Esther May and Leroy Gill welcomed Earl J. Gill into this life on May 16,1961. Earl was one of seven children being the baby of the boys.

Earl had a great life. He attended Cincinnati Public Schools and worked throughout his life.

Earl eventually met a woman named Kimberly Carter with whom he shares two children with, Earl Gill Junior and Bianca Gill.

Earl was widely know as “40”, “Earl the Pearl” or a family favorite “Unc”. He was an avid sports watcher, Cincinnati Bengals being his favorite team. Lately his favorite things to do was to watch cooking TV shows while building the greatest relationship with his grandchildren.

Earl had a great bond with all of his grandchildren, but his first born grandson shared something special, so special that everyone called him “Lil 40” because they looked and acted so much alike.

Earl was preceded in death by his parents, Esther May and Leroy Gill; brothers, Tony and Leroy Gill, Jr.; nephews, Quentin, Tyrell and David Gill; niece, Anita Hawkins; and three brothers-in-law, Jesse Edwards, Freddie “Big Fred” Price and Gregory “Mr. Greg” Williams.

Leaving to cherish his memories are: his children, Earl Gill, Jr. (Ashley) and Bianca Gill; grandchildren, Zion, Zaire, Zada, Zai, Mere, Jaylin, Kamare, Messiah and Elaysha; siblings, Diane, Vera, Terry and Paulette Gill; brother by law, Lavel Wright; and a host of nieces and nephew and our Atlanta Family. Definitely not to forget his best bud who hung with him day in and day out, Recardo Hawkins.
