OBITUARY

Devin Patrick Hill

March 28, 1983December 31, 2019

Devin Patrick Hill, 36, entered heaven on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 1:37a.m. Devin loved his wife, Tonya M. Hill, and his children, Abram Patrick and August Patrick unconditionally. His greatest joy was spending time with his boys, whether it was watching them play ball, listening to music, singing, and dancing, or teaching them how to build a fire. Devin was proud of the home and the life he built for his family. He was a devoted, generous friend with a tremendous heart who always put others first. Devin never met a stranger and had an uncanny ability to make people laugh. He cherished the simple things in life and walked by his faith daily. His philosophy of life and signature quotes made others feel hope and happiness that gave Devin great jubilation. He was a St. Bernard Parish employee and life-long resident. Devin was a Graduate of UNO School of Engineering and a proud Chalmette High Alum who was passionate about football. As No. 40, he was a tenacious force on the field and played the game with an internal motor that would not quit. He still holds the all-time career record for the most sacks – a stat he was very proud of. Devin was the loving son of Chris E. Hill and Jack G. Hill, Jr. Beloved brother of Derek J. Hill and Darcy M. Hill (Brittany). Grandson of Patricia G. Hill and the late Jack G. Hill, Sr., Jennielee Allain and the late Van Allain and the late Wilfred J. Eagan. Nephew to Jacquelyn Hill (Karon), and Kathy Myers. Godson to Elaine Olivier (Danny) and Arthur Coste Jr. (Denise). Cherished son-in-law of Walter L. Melancon and Sharon R. Melancon. Brother-in-law of Amanda M. Reilly (Brent). Godfather to Jourdan and Jaden Hill, Ella Reilly and Brooklyn McMillan. Uncle to Liam Reilly. Grandson-in-law of Henry C. Melancon, Lena M. Melancon, Savella S. Riche, and the late Lloyd August Riche. Devin touched many lives and will be fondly remembered by other cousins, relatives and extended family, as well as numerous friends. A visitation will be held at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church, 2330 Paris Road, Chalmette, 70043 on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. followed by a funeral mass at 12:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Bernard Recreational Department or any charity of your choice.

Devin you will be greatly missed by all who knew you and all who met you. Thank you so much for being such a great friend to my mom. She loved you so much. Like her own son.

I will also miss you. Praying for Tanya and your boys as well as Derrick and his boys. Rest in peace knowing you left a kind mark on this world. All our love,

R.i.p. Devin, you will be tremendously missed. As Devins coach at Chalmette High I can say he was everything it meant to be an owl. He was tenacious, tough, hardworking, and always coachable. Devin was a leader on the field and in the school. He loved his teammates and his teammates loved him. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to be your coach.

Tonya our heart goes out to you and the boys. Devin was truly a wonderful person and a devoted husband and father. He was always such a beautiful person to be around and a gentleman. He always had the utmost respect for Stan and I as we did for him. He will be sadly missed by all the ones that knew him. May he fly with the angels!💔

I’ve known Devin since 3rd grade and had the privilege of playing high school football with him. Devin was the kind of person that left an impact on everyone he met. Not only would he smile when he saw you, but you smiled as soon as you saw him because you knew he had a funny thing to say or a silly nickname for you. He always had a way of making people feel good about themselves and was the most genuine person I ever met. #40 was a warrior, a leader and a fierce competitor on the football field. I last saw Devin randomly at Talladega and got to catch up with him and for that chance reunion I will be forever grateful.

My earliest memory of Devin goes all the way back to Kindergarten at Lacoste elementary, we were both in the Mickey Mouse class, I was really shy and nervous to go to school, Devin must have noticed and instantly asked me to join him to play, after that we were great friends...many years later I was a cheerleader for Devin and the CHS Owls, Devin was always able to get the crowd motivated and his teammates ready to play with his “Owls in the house” chant! Since Katrina I’ve lost touch with Devin and my fellow alums, but have never forgotten what an awesome spirit he possessed. I am deeply saddened by Devins passing. I will be in constant prayer for him and Tonya and their beautiful children.
