Mr.Charles Edward Hill

By Taylor Massey, 03/3/22 12:57 AM
Mr. Charles “Chuck” Edward Hill was born on Monday, August 7, 1944, to the late Nehemiah Hill, Sr. and Lena Duffie-Hill in Emmet, Arkansas. Charles was affectionately known as Hokie. Early in life, he united with Beebe Memorial C.M.E. Church where he faithfully attended with his grandmother Mrs. Sarah Duffie and served as an altar boy.
Years later the family relocated to Seattle, Washington. Charles attended Seattle Public Schools and graduated from Garfield High School in 1962, before enlisting to the United States Air Force as an Airman. During his service, he was able to complete his overseas tour of duty at Goose Bay Labrador Air Force Base prior to carrying out his military assignment at Barksdale Air Force Base.
Charles met and joined in wedlock the late Armanda Harris-Hill while working together at Hudson Foods Inc. From this union two girls were born, Yvonne and Selena. His employment history also included The Boeing Company and Buffalo Industries, retiring after 20 years.
Along with his beloved baby sister, Delois Hill, Chuck returned to his hometown of Hope, AR in 2006. He enjoyed his family and friends until he received his heavenly wings on Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
Chuck was a very outgoing person, knew no stranger, and will be truly missed for his famous sayings such as “Sho’u Right, Go Find Yo’ Self Some Business, You Don’t Hear Me Tho, and God Bless That Child Who Has His Own!” just to name a few. He loved his blue and white cans, belt buckles, westerns, wrestling, and working in his yard – which was his pride and joy to be called The LAWN Ranger.
He was preceded in death by his beloved grandparents, loving parents, sister Delois Hill, and his niece Sheila D. Hill.
Those remaining to cherish his memory are his two daughters, Yvonne Hill of Texarkana, Texas and Selena (Detrich) Young of Hope, AR; six grandchildren, Fredrick Muldrew, Jr., Keyshun and Tre’Von Stuart, Triston and Trendyn “Leroy” Young, and his only granddaughter, Zahria Woods; one brother, Nehemiah (Olena) Hill, Jr. of Hope, AR; one niece, Mary Hill (Leonard) Hart of Hampton, Georgia; one great nephew, Lamar N. Jimerson of Seattle, Washington; four special cousins, Joe Henry (Jackie) Duffie, Della Elliott, Dorothy Pickens, and Otis (Patsie) Duffie; his loving godmother, Ms. Ella Davis of Seattle, WA; and a host of extended relatives and friends.
