Gregory Scott Hill
Gregory Scott Hill was born March 22, 1953 and passed away on March 25, 2015. He is survived by his lifelong 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 northwest 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. His superior audio ability led him to work with many legendary local bands including The Rangehoods, Lazy Susan, Give, as well as many others. He provided sound reinforcement for private events and many music festivals around the Puget Sound area.
During his life Greg influenced many local bands and budding sound technicians. He was a man of his word and happily guided and taught those who had an interest in sound technology, music and life. He was kind, had a huge heart and touched many lives. He will be missed by those who knew him well.
Rest in peace my partner, my brother, our friend. We will forever love and miss you dearly.
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)
