Matt, baby brother. I wish I knew what happened. I wish I knew what you were thinking. I wish I knew you better. You were the sweetest and most thoughtful of us 4 boys. I can't and don't want to believe we are now only 3. I saw you a couple times the week you left us, including the very day, and you were happy and good. That is how I will remember you. You would give the shirt off your back to anyone in need. I can only see the good and wonderful memories of you, mostly from our happy but chaotic childhood. From you being a jr. jr. lego engineer to being a real-life amazing engineer who seemed to be able to do the impossible, from being the little-boy huckster fighting to have your own youngest voice heard in a house filled with loud-voiced big brothers to always being the funniest guy in the room as adults, I only see the good times. There are so many. I will cherish those images, and carry your memory in my heart forever. I wish you would walk through the door at Hillco one more time, like you have done so many times in my life. I miss you so much, and I love you.

Matt was my cousin! Being that we did not grow up close to one another we were not as close as I would have liked. When we did get to see one another it actually was like we did grow up together! Matt was always the one that made me laugh so hard! He had so much compassion towards other people that he actually ALWAYS put himself last!

I am the only girl cousin so of course I ruled the roost when we were together! I have to say my favorite memory is a Las Vegas trip where the family from Texas met the Calif family for our grandmas 80th birthday! This was definitely the best time I had with Matt! The Hill side family has always called me Jenny!! Well of course Matt the whole time we are in Vegas is saying “ Jenny I Love You”, which was from the movie Forest Gump. I laughed every single time he said it to me!! It did not stop on that trip! Anytime I talked to him, which the last time was Christmas he of course ended the conversation with “ Jenny I Love You”. So those were the last words he said to me! 😢 There is a couple of other things he did on this trip which was take his Texas cousins on a tour of bum park in Vegas! Don’t think that was the real name lol but it is what he called it! He actually went around this park a couple times just like a tour guide would do an speak of certain things he saw to make sure we saw them!
The last one is we were at dinner celebrating grandmas birthday and for some reason he decided to take off all the labels of the condiments and put them on items they did not belong on! I don’t know if it was all the alcohol we all had in our systems, but we all laughed so hard including the parents and grandma of us grown children!
I could go on and on! I just wanted to put this in! Aunt Billie and Uncle Jack are amazing people and parents and kills my soul they are going through this! I know one day we will all be together again!!
I love you Matt!! You will always be the baby cousin! We will miss you like crazy!

I LOVE YOU JENNY 💙💙

Where do I begin I have so many wonderful memories with you.. From play outside going summing saying up late and just lying on the grass and talking. Sharing our secrets crying laughing together. You were mean to me when we first moved in. Remember that you and Jeff didnt want me to play with you guys so you being you told me "Fine you can play but if you cry you can play with us EVER AGAIN" So I would wait and cry once we all went back inside. Omg remember your loud truck lol it would drive my dad insane lol..
You will always hold a special place in my heart
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN
A light from our lives has gone a voice we loved is still a place is vacant within our hearts which never can be filled. A bouquet of beautiful memories sprayed with a million tears I wish God could have spared you if just for a few more years. We hold you close within our hearts and there you'll remain to walk with us through out our lives until we meet again. So rest in peace dear loved one and thanks for all you've done we pray that God has given you the crown you've truly won. Your vacant place no one can fill we miss you now and always will

Biography

Matthew Freeman Hill, 4th son of Jack and Billie Hill has left us.

In his passing he has left a rich harvest of stories and happiness that will live on as long as all of us who knew him will live. His quirky humor, his quiet concern for others, and his artful and considerable skills in solving the problems of others, will be sorely missed by his aging parents, brothers, family, friends and colleagues. The painful grief that we feel today is good and proper. It is a tribute to Matt and is a sign of our love and respect for the passing of someone we loved so dearly. But as Matt would say, “it is what it is.” Grieve for him today but love him forever, and never forget that the gift of having known Matt makes each day a little better and a little easier.
