Rodney Wiley Hill, 1942-2022

Franklin, NC - Rodney Wiley Hill passed from this life on June 5, 2022. Born in Lake Wales, Florida, on December 12, 1942, he was the only child of Reason Wiley and Clora Robbins Hill.

Rodney and Judy, his wife of almost 59 years, met in high school and quickly became sweethearts. Rodney grew up on a farm, loved raising cattle, and was a proud member of Future Farmers of America. Even though he and Judy were truly opposites, he could depend on his sweet Judy to save a seat for him on the school bus every day.

Rodney was a tax professionals for 25 years and co-owned Eagle Tax Breaks with his wife before they retired. Rodney enjoyed riding mud trails on his Polaris 4-wheeler. He loved to hunt and didn't like to fish but went anyway because Judy did. He was a lefty and fit that narrative in many ways.

Rodney had a great sense of humor and was really quite funny with his dry wit. Even though he possessed both knowledge and wisdom, he didn't speak up often, but when he did, people listened. Rodney was a man of faith who loved Jesus.

Left with many wonderful memories is his wife, Judith Branch Hill; his son, Justin Edward Hill (Brenda) of Lake Wales, Florida; his grandchildren, Preston Hill and Clayton Hill and three great-grandchildren; his niece, Shirl Marshall and his nephews, David Corbin, Mark Corbin (Cindy), Scott Corbin, Bobby Tucker (Rose), Kris Mills (Sherry) and his brother-in-law, Max Corbin. He was predeceased by his parents.

No public services are planned.

Moffitt Family Funeral Care is honored to serve Rodney's family.
