Hill was born in 1921 to a farm family in Seminole County, Okla.

After four years in the military, he returned to the U.S. and used 48 months of the GI Bill, eventually earning three college degrees.

He is retired from the Public Schools of Montgomery County, Md.

He and his wonderful wife of 65 years have a great time—reading, discussing every subject under the sun, and working crossword puzzles.

They are convinced that working crossword puzzles together is the source of a happy marriage.
