LTC Orin J. "Scooter" Gill, born on May 2, 1947, passed away at his home on Wednesday, March 26, 2008.
A native of Biloxi, Mississippi, Orin proudly served his county for 23 years in the United States Army. He especially enjoyed his tours of duty in Korea and the Republic of Panama. Orin earned numerous awards and distinctions during his 23 years of service, to include the Legion of Merit and the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.
Orin was a 1965 graduate of Biloxi High School and a 1969 graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi.
He was a very talented guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, playing in many bands from the age of 13 onwards. He loved to cook, and his gumbo was a Thanksgiving Day tradition each year.
