May 11, 1963 - June 12, 2022
Paul was born to James and Mary Gill, in Liverpool, England and grew up surrounded by a large family, the REAL football (Go Reds) and a town filled with the sounds of rock ‘n roll greats. He had a passion for guitars and pursued his music at every turn. In 1987, on a trip to visit his baby brother Jimmy in Richmond, VA, he happened to take a fateful detour to NYC, where he glanced up from a park bench only to see his future wife, Jill Kellner from Da Bronx/Brooklyn, and a year and a half later they tied the knot. After putting the pause button on his rock ‘n roll career, he embarked on his advanced education at the esteemed Pace University and climbed the corporate Wall Street ladder, eventually starting his own business, Gill SB. After tiring of life in the big city, he dragged his non-driving, retired wife to Denver, North Carolina for some fresh air and barbecue. There, he met 3 lads from Looking Glass Trail and the retired rockers formed the renowned quartet known as Old Skool. He also decided to grow lots of healthy vegetation in the backyard after living in a concrete jungle for 30 years. Paul is survived by his adoring wife of 33 years, Jill, his mother Mary Gill, brother, Jimmy Gill, sister-in-law, Susan Shakespeare Gill, nephew Ian Gill and niece Katie Gill, loads of aunties, uncles, cousins and great friends here and across the pond. He made us laugh, he never shied away from a good argument, he was a fiercely loyal friend, he sang his heart out and he loved his hometown of Liverpool and his chosen country of America the Beautiful. He will forever live in our hearts. You’ll Never Walk Alone. A celebration of Paul’s life will take place sometime in the near future.
