Gale C. Hilton, 58, of Fort Wayne, left this world on Monday, February 4, 2019. He leaves behind a heartbroken wife, Charla; two devastated children, Charles (Tomi) Hilton & Leslie (Greg) Ludwiski; and four grandchildren, Clint, Madie, Lu & Nory. Gale’s jokes and great big one-of-a kind personality will be missed by many brothers, sisters, coworkers, and friends. Gale loved, protected and was happy to help his many nieces and nephews. He was a man who never met a stranger, took pride in his home, yard, and family. Gale did what he thought was right, simply because that’s how it should be done. Although sometimes singing in public and embarrassing those he loved was probably right too. Gale enjoyed playing his guitar and talking all genres of music. A lover of dogs, muscle cars, lighthouses, nature, channel surfing, beans in all varieties and Coney Island hotdogs.

Funeral service will be on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 11:00 am with visitation one hour prior at C.M. Sloan and Sons Funeral Home (1327 N. Wells Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46808). Visitation will also be on Friday, February 8, 2019 at the funeral home from 2:00pm to 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Gale was a wonderful person and will be missed by anyone he ever met. Gidget I don't think I have ever met a couple more suited for each other than you and Gale... The first time I met him was at Fred's house on Cortland.. I had taken Dorothy over for a get together and was waiting on John to get there when I sat down next to him and he immediately starting talking like we were old friends - really made me feel welcomed and relaxed. Of course he never quit talking but as I came to learn over the years, that was just him.
Our prayers are with you and your family.

Charla, Leslie, and Charles,
When I heard of Gale’s passing, a part of my heart broke. I am so extremely sorry for your loss, and know that there are no words of condolence that will fill the hole
In your hearts. I know that for a lot of years Gale was like a second dad to me. Always welcoming me into your home with open arms, willing to share whatever he had, and willing to help me in any way he could. I will always remember Gale in his blue bathrobe yelling at the news about something ! I have so many fond memories from those days, and will always remember him fondly. My deepest and sincerest condolences to all of you.
