Nathaniel Wayne Hill, 41, of Mt. Carmel, Illinois, peacefully passed away surrounded by
family on December 09, 2019 at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.
He was born March 26, 1978, the son of Gene and Diane (Sargent) Hill in Belleville,
Illinois. He graduated from Mt. Carmel High School in the class of 1996.
Nathaniel attended school in Springfield, Missouri, to become a long-haul truck driver.
During the summer he loved taking his children with him on his trips. Nathaniel had a
passion for music, movies, and especially cars. He could tell you more than you could
even imagine (or maybe even care to hear) about the newest models of any given car.
His vast knowledge of cars and music led him to several jobs working with car stereo
equipment. Most of all Nathaniel loved travelling and his trips to the Smoky Mountains
with his children.
Left to cherish Nathaniel’s memory are his parents, Gene and Diane Hill of Mt. Carmel,
Illinois; children, Dalton Hill, Jocelyn Hill and Cooper Hill of Carmi, Illinois; siblings,
Nicholas Hill of Louisville, Kentucky and Margaret Hill of Chicago, Illinois; paternal
grandmother, Evelyn Hill of Mt. Carmel, Illinois; birth mother, Pam Karban; biological
sister, Kim Ingram; and many aunts and uncles.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Bette and Jess Sargent and
paternal grandfather, Farrell Hill.
