Hill RobertHILL, Robert John “Jack”  - (April 11, 1949 – November 27, 2020)

On Thursday, November 27th, 2020, Robert John "Jack" Hill passed away unexpectedly at the age of 71 in Whitby, Ontario.

Jack was born on April 11th, 1949, the only child to Bruce and Ella (Lawrence) Hill and grew up in Choiceland, Saskatchewan. 

He travelled to Ontario in 1964 where he remained to work, raise his family, and play the guitar.

Survived by his children, Laura (Scott) and Alex, and his greatest friend, Cynthia (Darryl) with whom he spent the majority of his life.

Jack was unapologetically genuine.

He will be remembered for his kindness, his sense of humour, his love for his family, and his amazing musical talent. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

As per Jack's wishes, there will be no formal service. Arrangements are entrusted with OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME.

In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to Guitars For Kids (www.guitarsforkidstoronto.com - please select "in memory of" and send notification to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you feel so inclined.
