Kenneth R. Hill, of Burlington, NC, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 12, 2022. He was born in Randolph County, NC, on October 31, 1937 to the late John and Lena Hill.
Ken was a faithful servant of the church, teaching adult Sunday School classes and serving in a variety of capacities over the decades. Fascinated by electronics, he enjoyed working in this field at Western Electric for thirty-one years. A more selfless person would be difficult to find—always ready to lend a hand, but never asking for one. Kenneth seemed able to do just about anything; he was brilliant and loved to build, invent, and tinker to the very end. And as a Dad, he was an ever-strong, consistent role model on how to live life and think of others.
Kenneth was preceded in death by his wife of fifty-nine years, Gladys Hill, and is survived by two sons: Barry R. Hill and wife, Shelley, of Camp Hill, PA, and Scott Hill and wife, Grace, of Shaker Heights, OH, along with grandchildren Jonathan, Jenna, and Graham. Kenneth was preceded in death by three brothers: Bobby, Bill, and Al Hill.
The family would like to express their profound gratitude for neighbors Cyrus Wells and Earl Hudson, Pastor Tom Barton, and special family friend Patty Farlow for their dedicated support and courageous help at a critical time. You will never be forgotten.
Memorials may be directed to Graham Friends Church, 700 North Main Street, Graham, NC 27253.
