Dr. Carl E. Hill, 71 of Lincolnwood, Illinois, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 15, 2021.

Dr. Hill was survived by his wife Viorica Hill, children Carl J. Hill and Megan Foucher, stepchildren Bianca (Kevin) Ausmer, Lavinia (Joseph) Castronova, George (Martha) Talpos, Cristina (Michael) Rivera, and sister Jacqueline Hill as well as his beloved grandchildren, Milan, Soleil, Giselle, Kwame Jr., Jordan, Adrian, Claudia, Vivian and Braylon. He was preceded in death by his parents Elroy and Thelma Hill and his older brothers Gerald, Elroy Jr. and David Hill.

Dr. Hill was born on March 28, 1950, in Toledo, Ohio. He graduated from Evanston Township High School in 1968 and went on to obtain and Ivy league education at Cornell University. During his time there, he became a proud member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

After graduating from Cornell in 1972, Dr. Hill went on to study medicine at Northwestern University. He completed his residency at Lutheran General Hospital and specialized in Family Medicine. In 1979, he opened his private medical practice in Evanston, Illinois, and served as an attending physician at St. Francis Hospital for over 40 years.

Dr. Hill was a man who loved God. He loved to study the Bible both to learn about the history of biblical events, as well as to deepen his own personal relationship with Christ. He never hesitated to share the Word of God and would frequently reference scripture while encouraging others. He formalized his love for the Lord by obtaining his Master's in Divinity from Moody Bible Institute in 2006.

Dr. Hill served as a deacon and minister at Mt. Zion Baptist Church and Second Baptist Church in Evanston for many years. He later served on the board of Skokie Valley Baptist Church and taught many Bible classes. Some of his favorite subjects to teach were about spiritual gifts and faith.

In his free time, Dr. Hill enjoyed watching football games. He loved learning about history and frequently watched documentaries about war times and other historical events. Becoming a chef was one of his long-held dreams and passions, and in his upcoming retirement, he considered taking up cooking as a hobby. Dr. Hill also loved vacationing in tropical climates and enjoyed cruising along the open seas and soaking up the delightful rays of sun. Most of all, he cared deeply for his family and delighted in spending time with all of his grandchildren.

Dr. Hill was a very soft spoken, yet very jovial and loving man. He was a pillar in the Evanston community and touched many lives over the years by serving the community as a minister and physician. He is a husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who will be greatly missed.

It is with great sadness that I learned of the news of Dr. Hill's passing today. Dr. Hill was my and my daughter's family doctor for many years. We will always remember him as a great man who helped us a lot and cared a lot, too. I remember how I had symptoms that no other doctor could figure out and they kept saying "it's nothing, it will go away," but Dr. Hill sat down with me and went to medical sites to research my symptoms and was able to find out exactly what the problem was. I was impressed by his dedication and also by his willingness to research and learn new things to help his patient. Rest in peace, Dr. Hill. Our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

Deepest condolences to all the families and friends. Dr. Carl was my PCP doctor and a great person. He was fond of talking about history of Ethiopia and Africa when I visited him. It was a sad news to hear his passing away. May he rest in eternal peace.
