RICH SQUARE – The life of Joe Frank Hill, Jr began February 15, 1948. God called our beloved Joe Jr. home on Friday, June 24, 2022 in Rich Square Nursing & Rehabilitation Facility in Rich Square, North Carolina.
Joe Frank Hill, Jr. joined Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Como, North Carolina at an early age.
Joe Jr.’s life was filled with the love he shared with his family and friends. His love for gospel music and sharing God’s word through song gave him great joy. He was a member of the Mighty Bells of Joy for years even after unforeseen obstacles came his way. He was fighter and never complained about his illness and he definitely never gave up. Joe had a second love, which was shooting pool. He was known as the man who ran the pool hall in Murfreesboro, (The Magic Cue). We will miss his smiling face, his energetic, caring, giving and loving personality.
Joe Jr. was preceded in death by his father Joe Frank Hill, Sr. and mother Beulah Myrick Hill.
Joe Hill, Jr. leaves to cherish his memory one daughter, Teanine Pratt of New Haven, Connecticut; three grandchildren; one sister, Blanch Gibbons (Walter) of Como, North Carolina; two nieces, Lori Gibbons and Cheryl Bowers (Prince) of Como, North Carolina; a great-nephew, Deontaye Gibbons; many other great-nieces and great-nephews; a special friend and care giver Julie Magnarella; and a host of family and friends.
