Mark Hill Obituary

Mark E. Hill, 54 of Blairsville, PA, passed away February 7, 2024 at Shadyside Hospital after a 3 year battle with cancer.

He was born July 4, 1969 in Latrobe, PA, the son of the late Floyd Hill and Carol (Harper) Hill.

Mark was a talented heavy equipment mechanic and truly loved his 30-year career with R&L Development Co.   He had many dear friends at R&L and spent years building engines in the New Alex shop with his buddy, Geno.  The last 5 years were spent in rotation at the local power plants repairing equipment as a member of Operating Engineers Local 66.  

Mark enjoyed hunting deer with his sons, fishing with grandson "Noodles" and spending time outdoors.  He was always up for a party or a Pens game and loved to cook, grill and feed his friends.  His biggest joy was his family.  He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.  His grandson Mark has many memories of "adventures" with his Pap.  He loved to make people laugh, especially his dear nieces Ashleigh & Catie and entertained them with inappropriate stories and jokes.

He is survived by his wife, Judy (Holmes) Hill, Blairsville, PA; son, Mark Hill, Jr. & wife, Amber, Derry, PA; grandchild, Mark E. Hill, III & his mother, Nancy Hudson, Blairsville, PA; grandchild, Braden Brendlinger, Derry, PA; brother, Scott Hill & wife, Christine, Little Rock, AK; nieces, Ashleigh & Catie Hill; brother-in-law, Bill Holmes, Jr. & wife, Vanessa, Montoursville, PA; niece, Jillian McQuail & husband, Ken, Salt Lake, UT; niece, Lexie Lecher & husband, Evan, Hershey, PA and father-in-law, Bill Holmes, Sr.
