Leland (Lee) Charles Hill, 85, of Scotia was called home on October 4, 2023.
He was born on August 31, 1938 to the late Harold and Leona Hill. Lee was a lifelong resident of Scotia, and was educated and graduated from Scotia-Glenville Central Schools. He retired from Sears at Rotterdam Square where he worked in the Maintenance department.
He married his beloved wife, Brenda, in 1969. Leland and Brenda were devout Christians and dedicated themselves to the church they attended together. Lee was known for his love of family and woodworking, often gifting his labors of love to friends and family. His passion was flying planes with his brothers at the Schoharie Valley Cropdusters RC Club.
Leland is survived by his wife, Brenda Wilburn Hill, and his children, Karen Hurst, Jeffrey (Jennifer) Nicholls, and Taz Nicholls, his brother, James (Barb), sister-in-law, Becky Hill, and sister, Cheryl Delella. He was a devoted grandfather to Lynda (Kevin) Martin, Christine (Nabil) May, Jo-Anne (Denis) Coombes, Michelle (Kyle) Chejka and to his eight great grandchildren. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
Leland was predeceased by his son Christopher Hill, son-in-law Floyd Hurst, brothers Marvin, Albert, and Harold Jr. (Bunker) Hill, brother-in-law James Delella, and sister-in-law Lillian Hill.
At the request of the family, a private memorial will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Beukendaal Fire Department in Leland's memory.
