Gary A. Hill (1964-2018)

Gary Hill

Gary A. Hill, 54, of Kenosha, died peacefully with his family by his bedside at Froedtert
Hospital in Milwaukee, on November 30, 2018, following a long illness.
Gary was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on January 3, 1964. He was the son of Walter
and Carol (Rintamaki) Hill.

Gary grew up in Kenosha, and was educated in local schools, including UW-Parkside.
He lived in Belgrade, Montana, for several years, where he worked as a drywall finisher
by trade. Gary was well-versed in many areas, but his passion was his love of the
outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, and hiking. Known and loved for his storytelling
and encyclopedia-like knowledge of nature–birds, animals, and plants alike–Gary was a
lot of fun to be with when sitting around a campfire, working on a backyard project, or
hiking through the woods.

Gary is survived by his parents, Walter and Carol Hill; sister Wendy Breigenzer; and
nephews Jeremi Breigenzer and Marcus Ramirez. Other special people in his life
include Kelly Meade and family; his cousin and godson Adam Mielke; his Uncle Glen
(Chris) Rintamaki of Belgrade, Montana; and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Funeral services will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations for Gary can be
made to: The Lake Jacqueline Association (c/o Walter Hill) (memo: Lake Preservation
Effort, Hill Memorial), or The Wisconsin DNR (memo: Hunter Safety Education Memorial
for Gary Hill). Donations can be mailed to: Walter and Carol Hill c/o Pro-Tech, P.O. Box
161, Somers, WI, 53171.

Gary’s family would like to thank Dr. Mario Garretto (Froedtert South) and the staff at
Froedtert Milwaukee for their life-saving efforts, as well as Rev. James Roemke from
Messiah Lutheran Church, for his support. We are truly grateful.

Thought for Gary A. Hill (1964-2018)

  • To Gary’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I have found comfort in reading Job 14:14,15 where it shows that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort and strength as well, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever.
