Gil and I met and worked together at the Carlton Hotel in Tyler, TX 1968. We did everything from room service to paint and clean pool. We both played guitars and sang and began to play at a free concert in Tyler on Wednesdays. Some of the best memories of my life. I went into the army before being drafted in 69.

My condolences to the family and my thanks for such a great friend.

God bless Gil. We grew up together in Washington DC. Our families lived in the same neighborhood in SE DC and when my family moved out to the suburbs Gil's family moved right across the street. Great! This produced a long and valued friendship. I lost track of Gil many years ago and he flashed in my mind today as I looked at old family pictures. I searched the web to see if I could find him and ended up at this page. So sad I was too late to say hello and pass on my love to him.

I love you Gil!

If Gil's wife or kids are interested in hearing old stories about him as a little guy please feel free to contact me.

To a great friend who I will deeply miss. Words can't express the amount of respect and admiration I had for you. I'm going to miss our back and forth banter we always had especially in football season. I have 2 words that only a few will understand but shows how much I will miss you. My goodbye words " Hook'em Horns" love ya brother.
