I just got word that my first husband died last week. His obit:
Mr.Rodney S. Hill, 57, of Anderson, SC, formerly of Dover, DE., died Tuesday, July, 17th at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Mr. Hill lost a long and courageous battle with leukemia with his family and best friend Robert Van De Visser of Denton, Maryland by his side. He was a 1967 graduate of Dover High School and served six years in the U.S. Army Reserves. He was a 1977 graduate of Delaware State University and former Chief of Right of Way of the Delaware Department of Transportation. Mr. Hill most recently retired from Earth Tech Consulting, Inc, where he served as a Program Manager. He was son of the late Rodney S. Hill, Sr., and is survived by his mother, Daisy Hill of Dover, Delaware; his wife of thirty-four years, Barbara; his sons Brian and Blair; his daughter-in-law Jessica; his beloved grandchildren Savanna, Carson, Chase, and Alli; and his brother Rick of Dover, Delaware. His family will hold a private service to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers the family asks that memorials be sent to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, 1247 Lake Murray Blvd, Irmo, SC 29063.
