Gilbert “pnut” Cordaway was 11 years old when he was Diagnosed with stage 4 Glioblastoma. He lost his battle on February 19th 2015. Before his diagnoses he was very energetic, loving , silly, happy kid who loved the outdoors. With a bright future ahead of him it was hard to believe he was not going to be around long enough to follow his dreams. He always taught his siblings new things and always tested his curiosity. Always hands on willing to help with anything and everything. When he found out the news of his cancer he took it better than anyone I know. He was a fighter and always encouraged people to go to church and pray. A very, very brave kid never complaining of the pain we all knew he was going through. His faith in god never faded and his spirit was never broken even when he knew what the outcome would be. His mother, step-mom, and father along with both sides of the family came together for him every step of the way. He truly was a blessing in so many ways and everyone who knew him have more than one happy memory they shared with him. He was the light in the room and the energy you needed to smile. There will never be another like him. He is always missed. He leaves behind an older brother, 5 half brothers and 2 half sisters countless uncles, aunts, grandparents, and cousins. He will never be forgotten.
