Michael Ray Hill, 21, died suddenly on September 15, 2018.  Visitation for Michael will be 6 p.m. Wednesday, September 19, at Kerbow Funeral Home. Services will be 10 a.m. Thursday, September 20, at the First Baptist Church of Ozona. 
He was born to Ray and Sheri Hill on June 8, 1997.  Michael graduated from Ozona High School in 2015.  Because of his love of auto and diesel mechanics, he attended Lincoln Tech in Grand Prairie, Texas, graduating on February 4, 2017.  He returned to Ozona after graduation to join his dad in working the family ranch.
Anyone who knew Michael knew he always had a smile and a laugh that could light up a room.  That smile or laugh usually had some kind of mischief behind it.
Michael loved his family, and one of the joys of his life included playing golf with his mom at the weekly Wednesday scramble at the Ozona golf course, where he would often be seen playing in his flip flops or bare feet.  In high school, Michael’s golfing nickname was “Styx.” Another of his loves was the joy of working on the ranch with his dad.  Michael was an awesome Uncle to his niece and nephew, and went by the name Uncle Pickle. He affectionately referred to his brothers as Big Bo and Little Bo.
His hobbies were vast, many of which included cooking at the Deer Fest, hunting, working on vehicles, or going to rodeos with his girlfriend, Addie.  Michael had a tremendous love for all animals, including his dogs and horses.  
Michael is survived by his parents, Ray and Sheri Hill of Ozona, two brothers Jonathan Hill (Tatum) of Sweetwater and Steven (Bo Amber) of Sonora, and special “brother” Tim Brooks of San Angelo. He was a loving uncle to niece Ashlynn Hill and nephew Wyatt Hill of Hamlin.  He will be greatly missed by his grandmother, Arlene Clayton of Ozona and grandfather, Frank Hill (Pam) of Kermit. Michael is also survived by a very special girlfriend, Adalyne Nehus. 
Survivors also include uncles and aunts Ricky and Darolynn Webster of Ozona, Wilson and Sabra Hill of Monahans, Jeanette and Wade Smith of Monahans.  Surviving cousins include Seth Webster of Ozona, Jordan Webster of Goldthwaite, Shelbye Hill of Odessa, Katie Eubanks (Chris) and daughter, Kelty of Midland, Daphne Wells (Andrew) and children Kolton and Kinzley, Michael Roberts and daughter Isabella, Bryan Smith (Briana) and children Kairi, Scarlett, and Roxas.
Michael is preceded in death by his beloved grandparents Dick and Mary Webster and Mike Clayton.
