Lyle Gordon Gill
94, of Indianapolis, was welcomed into eternal life on November 15, 2013. Lyle was born to Grace Gertrude Logan Gill and Christian William Gill on January 7, 1919 in Edinburgh, IN. On August 27, 1948, he married Geraldine Marie Rumage, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his two children, Marilyn Ross of Indianapolis and Thomas Gill (Jacqueline) of Granger, IN, and three grandchildren, Brandon, Lauren and Kelsey Gill of Granger.

Lyle, known to his friends as "Speed," was a veteran of the 145th Infantry of the U.S. Army, and was awarded a Bronze Star for his service in the Asiatic-Pacific theater during WWII, including the Northern Solomons and Luzon.

Lyle was a salesman at Hamilton-Harris Co. in Indianapolis for 23 years, retiring in 1985. He also worked for many years at Weddle's Drug Store in Indianapolis. He was an avid golfer, bowler, and bridge player, and he loved playing board games and card games with his family. Lyle and Geri also loved to attend antique auctions and had a booth at the Gray Goose Antique Market in Franklin for more than 25 years.

Private services will be held, with interment at Our Lady of Peace Cemetery in Indianapolis.
