James Hill will be remembered as a great person to work with, always friendly and willing to listen.

Many co-workers at Tycos Instruments in Arden will think of "Rabbit" as he was called at work and throughout the community. God Bless the family of James, his wife Judy, and may he rest in peace in the glory of God the Father in Heaven.
