William (Bill) Hill, Sr.

William J. Hill Sr. North Side William J. "Bill" Hill Sr. passed away peacefully Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012. He was born March 3, 1936, on Pittsburgh's North Side, where he spent the majority of his life. Bill was an accomplished man that devoted his life to helping others. For nearly 15 years, Bill served as a chairman of the Fraternal Association of Steel Haulers (FASH), which was one of the largest independent trucking organizations in the country. Bill spent the majority of his time as chairman fighting for the rights of Independent Steel Haulers from across the country. In 1976, Bill was selected as a chairman of the National Independent Truckers Unity Committee (NITUC) by then Governor Milton Schapp, which was an organization devoted to quality of life improvements for truckers throughout the United States. Bill's greatest achievement as NITCU chairman was getting the 80,000 Pound Weight Bill passed by Congress and signed by the president. The bill established the 80,000 pound maximum haul weights for truckers. The bill still stands to this day and has helped in saving countless lives of truckers and those that share the road with the big rigs. Bill also had the honor of speaking at the Harvard Business School, where he received a standing ovation in response. Bill was a humble man, so when the steel industry collapsed in the early 1980s Bill found himself out of a job, but not for long as he took on the role as a union painter where he spent the remainder of his working life. After retiring, Bill continued his commitment to serving others and served as a chairman of Seniors Working to Organize Retirement Dignity, (SORD), which was an organization established by him to improve the quality of life for retired painters and to give them a voice. Bill served in the Coast Guard and was an active leader within the American Legion Post No. 0081 of the North Side and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Bill's final campaign was waged to return a World War II memorial to its rightful place which was on the corner of Cedar Avenue and East Ohio Street. The memorial honored North Side men that were wounded or paid the ultimate sacrifice during World War II defending the freedoms of our country. Bill was also a member of the Elks Club and Knights of Columbus, Bellevue. Bill was a devoted Catholic and usher of St. John Neumann Church. The beloved husband of 53 years, Bill is survived by his wife, Shirley Hill; and seven children, Kim Schmidt, William Hill Jr. (Cindy), Michelle Lowe, (Mark) Robert Hill (Chona), Darryl Hill, (Patty) Sherri Hill, (Darin) and Douglas Hill. Bill was a cherished grandfather of 15 and he recently became a great-grandfather. Bill is also survived by his sisters, Marlyn Myrla, Nancy Hill and Carol Short.

Robert E. Meier (submitted by his son Bob Meier) 
I am writing to let you know of the passing of my father, Robert E Meier, age 91, of Newport Beach, CA. He passed away on April 14, 2007. Although Dad moved to California several decades ago, he remained a faithful member of the Bellevue Council. He simply could not give up his long time allegiance to the Bellevue Council. I am not sure how many years Dad belonged to the K of C, but I am now 66 years old and always
remember his being a member.

Dad was remarkably active in virtually all phases of Council affairs. My distant memory reminds me that he participated in bowling, softball (ending up as manager of the team after actively playing up to his mid-50s), golf, bingo, and was editor of the Mariner for many years. I believe that he was an officer at some point, and am sure that there are many other activities at the K of C in which he was a key figure.

Dad was born in Ekron, Kentucky, but lived most of his life in Pittsburgh, Pa where he attended Allegheny High School and served as class president for four years. He married Betty in 1939 and served in the US Navy during WWII. He and Betty lived in Avalon and had 2 children, Bob born in 1940 and Marilyn in 1943. For most of his adult life he worked for the Postal Service and after retiring, he and Betty moved to CA in 1980 to be closer to Marilyn and the grandkids, Clay and Michelle. In 2005, Bob and Betty moved to Newport Beach, Ca. Betty passed away on Feb. 1, 2006 and Dad on
April 14, 2007. They Are survived by son Bob Meier of Alexandria VA and daughter Marilyn Frenz of Costa Mesa CA. They had four grandchildren: Christine Meier, Steven Meier, Michelle Frenz, and Clayton Frenz and one great grandaughter, Lauren Meier, daughter of Steven and Sharon.

I am not sure how many of Dad's contemporaries at the Bellevue K of C are still with us, but I am sure that those who are would like to know of his passage into eternal life.

With best regards,

Bob Meier
