Dean Hille, 56, Pulaski, died Thursday, April 3, 2014, at his home. The son of Richard and Joan (Goodwill) Hille was born June 9, 1957, in Milwaukee. Dean lived in Brown and Shawano counties for most of his life. On July 15, 1988, he married Mary Zillmer in the couple's front yard. Dean had been employed as a driver for Richco Structures, in De Pere, for 25 years. He greatly enjoyed hunting and fishing, and spending time outdoors. Since she didn't turn out to be much of a hunting dog, he made his yellow lab, Ginger, into a lap dog. Dean was a hard worker and spent countless hours at his cottage planting trees and tending the grounds. He came from a big family and enjoyed staying in touch with his siblings. Dean especially loved his wife, Mary, and his daughter, Jessica.
