George Seavey Hill, 88, of Sanatoga, died on August 3, 2011, at the Keystone Villa at Douglasville.
George was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, on November 5, 1922, the second of two children of Charles and Minnie Hill. He served in the Army during WWII. He graduated from the Packard School of Business and attended Rutgers University. He then worked as a salesman for Uarco Business Forms for 30 years before beginning his own company, George Hill Systems, in 1980. He and his wife Mary were married for 63 years, and raised five children. George was a Boy Scout Troop Leader and an Indian Guide father; he was an active member of Epiphany Lutheran Church in Temple for many years; he belonged to the Pagoda Toastmasters and the Schuylkill County Lions, and was an enthusiastic contributor to Habitat for Humanity. George was always young at heart and always interested in learning new things, from sailing, to computer technology, to philosophy. He was a charming guy who touched everyone who knew him. Above all, he was a devoted husband and father.
He is survived by his loving wife Mary; children George (Susan), Judith (Sara), Marge Rutter (Tom), Donald, and Jonathan (Stacy); five grandsons, two granddaughters, one step-granddaughter, and five great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his sister, Dorothy Ahearn.
