“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Anthony “Tony” Hill made his debut into this world on March 28, 1963, to parentage of Ms. Anna Roach Hill and the late Mr. Irvin Hill in Bronx, New York, and later moved to Sparta, Georgia with his mother and siblings.
“Hillbilly” as he was affectionately known by most of his family and friends was known as the jokester of all jokers. He was blessed with the natural talent of making everyone laugh. Tony loved enjoying life, but more than that his most precious moments was spending time with his family and friends, making sure everyone got a good laugh, before he departed the scene.
A legend in his own way and time, he has left us so many wonderful and precious memories, and always made an impact on every life he touched. Regardless of where he journeyed in life, it was fated for him to return home to “The Gutt”.
Tony joined the Macedonia Baptist Church at an early age, under the leadership of Rev. Abraham Mosley. He received his formal education in the Public Schools of Hancock County, and was a member of the 1981 graduating class of Hancock Central High School, Sparta, Georgia.
On Sunday, July 22, 2018, Tony clinched life, making his finale from this life. A life that will forever be cherished and remembered by his devoted Mother, Ms. Anna Roach Hill; his brother, John (Jannet) Roach; his seven sisters, Sonia Roach of Marietta, Georgia, Sharon (Johnny)Roach-Burns of New London, Connecticut, Annette Hill, Jeanette Hill, and Adrian Williamson of Sparta, Georgia, Cynthia Hill of Decatur, Georgia, and Joycelyn (Kevin) Thompson of Lake Charles, Louisiana. His three aunts, Willie Mae Battle and Julia Thomas of Sparta, Georgia and Liberty Thomas of Atlanta, Georgia, and his two uncles, Bennie Frank Roach of Monticello, Georgia and James Zimbabwe of Atlanta, Georgia, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and the East End Community Family.
