Obituary Condolences

Gregory S. Hillman 1988 - 2009 NORTH POWNAL, VT. Gregory Scott Hillman, 21, of Darien, Conn., and North Pownal, drowned in the Hoosac River in North Adams sometime after July 4, 2009. Gregory was born in Stamford, Conn., on July 1, 1988. Gregory graduated from the Brunswick School in Greenwich, Conn., in 2007 and completed his freshman year at Reed College in Portland, Ore. Since September 2008, he had been on medical leave from Reed. Gregory had an intellect that plumbed beyond the ordinary intellectual. Guitar, piano, keyboards, bass, drums - he was a highly accomplished musician, composer, lyricist, singer, and songwriter, and played and recorded in a long string of bands from an early age. He also was a good athlete and particularly enjoyed basketball and baseball. Generous, sensitive, full of humor, iconoclastic, and loving, Gregory was a spirited individual. He was beloved by many friends, to whom he was faithfully devoted, always making himself available in a time of need. May his spirit and soul live forever in ours. He leaves his parents, Peter and Lisa Hillman of Darien, and North Pownal; his siblings, Preston of Seattle, Wash., Amanda of North Pownal, and Spencer of Darien; maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Beizer of Bethesda, Md., and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, including Catherine E. Beizer of Rockville, Md., and James S. Hillman of Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.
