NORTH BENNINGTON -- Mr. Hollis R. Hill, 65, a longtime resident of North Bennington, passed away July 11, 2006, at the Albany Medical Center after a courageous battle with complications following cancer surgery. A proud, lifelong Vermonter, he was born July 23, 1940, in Bennington to the late Aldis and Mildred (Greene) Hill.

Hollis received his education in Bennington. He later served with the Vermont National Guard.

An avid hunter and fisherman, Hollis loved the outdoors and enjoyed spending the hunting season at his camp in Bethel with his brother Billy and his sons. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife and spending time with his family and friends.

As a master craftsman, Hollis began his career at the former Vermont Woodcrafters. He was known and respected for his fine craftsmanship over the last 25-plus years as owner of Hollis Hill Flooring.

Hollis is survived by his wife of 27 years, MaryBeth (Wigmore) Hill of North Bennington; his children, Wendy Hutwelker and Jamie Hill of Bennington, Chris Hurley of Braintree and Scott Hurley of Shaftsbury; eight grandchildren, Barrett Reed, Lacy Reed, Mikayla Hutwelker, Peter Bennett, Kelsey Hill, Sierra Dickie, Max Hurley and Connor Hurley; four brothers, Aldis, Robert and Bradley Hill, all of Bennington, and William Hill of White Creek, N.Y.; six sisters, Trina Olson of Minnesota, Kathleen McCart of Cambridge, N.Y., Joan Facto, Lois Eggsware and Rosemary Dubois of Bennington and June Cardinal of Bonita Springs, Fla. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and his “best friend,” Sally. He was predeceased by a sister, Shirley Hill.

The funeral will be held from the Mahar & Son Funeral Home on Friday, July 14, 2006, at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Michael Demasi officiating.
