Gilbert George Schuler was born in Highlandtown, Maryland on July 1, 1922. He passed peacefully on Sunday, February 6, 2022. He was a brother of the Masonic Highland Lodge and a Shriner of the Boumi Temple since 1949. He lived his life embodying what it means to be a Mason and a Shriner, “a man who cares about his community. A good Father, Brother or Son. A good Husband and Friend. A man who loves his family. Values friendship. Embraces life … And always gives back.” He worked at Martin Aircraft for 24 years and then went on to own and operate the Gil Monroe Music store for 25 years. He was naturally driven to know his customers well and forged many lifelong friendships there. His love of music began December 5, 1935 when he took his first saxophone lesson. He taught music for 10 years at the McDonogh School and also at the Baltimore City Recreation & Parks School where he had his most cherished moments teaching special needs children to play in a band together. He led the Gil Monroe Orchestra for many years and most recently entertained his fellow residents at Bonnie Blink where he was best known as the “Music Man.” Surviving are his grateful family, Paul Demond and family, Marsha and Edward Clayton, Karen and Thomas O’Brien, Larry Davis, Michelle and Robert Wythe, Lisa Herbert, Michael and Jaxton DeMario, Todd and Ashley DeMario, Heather and Mike Goins and family, Stephanie and Barry Suter and family, Alison Herbert and family, Erik Herbert, Jessica and Timothy Endlich and family, and special friends Carole Bates and Paul Watkins.
