John Aloysius Hill, 84, of Lexington Park, MD passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at Chesapeake Shore Nursing Home in Lexington Park, MD. Lovingly known to friends and family as "Bubba", he was born on November 30, 1932 to the late Andrew and Dorothy Hill of Hermanville, MD. John received his education in the St. Mary's County public school system. He met and married the love of his life, Margaret James.
John enlisted in the Army during the Korean War. After serving in the Korean War, John continued to serve as a public servant and worked 20 years for the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC until he retired. During his free time, John enjoyed bowling, playing cards and shooting pool. He was a faithful Washington Redskins and Baltimore Orioles fan. John was also a member of the American Legion in Pomonkey, MD. He loved eating Kentucky fried chicken, which he thought tasted so much better with a cold Pepsi. John also enjoyed talking on the phone with friends and family.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret and sisters; Agnes Suber and Catherine Hill and great-grand daughter, Mackenzie Thomas. John leaves behind to cherish his memories beloved daughter, Linza Harvey (Lieutenant); sister, Sadie Champagne (Raymond), who was always in his heart, brother, George Hill (Dorothy), whom he loved dearly, step-sisters; Faye Hughes, Alice Sawyer and Sadie Taylor and step-brother, Isaac Taylor and favorite nephew Raymond (Marian).

Thomas and James Thomas, Mia Swales and Megan Swales; special and devoted long-time friend, Marian Butler and a host of many nieces, nephews and friends who were always held dear to him.
