Quinton Hill first saw the light of day on December 21, 1974. His mother Devona Hill shaped his character as a young boy in Dallas and Irving schools. Quinton’s gentle spirit allowed him to make friends easily in high school and made lifelong friends at East Texas State University. There he would meet Maudticia Herron, who would later become his closest friend of all and his wife in 1998.
He graduated from ETSU in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science and Criminal Justice. Quinton worked as a probation officer in Dallas and Tarrant Counties where his gentle demeanor would serve his clients well. He continued his education earning a Master’s degree in Human Resources from Amberton University in 2000 and would pivot to a career with JP Morgan Chase as a Mortgage Loss Prevention Specialist for 10 years.
Quinton and Maudticia enjoyed 22 years of a loving marriage. It was Quinton’s gentle strength that carried her after the loss of their two daughters Zuri Faith Lynn Hill and Aria Simone Hill. Likewise, it was his gentle joy that overflowed in the home as they raised their third child Zauria Elyse Hill. He was a doting father, supportive husband and loyal friend. His joy was complete with the reunification of his father Jerry Johnson.
Quinton committed his life to Christ and accepted the responsibility of Deaconship under the leadership of Pastor Demetrius D. McClendon Sr. on December 8, 2019. His love for helping others lead to a joint effort to feeding those in need with the One Life food Pantry.
After a brief illness, Quinton was gently lifted into the Master’s care on October 6, 2020. Waiting for him were his mother and daughters.
