The "Old Guard" - Finding "Gil Richards"

The "Old Guard" - Finding "Gil Richards"

Do any of the Rec Specs veterans recall "Gil Richards," who was on the St. Jean, PQ PERI Staff in the early 50's? Gil was a 6' 2" tall, 208 pounds Hollywood handsome Cuban via New York, who was a body builder tapering from broad shoulders to toes like a Canadian Tire logo. On weekends he travelled to Montreal to perform floor strength and gymnastics stands etc. Gil left the RCAF for the RCMP (his passion) and became their poster boy! I lost contact years back and I'm wondering where he is today. I would like to make contact.
