Classmates, Dennis Challman, '67 just told me via email that Al has died, on December 11, 2009.
Dennis got the sad news from Marianne (Luther) Seefeldt, '67, who'd received a call from Al's sister, Debbie Gill.
For now, that's all the information we have.
When we knew Al -- William A. Gill -- he and his family lived in he neighborhood just south of Nicolas Junior High School, several blocks west of Euclid, above Orangethorpe.
The Gills lived on Hill.
