Obituary for Gabriel J. "Gabe" Pilotti

Gabriel Joseph Pilotti,80 years young, known as Gabe went home to be with the Lord peacefully on Christmas Eve. Gabe was born and raised in Devon, Pa. He was the son of the late Domenic and Rose Pilotti. He is survived by his wife Blanche, and daughters Kimberly Hoopes and her husband John, Christa Pilotti and her partner Dane, his sister Gloria, four granddaughters, Faith, Hope, Grace and Joy Brown, and great grandson, Hunter. He was preceded in death by his son, Joseph Pilotti.
Gabe lived a full life serving the Lord. No matter where he was, or what he was doing or who he was with you knew he was sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Cross. That’s just who Gabe was, his actions were as loud as his words serving others in any way he could.
Before becoming an avid cyclist riding in many charitable bike-a-thons such as Focus on the Family, he was a runner and ran in the Boston marathon 6 times. He also served in the Army National Guard of Penna. He worked for Tri-State Technical Sales and after he retired from Tri-State, he worked part time for Fed Ex.
Gabe taught Sunday school for years at Calvary Chapel Chester Springs always showing up for class with a box of donuts. Raising sheep was a hobby that he loved.
Gabe will be missed but his legacy will live on through the people he met in life along the way and shared the Good News of Jesus Christ – Amen!
Service will be held on Jan. 2, 2021 at Petra Church on Airport Road in New Holland. Visitation will be from 9 to 11, service will begin at 11:00. Following the service, a bagged lunch will be served in the café.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Petra Church in New Holland, PA or Calvary Chapel in Chester Springs, PA.

Dear Blanche, We were so sorry to hear of Gabe's home going. We rejoice that he is now home! We spent 10 days with you on the South West Safari in 2018. So glad we had the privilege of meeting Gabe on this side of glory. Know that we are praying for you. Steve and Elaine Weidman (Joelle and Tina too.)

It's been decades since Gabe and I went to play on "the farm" where his father, Uncle Domenic, worked (actually the Harrison Estate, I later learned). That's where we learned to drive a tractor at age eleven; to catch crayfish and frogs in the pond; and more shockingly, to grab your cousin, then the electric fence supposedly to test how the current gets grounded. I went to the estate 40+ years later before it got "developed" and could locate every barn and outbuilding we explored--what great memories! Gabe and I saw less of each other over years, but I have admired his commitment to his faith and principles. My condolences to his family and friends. Cousin Martin

So thankful for the Lord's hand in the bike ride Gabe took 5 years ago that led to his purchase of our home and how he shared his love of our Lord and the gospel thru those visits. It was Gabe and Blanche that showed us the love they have in their everyday living for the Lord. We will always remember that.
Our condolence to the whole family.
