Billie G. Hill (77) of Crockett, passed away Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Billie was born on October 23, 1940, in Malakoff, Texas to parents Jody and Pauline Hagen Hill. Billie grew up on a farm in Pennington, TX, where he, his brothers, and sisters learned to work hard which was a lesson throughout their adult life. In 1959 Billie graduated from Crockett High School.
Billie and wife Letty went in the restaurant business for 10-12 years. They also sold horse hay and small animals in Houston on their days off from TDCJ until his retirement in 2000.
