    He is the absolute best person. He is honest to a fault, and was always available for me. He was my first boss who watched over me like a hawk when I was young and brand new to education. I can think of no finer tribute but to say, “well done.” Now, he finally gets to rest, hang out with Coach; just like the old days. I think I’ve know Coach Hill since I was in the 5th grade in the old 5-6 grade building. He was a guidance counselor. He’s taught me a valuable lesson then; we were in his office ‘hanging out’ talking about grades. In front of my best buddy Dave, I fibbed about my Science grade. He looked it up immediately and showed us. He knew. So, 50 years later? I still remember that lesson in honesty. You’ll be missed my friend and this crazy world is a lesser place without you in it! Peace to you Charlotte, and to all family and friends.
