I’ve just received word that my colleague Rep. Calvin Hill has passed away this afternoon. Calvin was an honorable man, a true public servant, and will most certainly be missed. He was a successful businessman and served in the House for ten years representing parts of Cherokee county.
Speaker David Ralston issued this statement:
The entire House of Representatives is saddened by our loss of Representative Calvin Hill. Calvin Hill was one of the most principled public servants in our state. He fought hard for the ideals he believed in and never grew weary of doing what was right. We will miss his leadership and the great dignity he brought to our body. I know that every House member joins me in expressing our love and sympathy to Cheryl and all of the Hill family.
I echo the Speaker’s statement and extend my prayers to his friends and family.
