" This weekend the Monterey Peninsula lost a wonderful man . . . 1st Sgt. Harold W. Hill, U.S. Army, retired. The love he had for his family and county will never be forgotten.

He spent time in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. When asked why he was going to Vietnam in his 40's his reply was "This is my job". Harry was raised on a farm in Minnesota and answered the call to duty following the attack on Pearl Harbor. He then remained in the Army for the next 28 years.

He married the love of his life, Doris, and they traveled around the world in the Army. They were blessed with a daughter Barbara. Upon retirement from Fort Ord they settled in Marina, CA.

One of his loves was his motor home, which he and Doris traveled in extensively from Coast to Coast, No one was ever surprised to come over to see Harry and stay for a John Wayne movie. He loved to entertain his nieces and nephews by doing his rendition of the "Penguin Walk". His next love was his cars. All were V8's and had to have a set of dualies. He was a lifetime member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Combat Infantrymen's Association, the 1st Cavalry Division Association, Disabled American Veterans, 24th Infantry Division Association, National WWII Memorial and the American Legion. What he really loved more than anything else was his family.

He was predeceased by Doris, his wife of 51 years and a brother, Willard Beacom.

He is survived by a daughter, Barbara Surette of Marina; a son-in-law, Terry Surette of Prunedale; a brother, Bob Beacom of Texas; a sister, Margaret Thomas of Tennessee; a brother, John Beacom of Texas; and three generations of nieces and nephews.
