Eventually, when Gil is ready to call it quits he will hand it down to them. But, that day isn’t here yet. Even with only one good arm he can’t help but get in there and do his part.

Of course, his sons try to stop him so he doesn’t get hurt but its no use. Gil admits he’s no good at delegating. He doesn’t like to tell people what to do he just does it himself.
