Hugh Kevin Sill passed away September 21, 2020 after a long battle with cancer. Hugh was born on August 22, 1950 to Hugh and Betty Sill. Hugh was one of 8 children. Built in best friends!
He attended USC where he received a bachelor’s degree in business. He married Carrie Ann (Caratan) Sill on July 26, 1980 in Carmel, California. Together they raised four children and one honorary son, Karil Escober.
Hugh’s careers consisted of owning a travel agency, real estate development, but in the end he found his true passion as an elementary school teacher.
Hugh had a love for animals, especially dogs. He enjoyed traveling and was always ready to throw a party for any milestone. His grandkids stole his heart one by one. Some of his hobbies included trying to find the secret to keep his grass green in the hot Bakersfield summer months. He finally succeeded this past summer! He always had some sort of home project going on at home. He was a dedicated family man. He loved his wife dearly for forty years and was very proud of his children and their hard work to become successful in their own careers.
