Grandpa was a wonderful man who enjoyed helping people and building things. He was a Master Carpenter and built such things as a second story on their house, a 5th-wheel trailer, as well as a work-shop/garage. He worked at Allis-Chalmers most of his life and spent many years building custom cabinets as a second job.
Shelby is the son of Sarah Eleanor "Ella" (Murrah) Hill and Roy O. Hill, and Leon Carpenter, stepfather. He had 7 brothers and sisters; Glenn Eldon Hill, Gordon Murrah Hill, Mildred Irene Hill, Ruby Leona Hill, Helen Alfrieda Carpenter, Alan Leon Carpenter, and Donald Dean Carpenter.
Grandpa was a Sergeant in the Army Air Corps. He married Grandma (Frances) September 1, 1944. They met while she was in nurses training. He was the brother of her room-mate and once Grandma saw his picture, she knew he was for her. They started writing each other and on his furloughs they would meet. Back then, you couldn't be married and be a nurse so she quit nursing school and they started a family. They have 7 children. Shirley, Jim, Phyllis and husband Joe, Sharon and husband Steve, Joyce, Roy, and Judy and husband John. At the time of writing this, he has 10 grandchildren (1 deceased, Michael Lopez) and their spouses, and 11 great grandchildren.
