GILLIS: Sanford Gillis, beloved retired furniture store icon of J. H Gillis furniture in the town of Coraopolis, passed away on Sept. 7, 2016. He was the last of the Gillis brothers who worked together in the business started by their father, Jacob Gillis. A graduate of Coraopolis High School and Duff’s Business Institute, Sanford was beloved by both his customers and his Coraopolis and Moon Township friends and neighbors alike. All who knew him would attest to his remarkable kindness, ever-present smile and positive attitude. Sanford passed away in Delray Beach, Fla., surrounded by his loved ones as he had recently relocated there with his wife Eleanor and daughter Deborah to be closer to his daughter, Alana and son-in-law Leone, and son Steve and daughter-in-law Mimi Gillis. In addition to his children he is also survived by four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
