Jack Hill

December 11, 1934 - April 6, 2021

No one loved his family and friends more than Jack Hill. All those he loved now mourn his unexpected passing at age 86.

Jack was born in Los Angeles, California, to Hans Jack Hill and Zona Marie Hill. He grew up in Southern California and Catalina Island, where he dove for quarters from arriving ferries and worked in his father's bakery.

Jack graduated from Wilson High School and married the love of his life, Marilyn, soon after. They shared a wonderful life for over 66 years. He earned an A.A. in chemistry from East L.A. Community College and attended the University of Southern California, all while raising and supporting his young family.

Jack spent his career in the industrial chemical industry as a sales manager for Univar USA, Incorporated. He retired early, and set out to see the world with Marilyn, fish and host sleepovers with the grandchildren, and to be a good friend to whomever he met. Jack loved people and turned walking his beloved Rosie into a daily social event with fellow dog-walkers who have become dear friends.

Jack is survived by his wife, Marilyn; sons, Dennis (Patti), and Michael (Peggy); four grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

There will be a celebration of Jack's life at the Redlands Community Center on May 15, from noon - 3:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, you can honor Jack with a donation to HopeWest of the Grand Valley.

Jack and my brother Cliff were great friends from being in the dog walking from group. When I would go visit I would join them on their daily walks in the park. Jack was always so friendly and warm and a great friend to all. He and Marilyn watched Brandy for us while Cliff was in the hospital before his passing. Jack will be forever in our hearts. ♥.
