Beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. Ron was a true gentleman and stand-up guy. Always dressed sharp with a great sense of humor, charming and outgoing.
Ronald Clifford Hill was born in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18, 1951, the second child and only son of Mary and Charles Hill. Growing up, he was outgoing and active, a Sergeant on the Garden Valley Neighborhood drill team and a soloist in the choir. He played guard on the 1966 Club League Champion football team, and played on the 1969 Club League Champion basketball team.
He graduated from East Tech High School in 1971 and was drafted into the U.S. Army where he became a Platoon Leader while serving in Vietnam. He returned home where he married Caroline Church, and his only child, son London Eugene Hill, was born in 1974. Ron was a wire drawer and Union Committeeman in the steel mill where he worked for many years.
Ron later worked as Head Cook at Indian Hills Retirement Community and on the facilities staff at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church, where he married Kim Hall in 2001. He retired from Executive Caterers in 2009.
He leaves to mourn his wife Kim, his son London, his mother Mary, his sisters Beverly and Gwen, granddaughter Tiaunna Hill, nephews Kwesi Ray, Darryl Wyatt, Kristopher Durden, Kerman Hall Jr., Corey Hall, Joshua Hall, Clarence Gay and Michael Jones, nieces Kandyce Smith, Carmen Hall, Paulette Arnold and Kaitlyn Durden, brothers-in-law Paul Arnold, Kerman Hall, Raynor Agnew and Larry Clayton, and other extended family and friends.

He was truly loved and will be deeply missed.
Love is stronger than sorrow and deeper than time … love is forever.
