Gil was known for his integrity in both his business and personal life. Over the years he was involved in serving on various boards. From being on the board of directors for the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame, to serving on multiple church boards, finance committees, and building committees, as well as overseas. Gil courageously battled cancer for twelve years; his determination was fueled by the love for his creator, and for his family. Although he will be greatly missed, his eternal life with Jesus will be celebrated Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC. For those who wish to attend, a grave side service will be held that morning at 11:30 am, Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, 1991 Bernard Ave, Kelowna. In lieu of flowers, donations gratefully accepted by missionaries Bill and Linda Mercer in Mozambique, Africa, with cheques made out to Evangel Church.
