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.

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.
