Donald James Gillespie passed away on February 1, 2020, surrounded by family and friends. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. Don grew up in Olney and attended St. Helena grade school and Cardinal Dougherty high school. Upon graduation from high school in 1967, Don entered the US Marine Corps — in what would become a defining moment in his life. Don arrived in Vietnam in February 1968 near the start of the epic Battle of Khe Sanh. Two regiments of marines were badly outnumbered by soldiers from the North Vietnamese People’s Army of Vietnam. The Marines, with the help of America’s air support, maintained the base at Khe Sanh for 5 months. Over 1,500 Americans perished in the siege and another 7,600 were injured. Don was wounded during the battle and spent many months recovering in the hospital. He returned to danger in Vietnam upon completion of his initial 12-month deployment to rejoin his Marine comrades there. He was the recipient of two Purple Hearts and remained a proud Marine his entire life.

After returning from the war, Don spent his career in law enforcement. He joined the Philadelphia Police Department in 1974. He worked for the Philadelphia Police Department for 25 years, initially in West Philadelphia’s 16th District and then in police transit. He was a K-9 officer and also worked in plainclothes. Later, he became a detective and worked in the sex crimes unit. He was a dedicated champion for abused women and children and received many awards and commendations. After retiring from the Philadelphia Police Department, Don went to work for the state of Pennsylvania where he continued his detective work investigating sex offenders. He was the first detective hired by the state to enforce Megan’s Law. He retired in May 2015 after 16 years with the state.

Don had a lifelong love of baseball and coached for over 20 years for the Chestnut Hill Fathers Club. He enjoyed traveling and riding his Harley once the weather warmed up. Don was a strong man with a kind, gentle spirit. He was known for his generosity and quick wit. He adored his grandchildren. He will continue to be cherished by those who loved him. He is survived by his loving wife Judy Feighery, his four children Donald Gillespie (Lori), Jennifer Vogel (Adam), Matthew Gillespie and Benjamin Gillespie, five grandchildren and five step children. He is also survived by his brother George Gillespie and sister Patricia Gillespie.

Frederick Gillespie, Erie, PA
Frederick Gillespie, Erie, PA

Frederick S. Gillespie, On March 1, 2023, Frederick S. Gillespie, 81, went home to be with the Lord surrounded by his family. Heaven gained a kind, compassionate soul, and this side of Heaven will never be the same. He was born in Erie, PA on November 24, 1941, the son of the late Sherman L. and Doris (Stolz) Gillespie, and his love of starting a conversation and the gift of telling stories, time and time again, will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
After graduating Academy High School, Frederick enlisted in the United States Air Force and served for four years and was stationed in both in Washington, D.C. and Alaska. Shortly after returning from serving his country, Fred met the love of his life. In fact, he saw her from across a room while she was working at Erie Infants Home. Only after four months of meeting, Fred married his love, Karen, and on March 25, Fred and Karen would have been married for 58 happy years. Their legacy of love set the standard very high for their children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.

Although he started his career at GE, Fred chose to join the family business at Gillespie Machine and Tool and remained there as the president and, later, owner until he retired. No matter if in Florida, where he and his bride became snowbirds, or in Pennsylvania, Fred always served his community. He was an avid bowler and earned the title of “Rolo,” and as a softball player, he was known as “King of the Court.” Many fond memories were created when Fred coached Little League for 11 years, and he was still called “coach” by many. In his spare time, he loved watching sports, and he was a very loyal Cleveland Browns fan. However, his favorite athletes to celebrate were his own children and later his grandsons, no matter how far MeMa and Papa had to travel. The most cherished cheer was, “Come on, Pal, be relentless!”

Frederick is survived by his loving wife, Karen, and his three children, Cindy (Stephen) Rewers, Frederick C. Gillespie (Julie) and Nathan Gillespie who will daily attempt to spread his kindness and “gift of gab.” He was lovingly referred to as “Papa” by his grandchildren Andrew Rubright (Colleen), Amanda Stoneback (Steven), Zachariah Gillespie (Tatyana), Joshua Gillespie (Hannah), and Frederick N. Gillespie (Sarah). His greatgrandchildren lovingly referred to him as “Big Papa,” and Landon, Brayden, Arie, Michael and Cate will miss you so very much. Frederick is survived by his two sisters, Linda (John) Vargo and Ann (Karl) Wollman, and he will also be missed by family members and dear friends, both in PA and in FL.
Friends and family paid their respects on Sunday, March 5, 2023, at Brugger Funeral Home located at 1595 West 38th Street, Erie, PA 16508 from 12p.m. until the time of a service at 4 p.m. with Pastor Edward Huntley officiating.

Squirrel Hill psychiatrist, Mary Patrice Gilles­pie, was cred­ited with help­ing pa­tients dur­ing their most des­per­ate times. A for­mer pa­tient phoned Dr. Gilles­pie dur­ing the last days of her life to tell her that she had saved his life, said her hus­band, Jim Gilles­pie.

Dr. Gillespie, who was called “Patty,” died Aug. 25 after a battle with ovarian cancer. She was 68. Mary Patrice Williams was born in Akron, Ohio, and pur­sued an ed­u­ca­tion de­gree and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion as a den­tal hy­gien­ist from Ohio State Univer­sity in 1972. She went on to earn a mas­ter’s de­gree in pub­lic health at Tu­lane Univer­sity in 1975 and be­gan teach­ing den­tal hy­giene at Loy­ola Univer­sity, where she met her fu­ture hus­band.  The two mar­ried in June 1979.

She earned her med­i­cal de­gree at Tu­lane Univer­sity School of Med­i­cine in 1980, when she and her hus­band de­cided they wanted to move closer to their fam­i­lies as their own grew. “We had our daugh­ter Sarah by that time, and we were both from the North and wanted to move closer to home,” he re­called.

Dr. Gilles­pie in­ter­viewed at Western Psy­chi­at­ric In­sti­tute and Clinic for a res­i­dency in child and ad­o­les­cent psy­chi­a­try and was of­fered a po­si­tion. What was a tem­po­rary, four-year plan de­vel­oped into a life­long love of the Pitts­burgh area, Mr. Gilles­pie said.

Dr. Gilles­pie worked briefly in Mercer and Beaver coun­ties at men­tal health pro­grams be­fore she found her niche at the Wex­ford and Se­wickley of­fices of Her­i­tage Val­ley Staun­ton Clinic, where she worked for about 25 years.

Her de­te­ri­o­rat­ing health forced Dr. Gilles­pie to re­tire three years ago, but it didn’t stop her from con­tin­u­ing to help peo­ple. In ad­di­tion to her hus­band, Dr. Gilles­pie is sur­vived by three daugh­ters, Sarah Gilles­pie of High­land Park, Rebecca Gilles­pie of Squir­rel Hill and Liz Lang of Wash­ing­ton, D.C.; five sis­ters, Becky Tal­bott of Galion, Ohio, Marty Radtke of Co­lum­bus, Ohio, Sally McKech­nie of Need­ham, Mass., Libby Bickley of Co­lum­bus, Ohio, and Lor­rie Hubert, of In­di­a­nap­o­lis; and five grand­chil­dren. A me­mo­rial ser­vice was held Tues­day. Obit from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Sept 11, 2018.
