Services for Billy Clifford Hill, 79, of Marietta were held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, September 25 at the Shady Dale Baptist Church in the Shady Dale community with Pastor John Sconce officiating.

Burial followed in the Lakeview Cemetery, Marietta.

Born April 17, 1939 in Shady Dale, the son of Jarrell Glen and Blanche Ola Brown Hill, he died Thursday, September 20, 2018 at his residence. Bill lived in Love County most of his life except for the few years he and his family lived in Ardmore and Washington. Bill graduated from Marietta High School in 1956 and worked in the paint, construction, and rental property business for more than 50 years. Bill and Jerry Lynn Sykora were married in Ardmore on October 12, 1957 and were the parents of five children. After he retired, Bill and his wife moved to Woodinville, Washington to help care for their youngest granddaughters, and after many travel adventures with their family and longtime friends, Jerry and Julia Slaughter, they returned to Love County in late 2010. Bill was a retired Oklahoma Volunteer Firefighter, past member of the Marietta Jaycees and the Lions Club, and a member of the Shady Dale Baptist Church. He also served on the Marietta City Council for 12 years and volunteered with the Boy Scouts. Bill enjoyed bass fishing in Mexico and catfishing in Red River and Hickory Creek with family and friends. He loved football and was an avid Marietta Indians and Dallas Cowboys fan. His biggest love and enjoyment was his family, and he especially enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren’s activities. Bill will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a kind, loving father, husband and PaPa, with a hard-work ethic and an adventurous spirit. Bill will surely be missed.

Preceding him in death were his parents; a brother, Edwin Hill; and a sister, Wanda Dixon.

Survivors include his wife, Jerry Lynn Hill of the home; two sons, Mike Hill and wife Kristy of Overbrook and Bobby Joe Hill of Yukon; three daughters, Cyndia Olive and husband Bobby of Lone Grove, Teena Birdsall and husband Scott of Owasso, and Billie Brush and husband Dan of Woodinville; eight grandchildren, Crystal Olive of Houston, Michael Hill and wife Jessica of Moore, Whitney Elmore and husband Wesley of Thackerville, Kelsey Birdsall and wife Rebecca of Dallas, Veronica Goodner and husband Chase of Thackerville, Skylar Birdsall of Owasso, and Piper and Harper Brush of Woodenville; and nine great-grandchildren, Yasemin, Audrey, Emma, Adam, Ethem, Maudey, Vivian, Ethan, and Callahan.

Serving as pallbearers were Michael Hill, Kelsey Birdsall, Wesley Elmore, Chase Goodner, Chad Sykora, Brent Sykora, Dale Sykora, Craig Sykora, Gerald Tow, Brad Dixon, Crystal Olive, Whitney Elmore, Veronica Goodner, Skylar Birdsall, Piper Brush, and Harper Brush. Honorary bearers were Rick McMillin, Nelson “Dude” Powell, Eddie Sampson, Bill Ross, Joe Ross, Wayne Bond, J.H. Hayes, Truman Adams, Mark Hill, Jim Hill, Ernie Sykora, Jack Tow, Jimmy Outon, David Outon, Stephen Outon, Johnny Outon, Brad Wood, and Lewis Foster.

The family suggests memorial contributions in Bill’s name be made to the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, or to the local volunteer fire department of choice.
