Jimmie W. Hill passed away on Saturday, August 1st 2020 with his sons at his side.
Jim was born December 18th, 1941, in Plainview, Nebraska, to Marjorie and Warren Hill. Jim grew up in Plainview where he was born. He graduated from Plainview High School and lived in Lincoln Nebraska for a short time. Jim then moved to Fairbanks in late 1968 after he finished his service in the US Army. He came with his cousin, Gaylen Kumm, to work doing flooring installation. His family would join him in spring of 1969. After working for Crafton’s Furniture, Jim started Hill’s Floorcovering in 1975 where he worked until he retired in early 2000s. Jim never really retired, because in 1981 Jim purchased the family business, Northern Power Sports, where he worked many years beyond his floorcovering days. Jim was often around to help in the shop and to run errands (especially when the coffee was hot and food was available). Jim enjoyed his time at his Clearwater cabin the most. He loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, boating, snow machine riding, wildlife watching, and motorcycling.
Jim is survived by his sons, Colby (Sandra) Hill, and Craig (Melanie) Hill; his grandchildren Garrett Hill, Jordan Hill, and Dekar Hill; his Clearwater family and many friends.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 26th at 330pm. The service will be at Northern Power Sports, 1980 Van Horn Road. It will be an outdoor rain or shine service; please dress for the weather, wear a face covering, and observe social distancing measures.
