Deacon Leonard Carlyle "Carl" Hill was born to Leonard Fate Hill and Rosa Elizabeth Crenshaw Hill on December 23, 1955, in Austin, Texas. Deacon Hill departed this life on Monday, November 6, 2023.
He was preceded in death by his parents Leonard and Rosa Hill, sisters Betty Lott and Effie Franklin, brothers Troy Hill and Adlia Hill, and niece Dorian Hill.
Carl accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Corinth Missionary Baptist Church. He was educated in the Austin Independent School District where he graduated from McCallum High School in 1974. He had the privilege of being in the last freshman class of 1971 at LC Anderson High School. Carl played football for three years at McCallum High school. After completing high school, his talent earned him a scholarship to the University of Texas at El Paso.
Carl was inspired by his father to take on the mantle of caring for others. He took especially good care of his brothers. He loved his family. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart. Carl was a dedicated servant at Corinth Baptist Church. He was an obedient servant of the Lord. He served as a CMBC finance chair, served as a member of Family Opportunity to Fellowship (FOTF), served as past president of the CMBC Brotherhood and Deacon Board, participated in the Male chorus, organized the CMBC Ministers' Marathon, and he also worked as a teacher in the Children's church.
Carl's willingness to serve extended beyond Corinth. He assisted on the St. John Colony Juneteenth Committee, through his love for cooking he served on the Citywide Brotherhood lending cooking skills in the kitchen. Carl was an employee for the University of Texas in Austin as a Building Services Supervisor for 29 years. While working at UT, he received several awards and accolades. He retired from UT in 2010.
During his retirement, he kept busy and worked as a crossing guard. He was a community minded person and enjoyed visiting with his neighbors. His neighbors returned his community spirit by checking on him regularly. Carl leaves the following family members to cherish his memory: sisters Joycelyn Catron and Kendell Wallace (Ernesto Sr.), brother Homer Hill and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. We will rejoice because as a son of God, Carl is promised eternal life.
