Other Comments:
Gil was my very good friend while we were stationed together at Fleet Activities, Yokosuka, Japan.  I thank Gil for advancing my indoctrination into Japanese culture.  Gil and his girl friend Chiyoko had me over to their house in Yokosuka many times.  I recall that Chiyoko treated Gil as if he were a "King" and likewise Gil treated Chiyoko as a "Queen."  They were two people deeply in love with one another. 

Gil was just a good ol country boy from Oklahoma.  His mannerisms, feisty attitude, and rough language turned alot of people off but inside that rough exterior of his was a heart of gold.  Gil would do anything for you if you were his friend and most anything if you were not.  He was a great guy and is missed.

RIP tomodachi.
