Dear All,

With great sadness I learnt of the passing away of Billy Gill yesterday. He had a cardiac arrest in the morning. From what I know, Billy was diabetic but had no previous medical history of any cardiac issues. Billy’s cremation was held today afternoon and the details of the Bhog are awaited.

We all knew Billy for over 50 years but most of it relates to his years at BCS. I am looking for more information about him, professional and personal details, and if any one has more inputs to offer, please be kind enough to pass them on so that we can put together the story of the life of this large hearted man. My thanks

Warmly, Vijay Khurana
