Founding member passes away

It is with great sadness that we share with you the loss of one of the founding members of Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County.

Charles ‘Chuck’ Hill passed away on Saturday, May 9.

Over 25 years ago Chuck Hill, with founding members De Bowman, Jack Kelly, Mac Mascioli, Bob Minsky, Bill Dannahower, Linda Dusanek, Rob Schweiber Havert Fenn, Larry Lee, Jr., Maureen Saltzer, David Smith, and Jennie Jackson, saw the need for youth in St. Lucie County to have the type of outlet that Boys & Girls Clubs of America are known for.

Children and their education was truly his passion. Besides being principal of Port St. Lucie Elementary School and the inaugural principal at Windmill Point Elementary School Mr. Hill also taught children in the Philippines.

Mr. Hill is survived by his wife of 60 years, Betty, and two sons, Steve and Jeff and their children.

Mr. Hill has left his mark as a positive influence of the Clubkids that attend any of the 20 clubs currently in St. Lucie County. One Clubhouse is named after him. The Chuck Hill Club is in Port St. Lucie on Marion Avenue.

Later his year Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County will host the 24th Annual Chuck Hill Golf Tournament.

Mr. Hill was originally a resident of Wisconsin and an avid Green Bay Packers Fan.

In lieu of flowers his wife Betty has asked for donations to be be made in his memory to Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County. Donations can be made at this link: DONATE.
