Gil and Laurie were wonderful neighbors to my family for decades. Gotta love a man that puts a ladder over his fence so 5 kids could swim in their beautiful pool. God speed Gil! Was great to know you, Andrea Grevstad.

Laurie,Diane, Cindy and Greg, we are so sorry to see the passing of Gil. we think of you all often. He and all your family made a huge impression on our family. We will always remember when our TV was on the fritz we would always know Gil would come to our rescue. Brian has fond memories of working with him at DOW. Pineview and Briarfield was never the same after us kids grew up. Love to everyone Babs and Brian and all the Cleave Family.
