Dr. Charles Leigh Gill died on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 in Winter Park, after an extended illness. Born in Montgomery in 1943, Leigh attended Sidney Lanier High School, the University of Alabama and the Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine. He owned a practice for many years in Winter Park, FL. Dr. Gill was an avid hunter and outdoorsman, and maintained his lifelong ties to Alabama and to his friends and family here. He is survived by his daughters Kerrie Leigh Gill and Katie Gill Warner, two grandchildren, Jack Nelson Warner and Ella Lou Warner, and by his older brothers Dr. Gordon N. Gill and Richard H. Gill. One of his biggest passions was the El Hogar orphanage and agricultural school in Honduras, where he created and developed a dairy farm for orphan children. Over the years, his work and devotion saved and improved the lives of thousands of children and animals. A celebration of his life will be held in Lake Martin, AL in 2018.
