|Tracy D. Hill|
Tracy D. Hill went home to be with his Lord and Savior Monday, May 10, 2010 at his home in Odessa with his family gathered at his side. He fought a long and hard battle, exceeding many timelines that had been placed on his short time here on earth. Tracy was such a fighter that would never complain. During his struggle, if asked how he was he would always give that answer that “I’m Okay”, when all knew differently. He was such a man with a strong will to fight and be here for his family. Just in the last weeks of his life, Tracy stated he was tired and ready to go home. It was then that we knew his fight was over and he was going to God’s home for a place of peace and no more pain.
Over 25 years ago, Tracy came from Clinton, OK to Odessa, TX with no intentions on staying. He met Suzanne Kirby and her three small boys, through a mutual friend, just by coincidence. The story goes from there as Tracy, Suzanne and the three small children were married December 14, 1985 and they have been a wonderful family that has grown over the years. Tracy also had two sons of his own, Jay and Terry. He longed for their phone calls and visits over the years. He never gave up on his boys and always kept them in his thoughts even in long periods of absence. He was at peace as he had seen and had contact with both of them.
Tracy was born in El Paso, TX on November 21, 1941 to Nolan Hill and Jeannie A. Sumpter. He entered the Marines in 1958 and was stationed in San Diego, CA. He worked as a welder, tool pusher, and driller. Drilling rigs were his passion for years. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns fan. You could always see him rooting his favorite team on. Tracy was an excellent cook and loved to cook and have the family over on Sunday evenings. Family was so special to him. With six boys, in 2003 a baby granddaughter was born that would be living near. Tracy was never so excited to have his Ashlyn in his life as his “little princess”. He loved all of his grandchildren each and in a special way and wanted the best for each. One of his proudest days was when he became “Papa” for the first time in 1993 with the birth of Christopher. He took this love on his vacations and all around. Tracy was a quiet man but had so much love to share. Being so quiet, Tracy was more laid back and calm while Suzanne was chatting away. Tracy would always tell her she was like a bull in a china cabinet.
We love and miss you dearly, but know you are now at peace. Until we meet again- our love.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his grandparents: Grandma and Daddy Hill, a sister: Sharron Gray, a niece: Debbie Fairbanks, and a grandson: Danzen Hill.
He is survived by his wife: Suzanne Hill of Odessa; five sons: Jay Hill (Stephanie) of Abilene, TX, Chad Waite of Denver City, TX, Jason Waite (Lisa), and Casey Waite (Rachel) all of Odessa, and Terry Hill of Clayton, NM; four grandchildren: Christopher and Ashlyn Waite, both of Odessa, TX, Caden Hill of Abilene, TX, and Emily Hill of Clarksville, AR, and one brother: David Fairbanks (Emily) of College Station, TX, and one special cousin: Jackie Lee Townsend (Richard) of Wolfforth, TX.
