Randall (Randy) Troy Hill was called home to his Heavenly Father on Monday, March 24th after a decades-long struggle stemming from cancer and related health issues. Randy, the son of Harold and Beverly Hill was born in Vallejo, CA on November 15, 1967 and lived in the Houston, TX area since 1970. Randy was best known for his humble demeanor, quiet wisdom, and uncompromising loyalty to family and friends. Although he departed his earthly home at the young age of 46, we take great comfort in the knowledge that he is now wrapped in the warm embrace and healing hands of his Creator.
Earning a secret nickname of "Captain" from his grandparents Wilbert and Ollie Hill at an early age, Randy, unsurprisingly became an avid fisherman as a young adult. He always looked forward to his next trip to Galveston Island where he could enjoy the sound and solace offered by his beloved Niece Lindsey and Nephew Colten. His love for friends, family, and all living things was well known as evidenced by his pride in his artful collections of rare fish in beautiful aquariums.
He played baseball during his elementary school years and expanded his talents to basketball and football throughout junior high. Upon reaching high school, he shifted his focus to drafting, where his unmatched artistic talents earned him top marks at local and regional drafting competitions. He had an wonderful degree of perseverance, patience and appreciation for the gifts in his life.
Randy graduated from La Porte High School in 1986 and began his collegiate studies at San Jacinto College in Deer Park, TX. Randy then soon discovered that he had a fondness for customer service and he embarked on a successful and rewarding early career as a sales representative for popular and high-end audio/visual equipment providers. His musical passion and disarming personality armed him well-earned recognitions as a top earning salesman.
His legacy will proudly live on through his surviving family members, which include his father and mother Harold and Beverly Hill (of Houston, TX); his sister Kareen (Hill) Farmer, her husband Paul Farmer, and their daughter Lindsey; and his brother Chris Hill, his wife Allison, his son Colten, and their daughters Naomi and Sophia; his Uncle and Aunt Gene and Roberta Hill (of Lomega, OK) and their extended family. We are comforted in the fact that he has now rejoined his Grandparents, Wilbert and Ollie Hill (of Kingfisher, OK), and Bruce and Ruth Petty in their Heavenly home.
A celebration of Randy's life was held at the Forest Park Cemetery East in Webster, TX on March 28th at 10:00 am where he was laid to rest after a brief memorial service. To submit your thoughts, please visit Randy's memorial web site at: http://www.dignitymemorial.com
