Jessie W. Hill, age 80 of Pearl, IL passed away Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at his home with his family by his side. He was born January 12, 1940 in Alton, IL to Earl and Ruth Fulks Hill. Jessie married Shirley J. Romo on October 28, 1961 and she survives.

He served his country in the Army Reserve for 2 years from 1957 to 1959. Jessie later went to work at Laclede Steel and retired in 1993 after 31 years with the company. He loved to hunt, fish, work on autos, restore old tractors and most of all loved to joke and pull pranks on people. His sons had many friends who also considered Jessie as their father and loved him very much. Jessie was a wonderful husband and father who will be greatly missed by all.

Jessie is survived by his loving wife, Shirley; two sons, James Hill of Alton, IL and Thomas Hill of Pearl, IL; brother, Paul (Cecil) Hill; sisters, Vickie (Ernie) Williams and Donna Hill; and several nieces and nephews.
