William Kelley HillFebruary 25, 1943 ~ February 26, 2017 (age 74)
Mr. William Kelley “Bill” Hill, 74, beloved husband of Nancy A. Hill and a resident of Oak Hall, VA, passed away Sunday, February 26, 2017 surrounded by his loving family.
Born February 25, 1943 in Nassawadox, VA, he was a son of the late William Edward Hill and Grace Kelley Hill. Following graduation from Northampton High School, Bill served his country in the United States Coast Guard, where he specialized in communications. Upon his return to the Shore, he began working for the former C&P Telephone Company, retiring in December of 1992. He was a member of Red Bank Baptist Church and the Eastern Shore Anglers Club. Bill loved going fishing and camping with his family, and there was nothing he cherished more than time spent with those he loved. Once his illness kept him from casting a line, Bill spent a lot of his time playing poker on his Kindle. He will forever be remembered for his courage and strength, and especially for his unwavering dedication to his loved ones.
In addition to his loving wife, and best friend, of thirty-two years, Bill is survived by three children, Donna Faye Phillips and husband Parks of Parksley, VA, Brian Kelley Hill and wife Beverly of Parksley, Lisa Hill Gibb and husband Gary of Melfa; step-daughter, Alisa G.
