John Allan Pace, known in our community and across the nation as JP Gill, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 20, 2023, from complications due to an infection.
JP was a larger-than-life community figure who lit up a room wherever he went. He loved to be the life of the party and everyone’s best friend. His heart wasn’t large enough to spread the amount of love he felt. JP Gill was his chosen stage name when he performed at fundraisers. He was often seen at fundraising events, donating his time, money, and efforts to raise a dollar at a time to help anyone who was less fortunate and needed help, especially with anyone with HIV. This was a cause that was dear to him.
