Jimmy Don "Jim" Hill

Bentonville, AR, 1937 - 2022

Jimmy Don "Jim" Hill, 85, of Bentonville, passed away on May 24, 2022, with family at his residence in Bentonville after fighting cancer to a months-long tie. A graveside service will be Tuesday, May 31, at 3 p.m., at Bentonville City Cemetery. Jim was born in Pea Ridge to William Hill and Irene Hill (Easley) on the 29, of January 1937. He went to school in Pea Ridge and Bentonville and married his high school sweetheart Ms. Betty Treonne Harris on June 27, 1954. Joining the US Navy in 1954, Jim went on to serve in active duty for 22 years and later worked as a civilian in support of the Navy for another 25 years. Becoming a "Navy famous" logistician, he received numerous prestigious awards and served, quite literally, all around the world. Jim and Treonne made countless friends wherever they were "stationed", as far west as New Zealand and the Philippines and as far east as Malta and Sicily, with too many locations in between to count. Jim loved fishing and tinkering, but his favorite pastimes were really anything that could bring family together. His only regret, "That we couldn't all have gone fishing one more time!"
Jim is preceded in death by his parents, William and Irene, as well as his three veteran brothers: Robert, Leon, and Charles. Jim is survived by, Betty Treonne Harris (wife), four sons, Jimmy Don Jr, Mark, Monty, and Paul, eight grandsons, three great-grandsons, and two great- granddaughters. The family wishes to extend our sincerest thanks to the caregivers of Circle of Life Hospice Care and Home Instead. Arrangements by Epting Funeral Home of Bentonville. Condolences:
