Boyd "Sammy" Samuel Hill, Jr.

October 10, 1944 ~ April 13, 2022 (age 77)


Bennettsville, SC

Boyd Samuel “Sammy” Hill, Jr. passed away Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at First Health Moore Regional Hospice House. He was 77 years old.

Born in Bennettsville, Sammy was the son of the late Boyd Samuel, Sr. and Shula Eleanor Greene Hill. He was a 1964 graduate of Clio High School and a proud Marine Corps veteran. Sammy was a gifted mechanic. He was a man of many talents and a master builder. In the 1980’s he built Giant Scale Remote Control airplanes for adults and competitively flew them for many years. Photography was more than a hobby for him. He loved South Carolina’s natural scenery and wildlife and captured many beautiful pictures over the years. His passion was trains, and he enjoyed building large scale model trains. He volunteered at the Hamlet Depot Museum for over 10 years and served on the Depot Board. That was his happy place.

Sammy was preceded in death by his parents listed above and sister, Ann Eleanor Hill Stromberg.

He is survived by his daughter, Jennifer Ann Hill Marcy (Ron) of Ormond Beach, FL; granddaughter, Elizabeth Alexandria “Alexa” Beck (Zack) of Charlotte, NC; great grandchild, Lucas Christopher Beck of Charlotte, NC; niece, Debbie Carpenter (David) of Conway, SC; nephews, Michael Stromberg of Clio, SC, Keith Stromberg (Casey) of Florence, SC, Scott Stromberg (Susan) of Bennettsville, SC; and other beloved family members and friends.

A private family service will be held at a later date.
