Our thoughts are with you Laurie. Condolences to the family.
As a ham radio operator, Gil was indeed my mentor. He was one of the kindest and sincere gentlemen a person could ever meet.

My condolences to you Laurie, your family and their families. Gil was a wonderful person. He loved life, and I remember how much he liked the song "St. Louis Blues. I remember good times at the "Cottage" and good times at Laurie's parents' home,when we all played cards on a Sunday nite. I remember good times at the "Ham" Club dances. May he rest in peace.

Love to all, Marion
