Charlie Ray Hill, 71, of Kingsland, died April 3, 2013. He was born to Charlie Henry and Lemma Maye [Fails] Hill on October 9, 1941 in San Antonio.
Mr. Hill was a "Native Son of San Antone. He fulfilled a lifelong dream when he and his wife Rose made the Kingsland-Lake LBJ area their home for 23 years. Charlie’s vocation was his vacation. He served as food service director at Camp Buckner and Buckner Boys Ranch. There he served tens of thousands of youths in a Christian environment. The friendships he enjoyed and treasured there made those years the most rewarding ones of his life.
Charlie was a Christian and member of the Hill Country Fellowship Church in Burnet. His church family and especially Pastor Rodney and wife Rosemary were so very special in Charlie’s life. Charlie lived by "The Cowboy Code”: Live each day with courage, Take pride in your work, Always finish what you start, Do what has to be done, Be tough but fair, Talk less and say more, Some things are not for sale, Know where to draw the line and You ride for the Brand, You ride for the Man loyalty. Charlie was a true hombre!
