The Journey Begins
To send flowers in memory of Deacon Climmie L Hill Sr., please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecc. 3:1
Climmie Lee Hill, Sr was born on May 29,1954 in Ft. Pierce, FL, the second child of Seven children to the union of Edward and Ollie Ruth Hill. Climmie received his primary education in the school system of St. Lucie County and went on to receive his secondary at Vero Beach High School.
As a high school student, “Clim” as he was affectionately known by friends, was exceptional as well as superior in athletics, playing on the school’s football team, helping the team gain multiple victories. After attending Vero Beach High School, Clim went on to work along side his father in the family business.
Climmie excelled within the industry so much so that the entrepreneurial mindset he seized from his father lead him to start his own business. Hence, Grace Stucco and Plastering was established. His skill and incredible craftsmanship were highly sought after across the entire state of Florida. Learning first hand from his father, Edward “Junior” Hill he combined years of technique and experimental variations that inspired signature results as well as made the privileged establishments to which he provided his services synonymous with his name. Clim’s work and expertise was summonsed to help construct hundreds of buildings and homes in and outside of the community and state.
If you were ever privileged to ride along the various highways and communities with him, he would proudly inform you of the work that he performed on each individual structure that his hands were a part of.
Clim was an avid sports fanatic who loved the Miami Hurricanes. He could often be seen, or heard talking about the teams’ record, players or just his love for the team wherever he went.
The Journey Continues
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the lord. Proverbs. 18:22
In 1977 Clim married the love of his life, Bonnie Robinson-Hill. This union was blessed with 5 children. The love that he had for his family could not be described by mere words. Everything that was ever done or ever sacrificed was because of the undeniable love he had for the well-being of those who called him husband, daddy, Grandpa, Papa, son, brother or uncle. There was NOTHING that he would not do to provide or protect those close to his heart and they knew it. Being a man of prayer, He could be heard every morning calling the names of his family members praying for their soul, safety, success and protection. Generations before and after were shown, felt, experienced and knew of the love he felt for each one of them.
Climmie joined the Church of God by Faith under leadership of the late, Elder John Robinson, Jr. He served faithfully as an usher and was then promoted to the office of Deacon. Climmie held that position for over 35 years. He was also appointed as a finance board member for the local and district committee.
