He worked with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and retired from his private practice in Columbus. Gil was a member of the Columbus Bar Ethics Committee and assisted families as a volunteer with legal aid in Newark. He was an honest, caring, and compassionate attorney. An arborist at heart, Gil will be remembered as a man of character who loved his family, the outdoors, and his canine companions.
