William Harvey Hill of Frederick, MD, departed this life at age 80 on May 15, 2020. William (Bill) was born on August 22, 1939 in Ridley Park, PA to the late Willie Alexander and Christina Hicks Hill. He was the first of five children born to this union.\r\n\r\nHarvey, as he was fondly called by his siblings, graduated from Ridley Township High School in 1957 and enlisted in the United States Air Force in February 1958. He traveled the world during his 20-year military career, retiring in 1978 as a Senior Enlisted Advisor stationed at Fort Detrick, MD. Following his military career, Bill continued to serve his country as a civilian in the Air Force Medical Logistics Office at Fort Detrick before retiring from government service in 2005. His final work assignment was as a Program Manager for STG until both he and Shirley retired in 2012. \r\n\r\nBill met and married Shirley Sellers Hill while stationed in Montgomery, AL. They wed on Feb. 23, 1974 and shortly thereafter relocated to Frederick, MD. Bill received his Associates Degree in Accounting from Frederick Community College in 1978 and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Accounting from University of Maryland in 1989.\r\n\r\nBill was a faithful member at First Missionary Baptist Church, where he and Shirley became members in 1981. He began his role as Treasurer on Jan. 1, 1991 and it was at this time he set a personal goal to organize the church finances into a system that responded to the financial needs of the church. As quiet as it was kept, his very best friend, his "old Palsy" was Rev. William H. Graham. Together they played an active role in the growth, building and development of First Missionary Baptist Church until Bill retired as Treasurer in 2019.\r\n\r\nHe was often thought of by many as being intimidating, but actually to know him was to love him. He enjoyed spending time with his family, watching his grandchildren grow and cruising with his wife. In his spare time, he would often be playing golf, Sudoku or Candy Crush. This is our beloved husband Bill Hill, our Daddie, our Pops, our Grandaddy Billy, our Palsy.\r\n\r\nThose left to cherish his memory are his: loving wife, Shirley Hill; adoring daughters, Stefanie Johnson (Larry) and Krystal McCants (Damien); sisters, Trina Potts and Sarah Kirby (Robert); brother, John Hill; brothers-in-law, Nathaniel Vivians (Dorothy) and Larry Sellers; grandchildren, Anthony Johnson, Deion Johnson and Jason Johnson; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Hill.
