David James Hills, age 59, passed away on February 1, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer. A longtime resident of Georgia, David passed surrounded by family and friends.
David was born in Dearborn, Michigan on October 17, 1961. A devoted swimmer, David continues to hold the Wayne High record for 500yd free. He was recruited to swim for the Clemson University swim team.
David was the proud father of two sons, David Jr. and Joshua. He dedicated his life to the boys and could often be found volunteering at his sons’ numerous activities. Together they spent many weekends hiking and camping throughout the southeast.
