It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of John Hili in the early hours of Monday 23rd May 2022.

He was a beautiful, gentle, and patient man whose greatest delight was being surrounded by family.

His soul was as soft as marsh mellow but his body, well that was as tough as old boots. Surviving a heart attack, a triple by-pass, a heart valve replacement, and more recently with failing kidneys, he beat all the odds and returned home after a 2-week stint at the Royal Melbourne Hospital with Covid.

Our family would like to thank Doctors and Nurses at the Royal Melbourne, Footscray and Epping Hospitals for their care and attention over the years. Without them, John would never have been healthy enough to remain living at home with his wife Toni. It is because of their care that John reach such a grand age. John would have been 93 in August.

He will be loving remembered by his wife of 70 years, Toni, his daughter Carmen (George), son Charlie (Rose), 4 grandchildren Michael (Liz), Ilona (Colin), David (Sasha) and Chris (Lee) and 9 great grandchildren Sarah, Laura, Grace, George, Harry, Jet, BJ, Chris and Jaydan.

A small family service will be held on Friday, 3 June 2022
