    Don beamed with pride whenever we talked about working with his friends at Hill Brothers Chemical Company. And even though I met him just 7 years ago, long after he had retired, he treated me right from the start with the same warmth as if we’d been friends who had worked together for many years.
    So I’ll always have fond memories of Don Hill.

  2. We are all enriched for having known Don. In this sad time we hope that the family may find strength in the love that surrounds you and peace in the memories you cherish. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
