Brooklyn Park, Md – Kenneth David Hill, “Kenny,” age 55, died on March 30, 2020 at his home in Brooklyn Park, Maryland. Born in 1965 in New Orleans, LA, he grew up in Annapolis. He is preceded by his father, David F. Hill and his mother Grizelle M. Hill. He is survived by his sister, Davina Grace Hill of Salisbury, MD, two cousins in North Carolina, Linda Guthrie and Hardie Hill, Jr., and a loyal cadre of long time friends.
