John J. Gilmore was a reporter and public relations specialist in the greater Bridgeport region for many years. Gilmore died on Sept. 10 at age 62. He is perhaps best known for his many years with the then-Bridgeport Post.
Neil Sherman, who lives in Stratford as did Gilmore, submitted this column about his longtime working relationship and friendship with Gilmore. The obituary for Gilmore appears below, after Sherman’s column.
