A dedicated member of Dumas Baptist Church, Mr. Hill, in earlier years, was a valued employee of Foot Caress for 19 years but his passion for farming, along with his twin brother, led to a career that spanned over 50 years.
Blessed with a large family, Mr. Hill knew family is where life begins and love never ends. He cherished sharing every opportunity with his growing family and was a constant supporter of his grandchildren's activities.
An avid St. Louis Cardinal fan, Mr. Hill enjoyed traveling, watching westerns on television and could often be seen driving his tractor around on the farm.
