The death of Cecil Hill


August 18, 1994
Cecil Hill, one of the longest serving directors of Liverpool Football Club, has died, aged 84. His daughter, Mrs. Jo Gray, said he passed away peacefully at 6pm last night in the Hillside Nursing Home, Huyton.

Mr. Hill became a Reds director in 1955 and remained on the board until 1986, when he was made vice-president of the club.

He travelled all over Europe with the team.

He was a known character and comic, a former amateur footballer and boxer, who amazed the stars of the 1982 Reds side during a close season tour in Geneva with a high board dive and perfect back somersault into a hotel swimming pool.

He went to Anfield up to Christmas.
