Edward R. Hill, 91, of Rochester Mills, passed away Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015, at his residence.

A son of the late Edward and Annie Marie Stile Hill, he was born Nov. 28, 1923 in Indiana.

Mr. Hill was a 1943 graduate of Indiana High School. He proudly served his country in the Army Air Corp. Mr. Hill retired from Local #354 Plumbers and Pipefitters Union, Latrobe.
