Carl Hill

October 20, 1956 — June 8, 2024


Carl D. Hill, 67, of Newport, Rhode Island, died at home on June 8, 2024. He was the husband of Melanie (Crowell) Hill.

Born in Carmi, IL on October 20, 1956, He was the son of Lawrence and Doris (Mayberry) Hill. Carl grew up in a small town in southern Illinois and enjoyed baseball, fishing, hunting, cars, trucks and motorcycles. He owned his own trucking company called Hillman Trucking but later moved on to a new career as a bridge painter. He enjoyed many years working for union contractors.

Carl found himself working on the Newport Bridge with Abhe Svoboda Co. and he fell in love with Newport, and it wasn't long until he also fell in love with Melanie. He continued similar bridge work with Atsalis Brothers, and was a mentor for many of the younger union employees, helping them navigate work, life, and their responsibilities.

Carl is survived by his wife of 10 years, Melanie (Crowell) Hill and her children, Carter, Riley, and Kailey Hebrock, a sister Sharon Pilkington and a niece Carrie Garlick, both of Colorado, a sister-in-law Deborah Hill of Clarksville, IN, nephew Jason Hill of Tampa, FL, and a niece Julie Bush and her husband Steve of Charlestown, IN. He also leaves his cousins Mark Wheeler of Springerton, IL and Carol Hill of Norris City, IL, and brothers-in-law Jessie and Tom Hise. He truly loved his pets and will be sorely missed by his canine family Oliver and Kylo.

He was preceded in death by a brother Charles Hill.
