Born in Bay City, Michigan, to George Franklin McGill and Dagmar Grace McGill, he grew up in Kansas, served in the US Army during the Korean War, then lived in Denver, Colorado, before moving to Albuquerque, where he lived most of his life.

Using his architectural talents he designed and built two of his Albuquerque homes and a cabin in Taos. He was the owner of Thunderhead Oil and Gas; which later became JF McGill Contracting Company. He enjoyed golf, tennis, and skiing; he loved family, enjoyed his friends and travel; was fascinated by technology; and was a dedicated Lobo basketball fan.
