Gil, as he was known to his famiy and friends, was a native of Conway, N.C., but spent most of his adult life in Middlesex County, Virginia, where he practiced law for 33 years, including nine years as Town Attorney for Urbanna, Virginia, his wife's hometown. He loved to travel and have friends visit him at his home, so it is appropriate that a gathering will be held at the Deltaville house from 5-8 p.m., Saturday, January 26.

Safe travels Gil... until we meet again.
