    Deane Gill was associated at one time with Ft Worth oilman F Kirk Johnson & was running his Oklahoma City office at the time of Helen Stanley's suicide. He was (or wanted to be) a "high roller" in theoil business and was involved with Johnson in the early financing of Central Airlines.
    "To prepare for the eventual start of Central Airlines' operations Keith Kale had
    rented hangar space at The Oklahoma City Municipal Airport and opened Keith Kahle
    Aviation Incorporated. This was a flight school that operated two Cessna 120s. He also
    operated a one plane airline on a route from the Oklahoma City Municipal Airport to
    Lawton, Oklahoma. Kahle needed more backers to fund his plans, so he recruited two oil men, Dean Gill and F. Kirk Johnson, to finance part of Central Airlines. In 1948 the
    Civil Aeronautics Board contacted Keith and told him he would have to get his airline
    into operation, or he would need to relinquish his operations certificate. His main backer Marchant was reluctant to invest tn Central Airlines, and offered to sell his interests to Gill and Johnson. Gill and Johnson persuaded M.E. Harding and the Fort Worth National Bank to loan the rest of the money. With the money in hand Central Airlines was ready to operate."
    Central Airlines was eventually merged with Frontier Airlines.
