Hilary was a devoted catholic, born in Fowler, Michigan and was a parishioner of Most Holy Trinity (Fowler), Holy Cross, St. Gerard (charter member) and St. Therese parishes in Lansing.

Hilary’s birthday was November 15, opening day for deer hunting season. Except for his two years of military duty, he celebrated every birthday, including his 91st, in the field early to find his buck or doe! He loved his faith, family, nature, and most of all his wife of 66 years. He will be sadly missed and he is now joined with all the angels.
