Obituary for Solomon "Jim" James Hill II
Solomon James “Jim” Hill II, age 56, passed away Sunday August 23, 2015 from an aggressive form of colon cancer. He was in the comfort of his own home while surrounded by his family and friends. He is now at peace and no longer in pain.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Solomon and Louis Hill. Survivors include his sister, Sarina (Dan) Harter; brother, David; son’s, Solomon and Vincent; nephews, Ryan, Justin, and Derek; niece, Christa; longtime friend, Judy, “Spirit” brother, Robin (Peggy) Monnin; as well as numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, and countless friends.

Jim was born on March 5, 1959 at Coulee Dam, WA. Upon graduating from University High School in 1978, he volunteered as a fire fighter and worked as a part-time EMT before being employed as a commercial painter for most of his life.

He was proud to be an enrolled member of the Colville Confederated Tribes and Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate. He was an avid advocate for his tribes and various Native American causes.

Jim lived his life the way he wanted. His hobbies included listening to the Grateful Dead, The Who, and The Beatles, riding his motorcycle, and fishing at Buffalo Lake on the Colville Reservation. He was known as a “free spirit” and a hippie with a kind soul, who loved the environment and animals, especially cats. He left behind his “Kitty Kitty” who was holding his hand as the time neared. He had a loving heart and would do anything for anyone in need. He would give anyone the shirt off his back and give you his last dollar, even though he didn’t have much for himself. As a gift to Jim, he would love that you would do an unexpected act of kindness for someone or an unsuspecting soul.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at 3 o’clock, Thursday September 3rd at the Pines Mausoleum Chapel at 12116 E. 16th, Spokane Valley. Immediately following will be the burial, at South Pines Cemetery located at 32nd and Highway 27.
