Obituary

On August 30th, W.W. "Dub" Hill received his Heavenly wings, basketball, and fishing pole. The native Floridian, former Indiana statesman, and avid Hoosier basketball fan lived an amazing 92 years. He earned two master degrees, one in Economics and one in Business Administration from Florida universities, and doctorates in Jurisprudence and Business Administration from Indiana University in 1952. During the mid 1960's and early 1970's, he wanted to prove government could be efficient, so he served in both the house and the senate of the Indiana State legislature and acted as its attorney. As chief of staff, he was an essential part of Governor Ed Whitcomb's conservative policies. After serving as Head of the Indiana Public Utilities Commission, Dub presided over United Telephone Intermountain and then Liberty Fund in Indianapolis, spending ten years promoting liberty worldwide. He believed in education, supporting three kids and five grandchildren through college. In his later years, Dub started a small publishing company, played the stock market, loved to recycle toys for kids, and supported numerous charitable causes. He is survived by his wonderful wife of 68 years, Ellen, their three children and five grandchildren.
Dub's celebration service will be held at The Funeral Chapel of Powell and Deckard, 3000 East 3rd Street, Bloomington, Indiana on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 1:00 PM.
Burial will follow at Covenanter Cemetery in Bloomington.

Ellen:

I was deeply saddened to learn of Dub's passing. Please accept my most sincere sympathies. He was a mentor for those of us new to public service so many years ago and a great example of what a true servant could accomplish for our community and its citizens. We were lucky to have him there.

Dear Ellen, A voice from the past. I was so surprised to read about Dub in this mornings Star. Memories of long ago flooded in - College Life and couples bridge. The two of you have obviously had a busy and fulfilling life in the intervening years. I have a previous commitment on Saturday or I would be in Bloomington. Much love, Gay Burkhart
