Gregory Scott Hill was born March 22, 1953 and passed away on March 25, 2015. He is survived by his life long partner, Christina Drake, his brother in blood and faith, Vernon Todd Foster and his sister, Heather Taylor, as well as many friends and colleagues within the Seattle music community.

He will always be known for his work with Tomie O’Neil at Seismic Audio as a sound technician, as well as working in many iconic Seattle venues including RKCNDY, The Vogue, the Crocodile Cafe, and The Central, among others. His superior audio ability led him to work with many legendary local bands including The Rangehoods, Lazy Susan, Give, as well as many others and he has provided sound reinforcement for private events and many music festivals around the Puget Sound area.

During his life, Greg influenced so many local bands and budding sound technicians. He happily guided and taught those who wanted to learn about sound, music and life. He was a man of his word, always willing to help anyone who needed it. He was the kindest person, with a huge heart. Greg has touched so many lives, and will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest in peace, my partner, my brother, our friend. We will forever love you, and miss you dearly! – The Family and Friends of Gregory Scott Hill

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. Eccl 3:1-4

Greg’s family and friends will get together to remember this wonderful man at Slims Last Chance Saloon for a farewell event on Sunday April 12. More details on the event are available HERE
