Eric Allen Hill was born December 30, 1954 in Creston, IA. Everyone that has encountered Eric will always remember his infectious smile. He spent many years working at East Union High School and Southwestern Community College, where the faculty, staff, and students became not just colleagues and acquaintances, but grew to be true family and friends. His smile and laughter will forever echo in the memory of every life he touched. After a brave fight with cancer, on July 5, 2013, this amazing man passed away.

Aunt Arlene Scherer of Des Moines, IA, who was there at my many surgeries, sister-in-laws Jacki Gibbons (David) of Murray, IA and Jerri Kilpatrick Decker (Curt) of Afton, IA, and many amazing nephews, nieces, cousins and an abundance of friends.
