The Mayor of Glenside


Technically, there isn't such a position. But had there been, Mike Gillespie would have been it.

Mike was laid to rest yesterday after losing his battle with cancer. He was a former 26 year veteran of Abington police department, a Marine Corps veteran, and Abington Township Commissioner.

The line I waited in Monday night was 3 hours long as it seemed the entire community came to honor its willing servant.

The Glenside News (Montgomery Newspapers) paid a tribute of its own.

Our prayers go out to Mike's wife Carol, and the entire Gillespie family. We will all miss you Mike.
