    My heart is breaking for the family. Saying good-bye to a kind and wonderful man is never an easy task. I will always remember the trips he and June made every summer to our camp in Bridgton so they could visit with my family. Living in Florida made visiting with my Uncle Bobby and Aunt June difficult, but they always made it a point to make that special ride up from Portland and because of this my grown children know what a special person Uncle Bobby was to The Hill Family. I will miss seeing him on the porch soaking up the “Lake Life” and his warm and tender spirit. Rest in Peace Uncle Bobby….I know you and John Hill are keeping an watchful eye on us. Love you tons, Judy

    Uncle bobby was a kind and gentle man. I have fond memories as a child of taking naps with him and just knowing he was there. He was a class act when it came to being a real manly man.
    Love you uncle Bobby

    I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. May the God of all comfort sustain you as you await the promises found at John 5:28,29 and Rev. 21:4 where God promises to do away with all the things that cause us suffering and pain including death here on the earth forever. (Psalm 37:29) It is my sincere hope that these thoughts comfort your family at this time.
