David Eugene Hill, 71, passed away June 2, 2018. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, he was a U. S. Army and a Vietnam veteran, as well as a retired detective and K-9 officer for the Norfolk Police Department.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Frances Hill and his wife, JoAnn Hill. Left to cherish his memory: his children, Angela Dawn Harris and her husband Thomas, and Robert Brian Hill and his wife Mary; siblings, Richard Hill and his wife Margaret, Frank Hill, Steven Hill, and Sandra Hill; grandchildren, Shannon, Tammy, William, Cheyenne, and Gabrielle; and his extended family.

David's long list of accomplishments is topped with his children. His son followed his footsteps into the Army and Police department while his daughter married into the Air Force and enjoyed being a military spouse.

His time in the Army (1967-1970) was punctuated with two tours in Vietnam where he earned a Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, two Army Commendation Medals, the Vietnam Campaign Medal, the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, the National Defense Service Medal, and the Vietnam Service Medal. Of course, he also earned his Parachute Badge and three overseas bars.

As a Norfolk Police Department Investigator, he was the recipient of numerous awards and commendations, including the department's Lifesaving Award, for his excellence in conducting numerous successful robbery investigations. His legacy lives on in those who he mentored and trained.

David was a beloved father, son, brother, friend, and mentor who will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of his friendship.

The family will receive friends at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Tidewater Drive Chapel on Friday, June 8, 2018, from 6 to 8 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 9, 2018, at Miles Memorial United Methodist Church. Interment will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery.
