Wayne Lee Hill passed away on November 23, 2021, at the age of 70. He was born on December 27, 1950, and raised in Greene County, IN, to Lavon and Anna Mae Hill who preceded him in death.

Wayne served in the Indiana Army National Guard (INARNG) for 38 years retiring as a Colonel. He cherished his time in the military and was a respected leader. After retiring as Chief of Staff of the INARNG, he had the opportunity to start The Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy in Knightstown, IN in 2007. He felt this position was the most meaningful work he did. He retired from the Academy in 2014.

Wayne married Patricia Hill on May 9, 1997, and she preceded him in death on December 26, 2015. He and Pat enjoyed golfing, going to their condo in Florida and pampering their dogs. He also spent several hours per year wrapping the family’s Christmas presents that Pat lovingly bought.

Wayne is survived by his daughters Lisa (Brian) Caito of Carmel, IN, Mendy (Brian) Werne of Indianapolis, IN, Erin (Frank) McDaniel of Manilla, IN, and Kelly (John) Cherry of Rushville, IN. He will also be missed by his grandchildren Kyle (Kate) McDaniel, Katelynn (Dom) Flynn, Andrew & Alex Caito, Jake & Luke Werne and great-granddaughters Mallory & Annie McDaniel.
