One of the most beloved teachers at Troy High has been called to Heaven

I am passing on some sad news on the recent passing on July 17, 2015 of a former THS English teacher (and cafeteria monitor) Marshall K. Gillette

He was born on October 29, 1927 in Little Falls the son of the late John H. and Eva (Kresge) Gillette.

He was a graduate of Little Falls High School class of 1945, where he was well known for his time spent on the football field. Following his service to our country in the US Army he attended St. Lawrence University from 1949-1953 receiving his Master’s Degree in Education and continued his college football career and served as head master of a campus dormitory. He was also proud of the fact that he was the first in his family to attend college.

Mr. Gillette was a veteran of World War II serving with the US Army. Entering the service on January 24, 1946 in Albany. He served with the 10th Constabulary Regiment Band both here in the states and in Germany, where he was a drum major, baritone and pianist entertaining the troops.

After the war he played football for the Little Falls Veterans semi pro team and worked for the former Hansen’s Laboratories, Little Falls before entering St. Lawrence. He later was employed by the Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital.

Mr. Gillette was employed as an English teacher for the Troy City School District for 30 years. While there he served as a coach for the football, hockey and golf teams as well as heading the former Troy Ski Club. He retired from teaching in 1983. During the summer months he was employed for 11 years for the water monitoring program of Hamilton County, serving for years as head of the program.
