Mr. Mikel Clondus Hill was born December 23, 1963 in Frankfurt, Germany to James M. Hill and Rosemarie Hey Hill. He was a biological father of two children, but he was called “dad” by many. He raised kids that were not his own, but he loved them as if they were. Mr. Hill was a loving grandpa who adored his grandson and shined with pride when talking about him. He had a kind soul and giving heart. Mr. Hill loved with all that he was and gave with more than he had. His goofy humor and kind spirit will be greatly missed, but the memories with him will be forever cherished. Mr. Hill was of the Baptist faith. He was preceded in death by his father; maternal grandparents, Else Krause and Bernard Krause; and paternal grandparents, Elmer C. Hill and Dora Hill.

Hill of Greenville, Alabama and Ronald L. Hill (Karen) of Twin City; sister, Melissa H. (Roger) Thrower of Greenville; and grandson, Belton Bush of McKenzie.
