It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of our dear beloved John "Buzz" Battaglia on June 6, 2017. "Coach Buzz" coached football at Gilman, at all levels, from 1997 to 2015. Father of John '96 and Joseph '04, Coach Buzz was a fixture on the Gilman campus for nearly two decades. We will miss his lovable "Bawlmer" personality, generous heart, and gentle spirit. Coach Buzz loved Gilman, and we love him! Rest in peace, dear friend!!
