It is with great sadness that I must inform you that our father, Gale Abbott, passed away peacefully October 17th at the Hadlow Hospice Center in Jacksonville, FL. Mom and sister Nancy were with him at the time of death.
On June 28 was moved to the Hospice at Mayo Clinic and informed that he had 10 days to two weeks to live. After nearly a month at that hospice center, he was sent home for home hospice care on July 27. He remained at home until last Monday when he was taken to Hadlow Center. He fought valiantly, but kidney failure took its toll. We were blessed to have dad with us for nearly four months after the initial diagnosis, and during that time were able to celebrate his 94th birthday. He passed away this morning just one week short of his and mom's 69th wedding anniversary.

No services are planned at this time.
