I was saddened to hear about Gil.I know him from Theis he was a hard worker and a perfectionist.Gil was good at fabrication and repair of just about anything.I enjoyed all of the countless motorcycle rides that we went on with many of the guys from the shop that goes back to the 1970,s.He could make you laugh without even trying.I can still see him driving by in the welding truck with that round hat and cigar.Gil will never be forgotten.My heart goes out to his family and friends.
