Robert D. Hill, age 76, of Hamilton passed away on Sunday, June 27, 2021 at Northern Lakes Nursing Home in Angola.
Mr. Hill was born May 5, 1945 in Lima, Ohio in Robert and Virginia (Auman) Hill. He was a 1963 graduate of Hamilton High School.
He married Diana Randol on August 10, 1969. She resides in Hamilton.
Mr. Hill honorably served his country in the United States Army serving as a Sergeant in Korea during the Vietnam War.
Early in Robert’s working career he owned a gas station in Angola and then another gas station in Hamilton. After selling his gas stations he went to work for Franz Nursery in Hamilton as a landscaper and mechanic for 35 years. During that time he also worked part time helping on the family farm. Bob enjoyed gardening, baking and he loved bird watching. He also enjoyed watching NASCAR, even racing himself at local tracks when he was younger.
For anyone who knew him, Robert put his heart into everything he did. His love for family, gardening, and spending time with his wife Diana and dogs were his simple pleasures. He went above and beyond his duty as a service man, father, husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He is gone, but will be remembered every day by his family and close friends.
