on the floor to play with them.
