We met Gil through his wife Nancy at work during our days at Centex Gil was such a great guy! Everyone at the office loved and adored him.. he was a great Telco resource since he was retired from Pacbell, Nancy would say..” oh he loves for you guys to ask him questions”. All of us ladies loved when he came in the office to visit Nancy; he had a smile that could just warm your heart, he was so polite and just a really nice guy! We were a family, shared years of fellowship...weddings, new births, birthdays, losses, graduations ... life’s celebrations we shared them all until the comp. split. Gil was one of God’s General’s within the earth. He and Nancy were a great union! May he rest peacefully in the Father’s arms!
I pray Gods Comfort and Love to Gil’s family. Amen

Dear Nancy & Family
I was so sorry to read about Gil's passing. I worked with him to get TIRKS implemented in the 1980's. He was always gracious and interested in our project.
My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Sincerely,
