Elvin Lee Hill was born in Beaumont, Texas on a Wednesday morning February 3,1954, the second of four boys, to Dale and Velma Hill. He passed peacefully from this life into a promised future in heaven on Monday, March 15, 2021 in Winnie, Texas. He was a graduate of French High School, class of ‘72, where he excelled in track as a long distance runner and received his bachelor’s degree from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas. He later owned and operated his own title abstract company, ELH Contracting, Inc., that served the area of southeast Texas.
Lee was preceded in death by his father who died in a hunting accident in 1957 when Lee was three years old, a daughter, Andrea Dawn, as well as his mother and stepfather, Dick and Velma Busby. He is survived by his wife, Teresa, of Hamshire, a son, Evan (Felicia) of Arizona, and a daughter, Ellis, of Kingwood, and six grand-children—James and Julia, Aubrie, Easton, Jaxon and Genevieve, as well as a great nephew, Brayden McComb, whom he dearly loved and a stepdaughter, Jennifer Nantz (fiancé, Jason) of Kingwood. Lee is also survived by an older brother, Dale (Karen) of Lago Vista, TX, and two younger brothers, Steve of Hardin, TX and Mike (Dawn) of Angleton, TX along with many other nieces, nephews and friends.
People will remember Lee as a highly energetic, fun-loving man who was involved in civic and social activities in and around the Beaumont-Liberty-Dayton area. He loved the outdoors and grew up hunting and fishing with his three brothers, a passion he shared later with his children. He loved spending time with his kids at all sorts of sports activities and often coached their teams in order to pour into their lives.
Lee was a member of First Baptist Church, Dayton.
