The class recently learned of the death of Kenneth Gill of Lutherville, Md., Jan. 21, 2013, at the age of 63. Kenny entered with the Class of 1971 but received his degree with the Class of 1972.

Kenny came to Princeton from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, one of six freshmen from that school. He played freshman lacrosse and joined Whig-Clio. A biology major, he was a member of Quadrangle Club. Senior year, Kenny roomed in Henry Hall with Herbert “Skip” Beck III, Robert Eichner Jr., Robert Kuenzel, and the late James Zarfoss Jr. His younger brother, Michael W. Gill ’75, joined him at Princeton that year.

He pursued a career as an environmental scientist in Maryland before founding Maryland Spectral Services Inc., an environmental-testing service headquartered in Baltimore in 1988.

He is survived by his father, Kenneth K. Gill Sr.; his brother, Michael; his sister, Jennifer Guy, and her husband, Dan Guy Jr.; nieces Katherine and Julia Gill; and nephews Daniel, Brady, and Kevin Guy. The classes of 1971 and 1972 extend their condolences to the many members of Kenny’s extended family.
