Dear Fellow Archers and Howard Hill followers, please help and donate! Mr. Steve Turay of Northern Mist Longbow started a crowd funding to restore Howard Hill’s grave wich is in bad shape as you can see on the attached photos. It’s a shame, so many folks admire Howard Hill, but his grave falls apart. Many, many thanks to Steve Turay and his effort!
The graves of Howard Hill and his wife Elizabeth Hodges Hill are located at the New Ashville Cemetery, Ashville, St. Clair County, Alabama, USA.
The Alabama gravesite of the greatest archer the world has ever seen, and a long time Flynn friend, sailing partner, archery mentor and co-star, needs desperate help. It is eroding badly. Master bowyer Steve Turay, has taken it on himself to repair it. He is asking for donations. His post is below. He’s already begun work and it’s going along great. If you can help please contact him:
After moving to Alabama, I have had the opportunity to visit Howard Hills grave several times. Sadly, I found the site in very poor condition. After my second visit I thought something had to be done to repair the retaining wall that has fallen and allowing extensive erosion to occur. I contacted the caretaker of the cemetery who informed me that they receive money keep the grass cut and that was all. He further stated that any grave site maintenance and or upkeep is the responsibility of the family. I decided to take on the task of starting a project to have the necessary repairs and replacement of the wall and grave site. As a result I started the Howard Hill Grave Site Restoration Project. I have hired a stone mason to begin work on the site.
If you would like to contribute to the restoration please contact me at 906-458-5035 or at firstname.lastname@example.org… and I’ll give you the details on how you may help.
On behalf of the Hill family, Thank you!
