It’s hard to communicate what Gil means to us, especially Dottie. When he was being inducted into the Toms River Schools Athletic Hall of Fame, Gil heard about her late uncle, Cleveland Gaiter, who was described in 1948 as “perhaps the greatest all-round athlete Toms River High School has ever seen.” Intrigued, Gil, with the help of the Ocean County Historical Society, brought to the public’s attention the history of the Gaiter family. Dottie’s grandparents emigrated from the Bahamas in 1910 and settled in Seaside Heights. Despite rampant racism in America, they built and operated a hotel and eventually had 10 children in whom they instilled a love of family and education. All 10 graduated from Toms River High. They’re gone now, but they and their heirs distinguished themselves in many fields, mostly education. Dottie’s father was decorated for service in the Battle of the Bulge and taught for more than 30 years at a historically Black college. Uncle Roger was a decorated Tuskegee Airman, who dedicated his life to teaching. Gil got displays about the Gaiters into the high school and the county library in Toms River. He got Roger and Cleveland inducted into the school’s halls of fame. Because of Gil, a sweet, earnest and humble man, the street in front of Toms River High School South is now called Gaiter Way. Thank you, Abraham Gilbert Leibrick. Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher
