Paul Michael Hill, 62, of Pigeon Forge, TN, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, June 5, 2022.
Michael was born April 20, 1960, to Paul and Sherry Ann Hill in Selma, AL. As a military brat born to an Air Force father, Michael quickly learned to adapt and embrace new places. Michael spent his high school years in Fayetteville, NC, graduating from Reid Ross High School. Michael went on to receive his Associate's Degree in architectural drafting from Fayetteville Technical Community College and then went on to receive his Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina University. Michael ultimately ended up in Pigeon Forge, TN, doing what he loved: retail art.
Michael had a superb talent for art, whether it be airbrushing, ceramics, woodworking, murals, or sculpture. He also loved animals and never went without a cat or dog that he had rescued throughout his life. Michael was a kind free spirit that loved God and loved his beautiful creations.
A graveside service will be held on Friday, June 17, 2022, at 11 am at Mary Horner Walker Presbyterian Church Cemetery (6157 Little Dan River Road, Claudville, VA 24076) with Pastor Shaun Draughn presiding.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Sherry Ann Hill.
He is survived by his sister, Michele Fanning and her husband, Dyrck of Lumberton; one nephew, Drew Fanning of Charlotte; Aunts Louise Hansen, Frances Radford (Alvin), Joanne Hill, and Evonne Hill and Uncle Nelson Hill (Brenda), all of Virginia, along with a host of cousins.
We are so blessed to have had such a creative and imaginative son, brother, and uncle. We are very grateful for his love of God, family, friends, and animals.
Memorials may be made to Mary Horner Walker Presbyterian Church, 6157 Little Dan River Road, Claudville, VA 24076.
