Paul E. Hill II, 56, of Connersville, passed away Thursday, May 26, 2022 at Indiana University Health. In failing health, he had been living with his parents for the last four years.
He was born June 16, 1965 in Connersville to Paul E. and Doris Boils Hill, and he attended Connersville High School.
A veteran, he served in the Army National Guard for eight years, and he was called to serve during Operation Desert Storm.
Paul had previously worked at Philco-Ford in Connersville. After his time at Philco-Ford, he worked at Pilkington in Shelbyville, Indiana until he was no longer able due to failing health.
He had been a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Connersville and had also attended several other local churches.
He was very musical, often playing his guitar. An outdoorsman, he loved camping and fishing. When he wasn’t outside, he enjoyed learning about antiques on television through shows such as “Antiques Roadshow”.
A craftsman, Paul loved working with his hands. One instance of his handiwork included a homemade wagon for his younger brothers that he would pull them in. Occasionally, someone would fall out, but that was always fun too.
Mechanically inclined, he spent time working on vehicles.
A food connoisseur, he loved cooking (and especially eating). He always loved a good homecooked meal.
