Hill JohnHILL, John Rowland - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John ‘Jack’ Rowland Hill.

To the end he was marked by a youthful spirit, quick wit, being an astonishing warehouse of historical and geographical information. With unwavering pride he held the title of ‘Scouser’ and lifelong fan of Liverpool FC - a constant source of conversation with his sons.

He is deeply missed by his three sons, Roger Hill (Anna), Jeff Hill (Sharon), Jeremy Hill (Artemisa) and grand-children Alison & Jonathan, Alexander & Jennifer.

Since his wife and mother to his children, Irene (née MacBride), passed in September 2011, he enjoyed a semi-nomadic existence, having few worries and passing much time in Cuba.

He enjoyed flirting unashamedly, finding and ignoring the boundaries of modern society but not worrying himself. Happiness came for him in simple things.

In his 88 years, he passed from formative years as a cadet in the RAF just after the Second World War, to raising along with Irene their three boys in England, Ireland and Canada. He was a man of principles whose word was his bond - and author of at least one very bad limerick.

Please come and remember the man and exchange stories of him at J. Early Scott Funeral Home, 21 James St., Milton, Ontario this Thursday, March 16th, between 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm.
