It is with much sadness that I extend heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Chase Hill. I always knew Chase as a lively, well mannered and caring person. I see that infectious smile was God given! Although he was taken too soon I feel like he never missed a moment to enjoy and be grateful for what was in front of him. He lived his life with purpose. I know these memories have given me joy and my hope is that they do the same for you. Sending prayers of healing and grace to the family. Rest in Power Chase and continue smiling down on us!

Mr. Hill and Family,

My sincerest condolences go out to you and your precious family. My heart goes out to you all and I do know that Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. I pray that your dear child/brother/son continues to rest in the arms of our Lord Saviour. True SpelHouse and EAHS love to you my brother.

I am grateful that I got a chance to meet you (once as a rambunctious child, and once as a graduating senior transitioning into independence). Even in our brief chat I could tell you were a bright, optimistic, generous young man--a true light. I'm heartbroken that you were taken away so suddenly, so tragically. And I can't imagine the grief and disorientation your parents are experiencing--to lose a child as he is just branching out into adulthood. You are a cherished brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. I pray that over time we can find solace in your beautiful memory. Rest in peace, dear Chase.

Your cousin Karima from San Diego.

What a joy and honor it was to know Chase. I still remember that youthful 7th grade boy who always had a smile on his face. He could light up a room like few young men could at his age, and he always brought a spirit of joy and fun wherever he went. I saw him grow and mature from that small adolescent frame trying to learn how to play soccer in middle school to a grown man in his late high school years being one of the first ones at school as he opened the gym early in the morning to work on his game. What great determination he had to maximize his God given gifts and use them for a greater purpose. My life was better for knowing him, and I praise God that our lives intersected for many years.

Hills, know that I love you and care about your deeply and that I am praying daily for the Lord to sustain you and keep you.

Chase, It was a pleasure getting to see you grow up and mature, from your freshman year to your senior year. Those years may have seemed forever for you, but it was a mere blink of an eye for me. I truly wish to have seen you flourish as an adult, and I grieve for what this world is missing out. You will be missed, you will be thought about, and you will never be forgotten. Rest with the Lord now, I'm sure you and Him are have a good time together.

It was definitely a pleasure having you bless our lives. When we first met you, we knew you were one of a kind. The value my boys placed on your friendship was immeasurable. You touched each of them in a different way. Even the younger two thought you were just their special friend. You always exhibited Maturity, Patience and Godliness. During your journey you had a purpose to touch and change lives...And that you did! You will forever be missed.

Charles and Rai,
You did an awesome job! Thank you for sharing him. May the lord bless and comfort you and the family. We love you and you will forever be in our hearts.

Dear Chase,

Even though we’ve always had a long distance relationship, I feel very close to you. Your parents and grandparents have done an exceptional job sharing your achievements, photos, and milestones.

You’ve accomplished more in your short twenty years than many have done in a much longer lifetime. You were an exceptional son, grandson, brother, and nephew. Your family consistently expressed how proud they are of you. You’ve always been an excellent student. This is evidence student videos, the school flag which displayed your picture, the scholarship you received for college, etc. In addition, you’ve always had an interest in missionary work.

You’ve left so many positive memories that will always make our souls smile. Those are the memories that will live on in our hearts forever Chase. Yes, we will miss you more than you can imagine. But we can rest assured that you are in God’s hands now and He will take good care of you.

Aunt Candas

My precious Baby Boy. Scholar-Athlete. High School Graduate. National Guardsman. When Will Smith’s video came out for “Just the Two of Us,” I would pretend you were Jaden and I was Will. My happy baby. Always smiling. Always dreaming. Always thinking of others.

Life wasn’t supposed to be this way. You are supposed to be exchanging stories with your grandpa. We are supposed to be talking about Supply Chain and Logistics. We should be texting and FaceTiming and me sending pictures of you when you were a baby, reminding you of how I would claim you as my own.

I’m thankful I loved on you while you were here. I’m thankful for how you expressed your love to me. I’m thankful that when you were in Basic, I wrote you almost every day, even when I didn’t have anything of substance to say. I’m thankful for all of our pictures and our laughs.

I can’t say I understand, nor can I say I’m happy that God called you home so soon. The tears haven’t stopped flowing and I know they won’t for quite some time. My Baby Boy. Auntie’s Baby. My Chasemeister. My Man, 100 Grand. I’ve loved you since before I knew how to love myself. I love you now and always will.

Aunt Britt loves you more than you will ever know. Rest Peacefully Baby Boy.

I'm so sorry for you loss. Praying that God will provide your family with peace in knowing you will see him again.
Posted by Charles Hill on June 4, 2021
I've tried to figure out what to put in this letter to you, but my mind goes blank. I think of how proud I am of you, and the example you set by leading at all times of your life. You always gave your all to everything- whether it was taking time to play with your little sisters or working on a mission trip thousands of miles away in another country- the room was brightened by your smile and infectious laugh.
Having family dinner every night with you when you were home from school and reminiscing about the crazy things you've done- from stealing the care and having to call us when it broke down to riding your first motorcycle at age 8 as if it were a bicycle! These thoughts are rolling through my mind on constant rotation, bringing me smiles through the tears. 
Although you are not here with us, I know for a fact that you are in heaven- you were already an "angel on the ground" and positively affecting everyone you came in contact with. Never did I see you down- if you lost a game you came to practice even harder, if you saw a friend in need you selflessly would help in any way possible.
Son, my love for you is endless, timeless, and unconditional. It has been my honor to watch you grow from a tiny baby into a grown self sufficient man. Your bright soul has always shone through and I know it is shining even more as you watch over us. I love you Son, and I'll see you in heaven as soon as my work here is done.
