February 9th, 2013 is one of those days most of us will never forget.  For one family in Old Saybrook, their lives changed forever that day.

February 9th was the day Connecticut was pounded by that record snowfall.  Nearly 3 feet in spots. 

Like a lot of us that day, 50 year old Bob Hill of Old Saybrook grabbed his shovel, and went out to do battle with mother nature.  That day, she won.

Bob had a heart attack while shoveling.  An ambulance made it’s way through the storm, to try to get him to the emergency room.   People were out driving on the rutted, unplowed roads.  The ambulance had a brush with one accident.  Then, another out of control driver forced the ambulance off the road.  It was stuck.  Old Saybrook police picked up Bob in an SUV, and finally got him to the hospital.  It was too late.

Bob left behind his wife Elizabeth, and two kids Riley and Sarah.  College is coming.

On Sunday, May 26th Bob’s friends are throwing a party to help pay for school.  It’s called “A Celebration of Life and Lacrosse.”  Bob loved lacrosse, and loved his family.  There will be games, a BBQ, a DJ, and some good memories. 

If you have a little time to spare between 1-4 pm, stop on by.
