Leroy was born February 20, 1942 in Amarillo to William and Luvada Hill. He graduated from Pampa High School in 1960. He has been a member of First Baptist Church of Pampa since May of 1994, moving his membership from First Baptist Church of Stinnett. Leroy was involved in church activities such as preparing coffee and he was known as “Coffee Man”. Leroy was involved in mission work locally including the bus ministry, and he also participated in the Long Island, New York mission trip, and was a member of the Adult 5 “Whosoever” singles class. He liked music, concerts, fishing and collecting items, especially John Wayne memorabilia. He talked fondly of his days he spent on the ranch. Leroy volunteered at museums in both Pampa and Amarillo.
He enjoyed family and social gatherings. Leroy never met a stranger, he could and would talk to anyone. The family chuckled when the security guard at the hospital made the comment “EVERYONE knows Leroy Hill”! Leroy was a caretaker; he spent several years taking care of his mother and several more taking care of his sister. He was always thinking of others and making them laugh. The last time he saw his niece while he was in the hospital and needed taking care of, he was concerned that she needed to eat. When she went to leave to drive back home, he laughed and said, “hit the road Jack!”
He enjoyed his stay at the Meredith Place. The family would like to thank all the workers that took such good care of Leroy and a special thanks to Heather Kidd for going above and beyond by coming in on days off and in the middle of the night to check on Leroy.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Juanita Margaret Robertson; and 2 nephews, Tom Robertson and Richard Robertson.
Survivors include his nephew, Bill Robertson and family of Putnam, Oklahoma; and numerous great nieces and nephews.
