Remembering Rocky Hill

Rocky Hill volunteering at Heart of the City a few years ago. Jim Gurnett

About 30 people gathered in the sunshine of Giovanni Caboto Park on a sunny July 27 afternoon to remember the life of their friend Rocky Hill. Hill died in March, doing what he loved – helping someone else. He had a heart attack after helping push a vehicle that was stuck in the snow. Because of health restrictions during the COVID-19 period, this was the earliest a public service was possible. Memories shared focused on his care for others, often cooking and serving food or helping in other ways. His love of art was also celebrated and each person who attended was invited to take a small painting or piece of jewellery he had created. The service was led by Inner City Pastoral Ministry’s Pastor Quinn Strikwerda.
