The Milanese family has started the Gabe Milanese Jr. Foundation whose intent is to continue to sponsor “Team Gabe” to help find a cure for brain tumors.
Gabe Milanese, Jr. passed away on July 25, 2013 after fighting a long battle against brain cancer, but Gabe’s memory lives on.
We remember Gabe as a devoted husband, caring father, loving son, big brother, and honest businessman who enjoyed life.
Gabe chose to be a nice guy. That choice made him a great man who was beloved by many.
Gabe was born the same year as Milanese Remodeling. He and the business grew up together. Gabe loved working with his hands and was very talented. He learned to install storm windows, doors and awnings by age 12. He was already a foreman of his own crew at 16.
After Gabe graduated Goldey Beacom College with a business degree, he began managing Milanese Remodeling. Gabe was the first to introduce every major exterior remodeling product, from the replacement window and door to insulated siding and motorized awnings.
Gabe was the president of Milanese Remodeling for over 25 years. Gabe especially enjoyed solving problems for his many clients. You became his friends. He loved you and so many have told us you loved him, too.
Gabe celebrated 31 years of marriage devoted to his wife, Trish Milanese, who worked by his side at Milanese Remodeling for 33 years. Gabe loved, protected and provided for his 2 children, Theresa & Gabriel.
Gabe set a good example for his brothers and sister. Gabe’s mother and his father taught him the difference between right and wrong. He always did his best, was polite, kind, courteous and never drank, smoked or cursed.
Gabe chose to be a hard working and honest businessman who treated employees, clients, colleagues and all he dealt with fairly and respectfully.
Gabe was slow to anger, quick to forgive and very patient with others. Gabe left a family and a community who will miss him dearly.
Gabe lived a life we could all be proud of…
In order to honor Gabe and give back to others, the team at Milanese Remodeling has formed Team Gabe. We participate in annual events like the Race for Hope, which we have walked in six times, and our annual Beef & Beer fundraiser.
