James Almoth “Jimmy” Hill

James Almoth “Jimmy” Hill, 82, of Springdale, Arkansas died Tuesday, November 19, 2019. He was born February 21, 1937, in Helena, Arkansas, to Maurice Edward and Dorothy Alice Cooke Hill. He grew up on a hill on Stringtown Road picking the guitar and harassing relatives and the likes of Harold Jenkins, AKA Conway Twitty. He began working at an early age to help support the family. In 1959, he volunteered to join the United States Army and served until 1961. After returning home from the military and working, he also found time to pursue his love of dance and met his wife Judy Flahrity.  Judy and Jimmy went on to have a blessed family. Jimmy was a devoted, humble, and generous man who enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and drinking coffee. Jimmy was a hard worker during his years in property management and HVAC repair. He could fix or build just about anything.

Papaw will be missed dearly. Our papaw was one in a million. Thanks, Papaw. We love you and we will miss you.

He is survived by three children, Lynn Brown (Jennifer), Darryl Hill (Jeri), Michelle Murray; three sisters, Dorothy Williams, Theresa Baker, Shirley Wofford (Joe); nine grandchildren, Johnathon Butler (Taryn), Kelly Martin (Adam), Sarah Brown, Payton Holmes (Morgan), Laura Beth King (Blake), Cody Holmes, Kaitlin Hill, Taylor Brown, and Madeline Hill; and ten great-grandchildren. Jimmy was preceded in death by his wife, Judy Flahrity Hill, and one sister, Patricia Teaney.

A memorial service was Saturday, November 23, at New Beginnings Church.

The family wishes to thank VAMC Home Based Care, WRMC, and The Maples for caring for our father/ grandfather during his last days. The family also wishes special heartfelt thanks to a special friend, Angie Hervey, and the staff at Circle of Life Hospice.
