Arthur HILL

Arthur Thomas Hill passed away peacefully on January 26, 2014, at the age of 94. He was surrounded by his loving family. Arthur was born in 1920 in Carman, Manitoba. Arthur is survived by his wife Barbara of 65 years and their five children: David (Yvonne), Barbara Jr, Ken (Jackie), Patricia (Jim), Don (Arleigh), ten grandchildren and 5 and ¾ great-grandchildren, as well as “Buddy” his faithful canine companion. Arthur was a much loved husband, father, friend and community minded gentleman. Arthur was a well trained and experienced poultry geneticist. He advanced scientific research in his chosen field but never forgot the real world of business which he helped both professionally and as a volunteer. The family is grateful for the support and care given to Arthur, with special thanks to his family doctor, Dr. Basson and his loving and caring staff, the staff on the fifth floor at Chilliwack General, along with Drs. Enns and Harrison. A celebration of Arthur’s life will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 at 1:00pm at the Carman United Church in Sardis. In lieu of flowers, donations to Carman United Church would be gratefully received.
