William Spencer Hill, 50, of Mechanicsville, MD tragically passed away on January 9, 2022.
He was born on October 18, 1971, in Leonardtown, MD to the late Kathryn Cecilia Knott-Hill and William Franklin Hill of Mechanicsville, MD.
William is a lifelong resident of St. Mary’s County and a graduate of Chopticon High School. He dedicated over 32 years of service to SMECO, as a lineman for many years and more recently as a construction supervisor. He was a grill master extraordinaire as the owner and operator of “Willie’s Smokin’ BBQ.” He built his own smoker and grill. He was famous for his delicious ribs, pulled beef and creamy mac and cheese. He was often found helping with catering events with Sunshine Catering. He also assisted in the kitchen at Hill’s Store a couple days a week with manning the grill. He recently purchased his new ride “Stella,” a beautiful red Harley. His other hobbies included watching wrestling, going to the beach, welding with his father, and spending time with his family. He recently took a vacation to Panama City with his sisters in which they all had a great time together. His girls were his pride and joy and he loved doing stuff with them. His favorite name to be called was Paw-Paw by his granddaughter, Natalee.
