Our beloved Son, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend Stanton “Stan” Leroy Hill, age 53, went to be in the arms of his Heavenly Father on Monday, November 7, 2022 with his family by his side. Stan was born on September 14, 1969 in Kennewick, WA the son of Shirley Mae (Pettey) and Donald Leroy Hill. He received his education in Sunnyside, WA before completing his last year of school in Yakima, WA. Following his education Stan began his working career with his father and the family business, Cliff’s Septic Tank Service, Sunnyside, WA and later ACME Septic Service, Union Gap, WA. Stan worked until his failing health forced him to retire.
He loved hunting, fishing, camping, and sitting around a bonfire. In his humorous way Stan loved to give people a hard time. He also had a mischievous smile and his laughter was always sincere and full of joy!
