Dr. Gordon Travis Hill, Jr.
January 20, 1947 - November 28, 2020
Dr. Gordon Travis Hill, Jr., 73, of San Antonio, was taken to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 28, 2020. Born on January 20, 1947 in Bryan, Texas, he was the son of the late Gordon Travis Hill, Sr. and Thelma Tuttle Hill. Affectionately known as GT, Gordon
graduated from Texas A&M University in 1969 with a degree in zoology. He obtained a medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1975, and later started his medical practice, North San Antonio Healthcare Associates, in
1978. He was still practicing medicine at his passing. He genuinely loved caring for his patients and was adored by generations of families that he cared for over his 42-year career.
A talented musician, Gordon frequently played guitar with friends. His love of music was a life-long passion that went all the way back to his youth. He frequently spoke fondly of his time in the Texas A&M Singing Cadets and in local bands playing his favorite
folk music with his childhood friends. Gordon also had a passion for aviation and logged flights weekly while working towards his pilot’s license.
Gordon’s love of God and family was the cornerstone of his life. He was a passionate believer and enjoyed church fellowship, worship, and studying the Word of God. With his boundless hunger for knowledge, Gordon never stopped reading. He could frequently be
found with a thought-provoking Christian book as he examined the world as intended by our Creator. An encourager of faith to those around him, he was a Christ-like example of love to others. He was a devoted husband for 47 years to his beautiful wife, Darlene,
and a doting father to his two daughters, Courtney and Kelli. When he wasn’t practicing medicine, GT could be found hauling around twirling and dance bags or escaping to the ski slopes of New Mexico with his family. He loved the outdoors and all of God’s creation,
walking regularly with Darlene throughout her battle with Alzheimer’s.
Gordon was adored by his granddaughters. “G-Dad” played the guitar, sang, wrestled, tickled, laughed, walked, and swam with them, usually to the point where their level of energy far outweighed his own. His love for his granddaughters was evident with everything
he did. He has been a shining example to both his sons-in-law of what a father’s love should look like.
Dr. Hill was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Annette Darlene Hill, who passed away in July of 2019. He is survived by his loving daughters, Courtney Chamberlain and husband Eric Chamberlain of Roanoke, TX, and Kelli Spence and husband Robert Spence of
Oak Harbor, WA; granddaughters Zianna Chamberlain, Shelby Spence, and Charlotte Spence; and his sister, Carol Ann Poston and her husband George Poston of Dallas.
