Gil died May 31, 2011, in Scituate, Mass.
Coming to Princeton from Blair Academy, he roomed with Al McCree and Bob Holzl, joined Dial Lodge, and majored in history. Gil joined the Army Air Corps, became a staff sergeant, and received the Distin-
guished Flying Cross in the China-Burma-India Theater. He graduated from Princeton in 1946 and married Marguerite Trimmer in October 1946.

Active as a deacon and then as a trustee of the First Trinitarian Congregational Church, he retired after 40 years. Gil was an avid golfer and a very good tennis player. He was remembered by family and friends for his keen mind, for his love of all New York sports teams and love of history, and for his rapier wit.
