Ed Hill


Ed Hill passed away at his home in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, after a long battle for over 30 years with diabetes, on May 17, 2021. Ed was born Wallace Edward Hill to Milton and Katheryn Hill in Los Angeles, Calif.

Ed was a man's man. He was Independent, tough, and a fierce patriot. Through his life he exemplified service. Ed joined the U.S Navy out of high school. On his return he served the public as a San Diego Police Officer, Alaska State Trooper, and assistant Chief with the Acro Alaska Fire Department at Prudhoe Bay.

Ed was a wonderful, full-of-life man who took up a huge part of our hearts. We will miss his hugs everyday!

Ed is survived by his wife Nancy Hill; daughters Lynda Bryant, Shirley Morris and her husband Greg; grandsons, Sean and Greg; and granddaughters, Cyndi and Leah.

Ed's ashes will be scattered on Mount Drum in Alaska per his request at a date to be determined.

Ed was a pillar of the ARCO volunteer fire department at Prudhoe Bay with friends throughout the organization. He was key in the training of the volunteers and helped make the fire department a leader in industrial capabilities. His patience and constant quest for quality attracted many, who, like him, were there to help protect their fellow workers. I miss Ed and his cool, calm in the face of emergencies.  Condolences to Nancy & the rest of his family

So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. Ed was such a great teacher. As Asst Fire Chief, he spent many hours in the evening instructing me on how to drive a Pump Truck. To me he was always patient, cheerful and kind. A great leader and example for all of us new recruits in the volunteer Fire Service. He was a good man.

I remember listening to Ed’s tales of his time as a policeman in San Diego,going to the shooting range and his appreciation of boxer dogs. He was a good man, my condolences . Robin Robbins
