Devon William Hill was born April 12, 1983, to Roberta “Sug” Binschus and Dennis Hill. His soul left us like white lightening, to rest in peace on August 4, 2021. Devon was a raging ball of energy from day one, always busy, always tinkering, always exploring. He had a curiosity for taking things apart to see how they worked, and then putting them back together again. This would later earn Devon his livelihood as an automotive technician, starting his career at Prime Tune and Brakes, in Bellingham, where he worked for 10 years.
Devon and his older sister, Heather, always had a special bond. They liked to party together as teenagers, and their mantra of love for each other was “Nothing Else Matters,” by Metallica. Their matching 3 bar tattoo symbolized their solid past, broken present, and solid future.
Devon as a great lover of music of all types, especially country music. He loved the mountains and enjoyed spending time in Glacier in the great outdoors. Most of all, he loved his kids and wife.
Devon began his lifelong battle with alcohol at the tender age of 13. He grew up fast after his parents divorced. At 28 years old, he met Johanna in August 2011, but he was always struggling to keep his demons away. They later married on May 15, 2016, and had Skye (8) and Saylor (3). He was a faithful husband and doting father, and a good step father to Silas (14) and Sahria (12). The hole he has left in our hearts is endlessly deep. Forever young, forever missed, and forever remembered.
