Christopher Mark Hill, 72, of Desoto, TX, passed away peacefully at home on March 23, 2022. Chris was born in Little Rock, AR, to Cecil and Isabel “Tibby” Hill. He was a graduate of Catholic High School and attended Christian Brothers College in Memphis, TN. He was employed for the last 32 years with USA Roofing and Construction in Lancaster.  

In his leisure, Chris enjoyed golf and fishing, as well as pranking and joking with his many friends. His favorite time was spent with his wife, Sharon, son, Nick, and his four-legged kids, dogs, Summer and Spencer, and cat, Cali.

Anyone who met Chris, would remember him as kind and optimistic. He had a unique sense of humor. Chris knew everything (wink wink)and if you asked him about anything, he’d tell you, “I wrote the book.” He could make you laugh, not just from his words, but often by the look he gave you. Chris could take a bad day, or just a boring regular day, and turn it into a good day. It’s just the way he was. On one of his last days, we opened his curtains to lighten his room and told him it was rather cloudy outside. In true Chris fashion, he replied, “I see a lot of blue out there.” Lesson taught from a warrior holding on.

Chris is preceded in death by his parents, Cecil and Tibby Hill, and sister, Missy Hill Carmack.  

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife, Sharon, and youngest son, Nick Hill of Desoto; and oldest son, Chris Nolen (Shana) and grandchildren Grant, Jack, and Brock of Little Rock, AR.  

He is survived by brothers and sisters, Cecil Hill II, Danny (Lynne) Hill, Gary (Linda) Hill, Dianne Hill (Glenn) Blackwood, and Betty Hill (Tim) Martin, and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

Chris and I shared so much during our days a CHS. But like so many of us who were formed and fashioned by the teachers and coaches in high school, he and I took different paths after graduation. Those journeys of now 55 years took us places we never imagined and separated us by time and distance. Nonetheless, the struggles, trials and triumphs of our days at CHS are indelible. Having gone back and read Chris's comments in my Yearbooks from '64-'67, the flame of our friendship and shared experiences glowed in my spirit once again. In his last comment to me in my '67 Yearbook, Chris wrote: "Keep Laughing." That speaks volumes to me of the wonderful spirit Chris always projected as a classmate, teammate and high school friend. My sincerest condolences go out to Chris's family and friends in TX. In Jesus Christ we have a hope that when the struggles, pain, and loss are ended, the joy and  "laughing" continues in God's Presence forever.  The grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior be with you all. george m.

Chris and I had a friendship that extended past  our graduation. We hunted, fished and played golf together. And had a lot of fun in several other activities. He was always optimistic and cheerful. Chris' charisma was his greatest attribute. His wife was his care giver for the last year of his life. I will miss his chuckle and laugh. Walt

Chris was an exceptional individual from an exceptional family; universally liked and admired. Somewhere along the line (probably at Holy Souls) he acquired the singular nickname "Bass" most likely deriving from either his swimming or his fishing activities. He was truly one of a kind. R.I.P.
