Terry G. Hill, age 59, of Marion, passed away at 5:23am on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at Heartland Regional Medical Center. On Memorial Day, he Bar-B-Que’d for his family, worked in the yard, and enjoyed the company of his family. The next morning, he had a sudden and unexpected stroke.

Terry married his wife Vicki (Fitzgerald) Hill on November 4, 1978. They shared 39 years of marriage. He enjoyed hunting and golf with his son Jonathan. Hunting and golf was their life. He also enjoyed fishing and making duck calls.

Terry worked nearly twenty years at American Coal and the last two and a half years at AISIN Manufacturing. He was looking forward to retiring this August 2018.  Terry loved to travel with his wife and family. They had just planned his sixth Hawaiian vacation for October. Terry had bought tickets and planned a vacation as a retirement gift for a family vacation.

He knew and loved everyone and he was known and loved by everyone.

    My deepest sympathy to Terry’s family. My late husband and I bowled on a league with Terry and his wife Vicki. He was a quiet guy, but nice. So shocked to hear of his passing. Keeping his family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I worked with Terry at AISIN when he first started there. He was one of the best team members in our department. Seriously. He came to work and from day one put in 100% every day. It didn’t even take a whole shift of training and He was ready to run on his own. He learned very fast, I had just met him but, I just knew he could do that at whatever he wanted to. He didnt take any B.S. either. If he didn’t think something was right, He would let me know about it. He has been and will be missed by everyone in our department. We really enjoyed having him as part of our team. I send my deepest condolences and prayers to his family.
