Roy Clay Hill

June 17, 1939June 28, 2020

If you asked a hundred people who Roy Clay Hill was, you would probably get a hundred different answers. A friend. A super warrior. The tallest man in the world. An award-winning fisherman. A world traveler. A big game hunter. A lost space traveler from an alternate universe. The world’s funniest man.

Roy was none of these things, or perhaps he was all of them. He was a son, a brother, a father, a grandfather, a great grandfather, a veteran, a friend, and a storyteller. He could come up with a story about nearly any subject. He could spin some of the best tales around. It did not matter if he was trying to entertain friends or strangers or trying to distract his brothers and sisters from the fact that the cupboards were bare when they were young. No matter the occasion, Roy had a story. It is no surprise to anyone that he was the featured hero of most of his tales.

Roy was born in Baltimore, Maryland on June 17, 1939. He passed our way throughout his life adventure on his way to Heaven. His travels ended on June 28, 2020, and he is now with God. He left behind 5 Children… Roy Mark Hill, Gerald Kevin Hill, Jeffrey Todd Hill, Robert Guy Hill, and Lisa Diane Mapes. Eleven Grandchildren. An abundance of Great Grandchildren. Two brothers… Robert Gwynn Hill and John Frank Hill. Three sisters… Norma Corene Cunningham, Phyllis Ann Cunningham, and Bernadine Vanessa Deitterick.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents… Robert Guy Hill and Rissie Rose Phipps. Two sisters… Della May Rentfrow and Bonnie June Michael. One Granddaughter… Ashley Kristan Dycus.

Visitaiton will be held on Thursday, July 2, 2020, from 6-8 p.m. at Shannon Rose Hill Funeral Chapel.

Roy was a wonderful person. I met Roy and his friend here in Tennessee at a street dance. He invited me to VFW to sing karaoke and we were there every weekend. We rode his bike a lot. We've gotten in car and rode roads you would never dream of being on and laugh because we were lost. I took care of him when he had last leg removed for a few months. Roy you will certainly be missed but never forgotten. Love you

Uncle Roy would sing in the choir at church
The choir would sing So help me Jesus”...and he would always do the low bass part and say “why me lord”

I remember camping and fishing with Uncle Roy many many years ago...he is missed
