Jimmy Dean Hill, 60, of Patoka passed away Thursday, June 3, 2021, at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia. He was born on October 30, 1960, the son of Harold H. and Helen A. (McWhirter) Hill in Vandalia. He married the love of his life, Judy Ann Eastin on December 6, 2002, in Salem and she survives him in Patoka.
Along with his devoted wife of 18 years, Judy Hill, survivors include his beloved son, Timothy Hill of Grayville; precious grandchildren, Trevor M. Hill, Kailey B. Hill, Chloe Lynn Casner, Andrew Cash Casner, and Hunter Wiley Hodge; and his caring sister, Ruth Ann Adams of Odin.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Helen Hill.
Jimmy wanted to provide for his family and was last employed as a hardworking laborer. He was a proud member of the 6th Southern District Masonic Lodge, Eastern Star, and Shriners Ainad. Jimmy knew the importance of giving back to the community and he did his part by volunteering on both the Patoka Township Fire Department and Patoka Ambulance Service. He first took an interest in being a Ham Radio operator in 1976, continuing to enjoy this hobby through the years. He was an amazing husband and made sure his wife felt loved. He loved to spend time making memories with his grandchildren and liked to spoil them. Jimmy was always helpful, kind, and had a deep appreciation for his family and friends.
