Gil and I were pals at Strake Jesuit College Prep in Houston, graduating in 1967. Gil was a wonderful friend-smart, loving, with a big and caring heart. He was greatly admired and loved by all of his Jesuit buddies. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Gil-we love you!
I knew Gil 40 years ago, but had lost track of him long ago. I am so very happy to know that he had a lovely family and focused his efforts where they were needed most: on his daughters. I always thought he was fun and very intelligent, and I respect him even more now, learning what he did with his life. I am so deeply sorry for your loss of such a fine man.
I was so shocked to learn of his passing. A truly good guy.
Diana, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Diana, Jessica and MacKenzie: I am so sorry to hear about the sudden illness and death of Gil. I know he loved you all greatly and will surely be missed. Lifting you up in prayers and thoughts, for peace and comfort from God.
We are sad to hear the news. You all are in our thoughts and prayers! The Tschiemer family(Ralph, Elizabeth, Allison, Brian and Chris)
This is all so sudden. I last saw Gil at our semi annual luncheon with our Strake Jesuit graduating class of '67. He was his usual warm, glad to see everybody, self; no indication of what little time he had left. I've known Gil since he started at Holy Ghost grade school, 'way back when and was his classmate thru high school. Good athlete, good jump shot and he always played at 100%. Time and raising our families have separated us for many years but I have been grateful for the too brief visits at our luncheons. We'll miss you, Gil
Diana, Jessica & MacKenzie. I am one of the tennis players that played with Gil at Fretz. I enjoyed his sense of humor, and quick wit and wanted you to know he talked about you a lot. I always enjoyed playing tennis with him because he was such a positive person. L.R.Denton
Diana, Jessica, and Mackenzie, I am sorry for your loss. Gil will be missed by his neighbors. I knew him to be a great father, who was very proud of his girls.
He will bind up the broken-hearted and comfort all the mourning ones” Isaiah 61:1,2. With Sympathy...
Diana, I was so sorry to hear about the death of your husband. I regret that I did not have the privilege of meeting him as he was such a loving and committed individual. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your family. Roxana
Diana. Words cannot express the sorrow one feels with the loss of a beloved husband, father, brother, uncle or friend of nearly 40 years. Gil was all of those - and more. His positive attitude inspired all those around him, and his sense of humor could bring levity to the most difficult of situations. I am so glad I had the opportunity to spend a day this last September with Gil and Jim Guay when they visited and we relived old memories, resolving to have our 40th reunion together in 2013. Although that won't be possible, I'm very grateful to have spent our 39th together. My deepest sympathies to the Naert/Norton Family.
My deepest sympathies to Diana and family on the loss of Gil, beloved husband and father. My prayers are with you.
Diane,Jess, & Mackenzie, so saddened by your loss. I will always remember Gil's wonderful smile and the love and pride he had for his family.
My deepest condolences to the Naert/Norton families on their loss of a wonderful father and husband. Terry Tomsick
