Another anniversary without you. Another year alone.
Would have been our 29th. I miss you so much.
December 04, 2015
I was the luckiest woman in the world to have been your wife. On this night three years ago, you kissed me for the last time at the train depot. I spoke to you on the phone at four in the afternoon on the 5th. You said,"I have had the best day, BJ and I took a long walk along the Deschutes river, had a pot pie, and just feel wonderful." I am pretty sure you left us less than an hour later. We should all have lived as gracefully as you did. I only remember kindness and love that radiated from you for everyone and every thing. You have moved on in your journey, and as they say the good die young. I know your soul is better off where you are, and I pray I will someday be blessed by seeing you again. God bless you darling.

Dearest Sylvia---
I hope you remember us from Oregon- Jan & Andy Anderson. We just learned of Gil passing and are so saddened. We have such great memories of knowing him in Alaska when he and Andy were in the Army and became best of friends. We're so glad he had you in his life,Sylvia.

It has been 803 days since you left me.
803 nights alone.
I don't want to go on alone. I miss you so.

You have been gone 739 nights Gil. I have lived on this earth 1060 days longer than you. Whe they say the good die young, I realize it must be true. And I find myself wondering how many nights I will spend missing you. Will I ever see you again. May god be loving you and making your soul happy. I love you. Ducky

Thinking of you tonight as Sylvester lies on his death bed. I can just hear you saying here comes Sylvester sashaying across the yard. He is still walking as he did as a kitten. . I pray you are there to hold him. And Beejay already left me in November. It is amazing all the loves of my life laid in your hospital bed, and all three of you have left me.

He will be dearly missed!! My friend, sometime father and a companion for more than years almost 40 years. We loved some of the same things and had are differences too. But, we always would link back up and it was like we never parted. He is and was my best friend in every way possible.

I wish you where still here!
Miss ya!

Though we lost contact over the years, we have fond memories of very fun times and great bar-b-ques. I still make his award winning bar-b-q sauce each summer and will remember him fondly each time I make it in the future. Loved you Gil. Take care Sylvia. Love, Dean & Val Trotter

My darling Gil: I feel the need toinight to tell you one more time how much I love you. To thank you for teaching me the meaning of how to love, and your effort to teach me forgivenes. I still struggle with that. But you were a master at it. I remember when we got a bonsai for a wedding gift you pulled it out of it's confined container, and planted it in a big pot with lots of dirt. When our Swans began flying everyone said, clip their wings or they will fly away. you replied,"If they would rather be somewhere else, they should be able to go." They never left the property while you were there. You taught me so much. I love you

Gil sold me my first stereo in 1976, shortly before he started the Hear No Evil stereo stores. Since that time,he has been my friend, my partner, and my brother. I will miss his lust for life, his inexhaustible fountain of knowledge on everything from sports to cars and motorcycles, his poor foosball skills, and our conversation s. He showed me how to shake off the negative and party like it's 1999.
Sylvia, you know how I feel. What are words? We are always here for you, as Gil was for me.

Our hearts go out to you Sylvia. Gil was a good friend, outsanding tennis partner in Eugene, and you two were such fun to hang out with. I'll never forget the manner in which Gil 'quartered' a BBQ chicken. Those were the days. Olease stay in touch in the years to come. Love, Doug & Joyce Rankin

Mom, I'm glad I had the chance to meet Gil and the we got to have some great family dinners and get togethers with you both. I loved his hugs, his humor, and his smile... and how much he loved you, BJ, tennis, music, boating. music, reading... the fun of life. He will be missed
January 05, 2013
Dad.....I am going tomiss you terrible. Knowing you and loosing you is far better than not knowing you at all. You taught me so much about how to live life as a good person, far more than anyone else I can think of. rest in peace Dad, I love you!
January 03, 2013
Gil, you're in a better place. You were my best friend of 54 years.....the brother I didn't have. Sylvia, thank you for being there for Gil throughout the years and especially when he needed you most. Don't forget to take care of you and know that you are loved by many!

Hi Sylvia. Gil was such a great guy - we had so much fun on and off the tennis court. He was a great partner and always had something funny to say. I'm very glad I got to know Gil and that we were buddies and partners. I'm truly sorry for your loss. Kurt Risch, also a good friend of Gil's, told me of his passing. Kent Gibbons

Sylvia. We are saddened to learn of Gil's passing. We were fortunate to get to meet both of you many years go and Uncle Joe Denson's home, and have thought of you often. If there is life beyond, hopefully he and his cousin Chad and other loved ones will be reunited at long last. I know Uncle Joe was so glad he got to see Gil many years ago. We send our sincere sympathy. Katie and Bill Corbus, and Booker Drennan
