Forever In the Hearts They Leave Behind

Thomas (Tom) G. Hill

Passed Away on March 30, 2020


Tom, an Arizona Native, was born in Oct 1953. He grew up in Scottsdale and graduated from Coronado High School. Tom was a true Cowboy! If he didn’t have on his boots, starched Wranglers, a western shirt, cowboy hat, and buckle he wasn’t dressed. He enjoyed baseball and coached multiple years for the Mesa Little League, where his teams savored multiple winning seasons. He enjoyed playing pool and watching football at the local bars. He always appreciated a good pool game.  He was in numerous bowling leagues. Always in the mood for Mexican food! His life was encompassed with animals that ranged from racing horses, racing and raising pigeons, and bull riding. He always enjoyed a good bet! With over 40 years of experience in concrete/sand/rock at Rock Solid, Tanner, Cemex, and Chandler Ready Mix to name a few. He dispatched, poured, and batched countless yards for the valley. He loved work and always had the need to be productive, so much in fact, he worked while battling cancer and enduring chemotherapy treatments. He retired in 2018 with Rock Solid. He was a determined man with a fierce fight! His fight ended on March 30 peacefully at home.“He was a man of little words and no BS” “He was a good man” are just a  few things most say about Tom. He is preceded in death by his parents Goeorge and Sara(Sally) Hill. He is survived by his two children; son Travis Hill, daughter Ceason Ray, seven grandchildren, one great grandchild, live-in girlfriend and loving caregiver Debbie Powers of 10 years, brother Randy Hill, sister Bernie Garcia, nieces, nephews, cousins and an enormous amount of friends!

    Tom was a great friend of around 10 years. I will miss his sense of humor and bantering. we had many laughs and I will really miss the guy. See ya later my friend

  12. CARL PRANGE says:

    Tom, along with Bruce Bielher, were the first two to befriend me as a new student in 2nd grade at Supai. On that day, we all three laid behind an irrigation mound during recess hiding from Debbie Krause so we would not get our butts kicked. Lot of great memoires through the Supai, South Scottsdale Little League, and Coronado High days. Once a friend, always a friend. Tom was always loyal and faithful to his friends and loved ones. Tom loved the western cowboy lifestyle and truly lived that lifestyle as much as anyone could in today’s world. Tom lived his life the way he wanted to without regrets or excuses. Tom was as honest as a human being can be to himself and all others in his life. His honesty and authenticity is to me admired and respected. Tom will be missed by many.
