Killed in a training crash in Lake Louisa on November 14, 1944. Lt. Gilmore and thousands of other military aviators trained throughout central Florida during World War II. Though many were taken from us in combat and in training, we do not mourn them as they now fly with one more divine. Wreckage cleared by Lake County Sheriff's Office dive team, George E. Knupp, Jr. Sheriff. Dedicated November 12, 2001 with Lt. Gilmore's family present.
