HOWARD B. (“Howdy”) Hill

Howard “Howdy” Hill was born on September 29, 1948, first child of Howard and Dorothy Hill of Martin’s Ferry, Ohio.

A Godly warrior-humble servant. A man whose love for God is the heartbeat of all he does, all he says, and all he is. Everyone has a “Howdy story”. He had a contagious smile and wink in his eye, joy in his heart and a true love of people.

Howdy’s life promise was fulfilled when he stood in the presence of his Creator and Savior on Thursday evening, March 2, 2023. There to celebrate and welcome him was his precious son, Seth, who was called home as a young man (or 18 years ago), as well as his parents, and many dear loved ones and friends, some of whom were introduced to Jesus by Howdy.

Left to cherish wonderful memories and a life well lived are wife, Cheryl (Edwards) Hill, the greatest blessing and love of his life, and son, Heath Hill, wife Lisa and treasured grandchildren, Abby, Reagan & Preston Hill of Anderson, SC. Siblings, Tim (Janet) Hill, Lori (Jim) Gasmire, and Sheldon (Becky) Hill. Brothers in law, Wayne (Linda) and Daryl (Lisa) Edwards. Many nieces, nephews and cherished friends that have enriched his life.

Howdy was blessed with special caregivers at St. Edwards-Wadsworth, Angel, Wendy, Patty, Serah and Jessica.
