Kevin Micheal Cheney-Hill, 32, passed away on Monday, March 6th, 2017. He was born on February 26th, 1985 in Salt Lake City, UT to Tim Hill and Vickie Mortensen.
Growing up, it was easy to see that Kevin was destined to have a life on stage. He loved to entertain everyone he met. He was a great story teller and had a phenomenal singing voice. Kevin was a friend to all. He never met a person that didn’t fall in love with him immediately. He was a very tender person who couldn’t stand to see anyone, human or otherwise, in pain. He was definitely a special soul.
Being the youngest of 3 children, he was the pride of his mom and dad. He always had a mischievous smile and a sparkle in his eye and could talk himself out of pretty much anything.
Kevin attended Gunnison High School where he participated in several musicals. He started a band, Parsec, with a friend and later changed their name to Betty Hates Everything. He co-wrote many of their songs and completed a cross country tour as well as performing in a variety of venues throughout Utah and Idaho.
Kevin is survived by his husband Caleb Cheney of Salt Lake City, UT; his son Zeke Hill of Denver, CO; his parents Vickie Mortensen of Kearns, UT and Tim (Joan) Hill of Axtell, UT; his older sister Brooke (Brett) Robbins of Kaysville, UT; his older brother Allen (Michelle) Hill of Richfield, UT; 6 step-brothers, Robert, Ronald, Russell, Ryan, Raymond, and Randy Newman; his grandparents Parley and Carol Roundy of Marysvale, UT and Clair and Colleen Thompson of West Valley, UT; several aunts and uncles and nieces and nephews that will miss him terribly.
A funeral service will be held at the LDS Stake Center 4731 So. 4300 W, Kearns, UT 84118 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, March 11th, 2017.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial donations be given to his parents to be held in a trust for his young son.
We love you Boodah, until we meet again.
