Golf tournament raises money to support Alzheimer’s – LaGrange Daily News

“He never met a stranger,” she said. Connie recalled that Hill was a “party” sort of man that was kind and good natured to everyone he met. “He had a handshake, a smile and a pat on the back for everyone he ever met. He had the kind of personality where he would treat a janitor at a plant the same way he would treat a CEO of a company.”

Toward the end of the tournament, bagpiper Michael Scott from Newnan played “Amazing Grace” and “Going Home” before a moment of silence. Around the club’s golf course hung banners and posters commemorating Hill’s life and sports reputation as over 100 people created a celebration out of Hill’s memory.

His children and friends gave touching acclamations about Hill throughout the day. Hill’s wife, children and extended friends and family gathered at the Highland Country Club Thursday, four months after he passed away, for a fundraising golf tournament event.

“I was floored with how many people know of somebody with Alzheimer’s,” she said. One of Hill’s friends, Jimbo Foster, visited on and off during his illness for lunch or a game of golf. Even though some days would have complications, Foster stuck by his long-time friend. Before the pandemic, Hill was showered with visits by friends who also comforted Connie.

He was diagnosed with early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s roughly five years ago and spent the last years of his life in an assisted living memory care in Florida where he and his wife moved. Hill was born in Covington on Dec. 16, 1951, and was a graduate of Newton County High School and LaGrange College. He was a four-year letterman in basketball at LaGrange College from 1970-1974 and later inducted into the LaGrange College Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.
