Gymin’ With Goose! Jeff “Goose” Gildea, 11/22/57 to 12/03/19

By: Scott O’Connor

I’m writing to share a story about my late friend, Jeff Gildea, who passed away December 3rd, 2019 after a 7 month battle with bile duct cancer.

I wrote to the IBBHOF about Jeff to see if they might acknowledge his passion for Indiana High School basketball. In connecting with Kayla Kessler of the IBBHOF, she suggested I write a story about my friend. So here I am, not a professional author, but an avid Indiana basketball fan, grieving the loss of a good friend.
