Bill was born in New Haven, April 23, 1925, a son of the late William H. and Mary Murray Hill.

Navy, proudly giving honorable service during World War II. Bill was employed with Foster Electric for 10 years, and later with the IRS for over 27 years before retiring as a supervisor. He was a member of the Father Curtin Council, Knights of Columbus, the West Haven Elks Club, and the Orange Hills Country Club. He loved sports and was an avid N. Y. Yankees and Giants fan. Bill had coached St. Lawrence CYO Basketball, West Haven Little League and Biddy Basketball. Surviving besides his wife Ann are two sons, William J. “Bill” Hill, Jr., and his wife Noreen, of West Haven, and Rev. Dennis P. Hill, and his wife June, of England; three grandchildren, Cherie, Ruth, and Daniel, and a sister Joan Vlahovich, and her husband Jim, of Washington State.
