Henry Morris Hill was born on April 17, 1951 to the late Otis D Hill and Daisy Ford Hill in Ideal, Macon County, Georgia. Two brothers, Curtis Hill and Arthur James Hill, preceded him in death. He attended the public school system of Macon County and was a graduate of the historic D.F. Douglas High School. Following graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army and received an honorable discharge. He was a jack of all trades, for most people knew him as a Handyman, a Carpenter, Electrician, Plumber, Brick Mason, Roofer, Appliance Technician and anything else you wanted him to fix. If it could be fixed, “Hamburger,” as he was affectionately called, was gonna try to fix it. He was employed with the Macon County Board of Education as a Maintenance Man and retired after many years of dedicated service.
