Gil was retired from the U. S. Army and later from a career at Industrial
Communications as a service technician. He was a longtime member of the San
Antonio Repeater Organization, where he was loved by all.

I knew Gil best from our Wednesday lunches at Jim's, where he was a regular.
He will be greatly missed.

Gil will be missed by many in the Amateur Radio Community of South Texas.

His tireless work as a Volunteer Examiner for many years will be remembered
by all who attended one of his test sessions.

One thing I admired about Gil is that he provided test sessions for many
clubs without regard to club politics. His selfless dedication to
testing foucused on providing a comfortable setting for testing, building
solid teams of VE's and making sure that the paperwork was always sent in as
soon as possible after the test.

For many in the area, he was the first person to shake your hand and welcome
you to Amateur Radio after passing your test.
