I am so blessed to have had him as a Grandfather. From the face to face visits to the many phone conversations talking about life and sports and everything in between. He always had a kind word to say about everyone. He would smile at strangers and truly cared about people. I remember watching he and Grandma dancing in their kitchen and Grandpas beautiful singing voice and will forever cherish the memories. I am honored to be his Granddaughter

Gill was a kind, thoughtful loving neighbor
I enjoyed sitting outside with him in the summer as he shared all of his life stories with me. He was always singing and always had a smile on his face. He was so kind and loving to my granddaughters and always had candy for them.
He will be sadly missed.
Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends

I have so many memories of wonderful times spent with my Grandfather. From teaching me to fish, to going to Cincinnati Reds games, to just spending time together. He was a loving man who cared so deeply about his family and he will be missed beyond words. I couldn’t have asked for a better grandfather.
