Kelly Joe Hill

December 2, 1979 — August 9, 2020

KELLY JOE HILL, 40 of Sterling, CO, passed away Sunday, August 9, 2020, at his home.

Kelly was born December 2, 1979, at Julesburg, Colorado, to Larry L. and Christina L. (Vath) Hill. He graduated from Revere High School with the class of 1999.

Kelly worked at The Cage restaurant in Ovid for several years before going to work at D&L.

Kelly's favorite thing to do was go fishing, especially in the North Platte River. He enjoyed a variety of music and generally felt that it wasn't worth playing if it wasn't turned up loud.

Kelly was preceded in death by his father, Larry; grandparents, Robert (Leola) Hill and Leslie (Lois) Vath; and niece and nephew, Alicia and Matthew Hackbart.

Survivors include his mother, Christina of Julesburg; siblings, Eric Hill of Sterling, Tammy Hill of Ogallala, and Tina Zajec of Big Springs; nieces and nephews, Holly, Timothy, Jonathon, Dee, Kaylee, Wade, Leola, Gabriel, Michael, Carson, and Jaxson; uncles, Eric (Catherine) Vath of Lincoln, James (Dolly) Vath of Big Springs; aunt, Julia (Michael) Everitt of Big Springs; along with many other relatives and friends.
