Michael Alexander Hill passed away on January 8, 2016. He was born December 14, 1994 in Lexington, SC, the son of Michael Hill and Holly (Hutchinson) Hill. Alex adored people of every age from the early years of his life. He was a very expressive, fun loving person who adored getting on stage every season for 8 years at Lake Murray Baptist
church to perform “A Man Called Jesus”. Alex graduated from Lexington High School in 2013.
In his high school years and after, he enjoyed discovering Bee Keeping, volunteering at SC state offices, cooking amazing dishes to share with friends, and stepping up to care for animals in need. In the last year, he moved to Houston, Texas and took up ice skating while working as a Master Waiter in fine dining; he enjoyed serving people. Alex met and developed many friendships in Texas, calling them his “Houston family.“ This world will be a dimmer place without the love and life of Alex Hill; we were blessed with him for such a brief time.
He is survived by his parents; his brother, Adam; his maternal grandmother, Betty Hutchinson; and his paternal grandmother, Pat Hayes all of South Carolina. He also leaves behind many friends and coworkers in Houston and his beloved four legged dog, Ginger. Alex was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Bill Hutchinson.
Kornegay Funeral Home, Camden Chapel, is in charge of the arrangements.
