Memorial service for businessman, musician

A memorial service celebrating the life of the late Hilton “Buddy” Hill is scheduled to take place tomorrow in Southampton.

Mr Hill, a well-known and multitalented businessman and musician, died in March at the age of 74.

Mr Hill had a successful musical career with the Four Winds of Notre Dame after leaving university and before returning to Bermuda in the Sixties, working with artists including Frank Sinatra and Kenny Rogers.

Back in Bermuda, he alternated between advertising, community service and the arts.

In 2008, he was awarded a lifetime achievement award for his work and contributions to the performing arts, especially in the area of music, by the Bermuda Arts Council and his voice could be frequently heard in a variety of radio commercials. The service will take place at 2pm at Calvary Gospel Chapel on Middle Road in Southampton.
