Kiwanis Club of Tarboro honors Hill’s memories


TARBORO — Members of the Kiwanis Club of Tarboro honored the late Charles Edward Hill with a Resolution of Appreciation at their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night at Vidant Edgecombe Hospital.

Hill, who was an untiring community volunteer, died Feb. 21.

Club member Wayne Boyette said the resolution was an acknowledgement of the service Hill had given the Kiwanis, his country, the community and his church, St. James United Methodist Church.

Hill, a native of Lenoir County and a 1971 graduate of the University of Georgia, was a long time employee of Carolina Telephone/Sprint.

The resolution acknowledged Hill’s dedication to his country through his 32 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard, serving in Desert Storm in 1991.

He was also active in the community, working with the Edgecombe County Veterans Military Museum, as a volunteer with hospice and as Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina Kiwanis. Hill served the Kiwanis Club of Tarboro as president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and director and helped establish the Golden K Club in Tarboro and Kiwanis Club of Nashville, N.C.

He was also a faithful member of St. James United Methodist Church, where he was involved in many capacities through the years.  At the time of his death, he was a member of the men’s choir and serving with the Lay Shepherding Ministry and was active with the Acts group.

The resolution concluded, “Now, therefore, BE IT RESOLVED by the officers and members of the Kiwanis Club of Tarboro, NC that we hereby express our gratitude for the life of Charles Edward Hill, his contributions to a better country and community, and his unselfish service, this 19th day of March, 2013.”
