A fraternal twin, Gilbert Charles Sellmann was born to Jacob and Anna Lepis Sellmann in 1924. He, elder brother John, fraternal twin David, and younger sister Anna were raised in Morristown, NJ. Gilbert was an Army veteran of World War II, European Campaign. On June 23, 1951, he married Margot Kremkau of Dover, NJ. Gilbert and his brothers built the family home in Randolph Township, NJ. He and Margot had two children, Scott Alan and Kim Ellen.
The Sellmanns moved to Acworth, GA in 1978. Gil worked as a shop manager, keeping machinery running for Medical Disposables of Marietta, GA until retirement. A talented machinist, he was a master craftsman of small steam engines and loved steam trains.
A lifelong Lutheran Christian, Gil loved and was loved by Jesus. He was a devoted husband to Margot for 63 years; a supportive father to son Scott & Debbie Sellmann (Acworth, GA) and daughter Kim & Stephen Savage (Tempe, AZ); and a caring grandfather to Andy and Becca Sellmann. Gil is also survived by his sister Anna Thomson (Chester, NJ). Gil loved his family and his church community at Living Hope Church, Kennesaw, GA.
Gil always worked with his hands: building, fixing, planting and feeding. He loved cooking and baking for family and friends. Gil also enjoyed travel, history, plants and wildlife, and especially his backyard birds.
"How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you." (Psalm 84:1-4).
