Gill lost control and was ejected from the pickup he was driving east along the interstate at about 7 p.m., Turner said.

Family members remembered him as “outgoing” and a “devoted sportsman.”

“He was a nice, all around young man,” said his stepfather, Robert Don Neighbors.

Gill, who had been a registered nurse for 15 years, enjoyed duck hunting and spending time with family, said his brother, Corbett Gill.

Funeral arrangements were incomplete, but will be under the direction of Golden Funeral Home in Bastrop.
