OBITUARY

Levi Harvey Hill Jr.

June 14, 1948April 16, 2021

Levi Harvey Hill Jr., of Richmond, California, was the 2nd of nine children born to the proud parents Levi Harvey Hill, Sr. and Carrie Mae Anderson Hill on June 14, 1948 in Monroe, Louisiana.

In 1951, the family moved to Richmond, CA where they united with Providence Baptist Church in Richmond under the leadership of Pastor D. LeVeaux.

In 1953, he started kindergarten at Cortez Elementary School and later transferred to Coronado Elementary School. He attended Roosevelt Junior High and Harry Ells High School, excelling in Track & Field and graduated in June 1966.

After graduation, Levi worked at E & H Electronics until he was drafted into the U. S. Army in 1967. He was stationed in the DMZ in Korea and honorably discharged in 1969. After returning to Richmond, Levi attended Contra Costa College and obtained his degree in Automotive Mechanics.

Levi worked at the Mare Island Shipyard in Vallejo, CA in the early 1970's, as a submarine machinist until his retirement in 1995. After his retirement, he became a freelance photographer, self-employed auto mechanic and a "jack of all trades."

Levi was always helping someone. His mantra was "If I can, help somebody."

On Friday, April 16, 2021, after a beautiful day with his family, God called Levi home and he quietly and calmly answered His call.

Levi, you were such a wonderful friend and “brother” to my family; the Spencer family. We all loved you like a brother. I know that you are at home with the Lord and continuing to watch over your family and friends. When we met at various memorial services over the years, we would always make the joke that “we have to stop meeting like this!” I’ll miss you so much. You were my brother number six! Rest in the arms of the Lord.
