AHOSKIE, NC – Mr. Charles Hayden Hill, a loving son, brother, and friend, passed away on January 20, 2024, at ECU Health Medical Center in Greenville, North Carolina. Born on January 23, 1955, in Ahoskie, North Carolina, Charles was 68 years old at the time of his death.

Throughout his life, Charles enjoyed his time helping at Savin & Hill Co. Charles had a passion for sports, particularly supporting his beloved UNC Tarheels. He found solace in fishing and took delight in capturing the beauty of birds through his photography.

Charles was preceded in death by his father, Frederick Martin Hill Jr. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his mother, Maxine Croom Hill, as well as his stepmother, Carolyn Hill of Ahoskie. Charles leaves behind a cherished legacy, forever etched in the hearts of his three brothers: Martin Hill (Sharon Jernigan) of Colerain, Steven “Tee” Hill (Edna) of Ahoskie, and Ashley Hill (Kathy) of Ahoskie. He was also dearly loved by his paternal grandparents, Frederick and Gladys Martin Hill Sr., and maternal grandparents, Hayden and Myrtle Croom; and his numerous nieces, great nieces, and great nephews, who will always carry his memory close.

A celebration of Charles’s life will take place during a graveside service on Saturday, January 27, 2024, at 2:00 pm, held at the Highland Memorial Gardens in Ahoskie, NC. The family will receive friends at the home of Tee and Edna at any time.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests memorial contributions be made to the Ahoskie Food Pantry, PO Box 159, Ahoskie, NC 27910. Donations can also be made online by clicking here

To The Entire Hill Family:

So sorry to hear of your loss. I met Charles on December 21, 2023, when he came to complete his Move-In process for Academy Hill Apartments. He seemed so nice and friendly. He and I agreed that we would be friends, so I will continue to consider him my friend.

We all know and understand that he is now in a better place.

Prayerfully Submitted,

I am sorry. My previous condolence was supposed to say “the late 1970’s.”

I dated Charles back in the late 1070’s. We used to love to go on double dates with my cousin and her boyfriend. We lost touch over the years. However, I saw him in Walmart this past summer. He seemed really happy. We talked a bit and caught up on what was going on. I had no idea that he was sick. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. It was a shock. I am sending prayers for the family.
