Gil also served in the Army National Guard, ending his seven years of service as a sergeant. Upon retirement, Gil moved to western Colorado, a place that he loved. Much of his family, and many friends, soon followed. Gil was a skilled craftsman, hunter, and a master fishermen. Gil took pride in helping and teaching others. He loved being in nature and enjoyed being active. He spent much of his time doing both of those things at his cabin near Gunnison.

He was a loving father to his children; Daniel, Hilbert Junior, David, Ernest, Lawrence, Esther, Denise, Heather, William, and Justine.
