Mr. John Joseph Hill, the Liverpool F.C. director, passed away last night. Mr. Hill, who was forty-five years of age, had been in failing health for some considerable time, and for the last few days had been confined to his bed. He was connected with the Liverpool Football Club practically from its inception, and put in many hour of work for the good of the club.
He became director just over two year ago, and was a very popular member with the board, players and supporters, and will be badly missed. He leaves a widow and a large family at Harewood Hotel, Everton.
I am sure all will join us in expressing our deepest sympathy with Mrs. Hill and family. The funeral will take place at Yew Tree Cemetery, on Thursday, at four o’clock. Mr. Hill was a member of the Licensed Victuallers’ Association for many years, and was chairman last year.
