GILL - Thomas R., of Westwood, formerly of Roslindale, died May 28th 2015.

Beloved husband of Martha (Hanley) Gill for 41 years. Loving father of Matthew Thomas Gill and Lisa Catherine Gill, both of Boston. Loving brother of Robert James Gill and his wife Virginia of Brookline, Jean Howard-Brissette and her husband Jack of Walpole, MaryAnn Saurino and her husband Joseph of Norfolk, James Patrick Gill and his wife Michele of Walpole, and Joseph Michael Gill of Plymouth.

Tom was a graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology and the Boston Architectural Center. He was a residential builder and architect, and owner of Gill Construction Company. In his later career, he was a finish carpenter with the Carpenters Local 275 union in Newton. Tom had a passion for the outdoors, and could often be found fishing, kayaking, skiing, golfing, coaching youth sports, or volunteering with the Westwood Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
