Funeral for Robert J. Gill, M.D.

July 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am

I believe Bob Gill, or Dr. Gill as so many knew him, was the oldest member of record of Christ Church when he died at home this past week, surrounded by his family, at peace and with a faith remarkable in the “sure and certain hope of the Resurrection.”  He was 96.

Dr. Gill served on the Vestry for 40  years–1956 to 1996–and as Trustee of the Christ Church Preservation Trust for 30 years.  His funeral will be a celebration of God’s grace, Bob’s life, and the community of faith–Christ Church–that sustained him for decades, and to which he gave so much love, support and leadership.

As the old hymn sings, “We sing a song of the saints of God, patient and brave and true, who toiled and fought and lived and died for the Lord they loved and knew.  And one was a doctor. . . .”

Rest eternal grant to Robert, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon him.

Timothy Safford
