Gil had a gentle spirit and welcoming manner. He could engage everyone in a room with his stories. He was an active member of the Shaker Pointe community and will be missed. Sr. Mary Anne

Diana, so sorry to read of Gil's passing. I have such great memories of him and a special photo of my young daughter with him acting as Santa Claus in our Route 9 office. And his golden voice on the radio was memorable.

Diana- we have lost a wonderful friend, great story teller, open to all. He enriched our lives by being himself. We miss him.

So sad to hear of Gil's passing. I worked with Gil in his radio days, and he was always a pleasure to be around, Just a real nice guy, a genuine human being, and a natural talent on and off the air. To Diana and the family, deepest sympathies. May God be with you in this time of mourning.

It is with the deepest sorrow that I learned of the passing of Gil Roy. During the short years that I knew him, I witnessed his good nature and wonderful sense of humor and it became evident he was a very happy man. I am sure his lovely wife was a great part of his happiness.
