Pete Lee Hill (August 7th 1942 to July 17th 2015) of Naknek, AK peacefully departed for heaven on July 17, 2015 with his beloved wife Barbara Jane Hill by his side. Pete was born in Iliamna, AK on August 7, 1942. He claims he was born under a table on a rainy day because it was the only place that was dry, which we’ve learned wasn’t entirely true, but it was a good story. He was a lifelong resident of Alaska with most of his life spent in the Iliamna Lake and Bristol Bay areas, where he was part of a large family of Hills and Wilsons.
Pete was preceded in death by his father William Hill, his mother Katie Wilson, step-father Chester Wilson, and brothers Frank Hill, Robert Hill, and Kenny Wilson. He is survived by siblings Shirley Nielsen, Lary Hill, Karen Nicolson, Edna Swindells, Chester Wilson, Ann Selvey, Richard Wilson, Father Michael Trefon, and Gloria Cunningham. He is also survived by his children William Hill, Karl Hill, Nathan Hill, Robert Hill, Damian Hill, and Laurinda Hill, four daughters-in-law, and 10 grandchildren.
A visitation for Pete will be held at Evergreen Funeral Home in Anchorage from 9am – 1130 am on Sunday, July 19 2015. A celebration of life will be held at 2pm in Naknek, AK on Tuesday July 21, 2015 at the St. Theresa’s Catholic Church with a potluck following at Dolly’s Hall. The family appreciates the out-pouring of love and support shown by friends and family.
