Tommy Hillman

Sep 30, 2019

Troy — Tommy D. Hillman, 57, of Troy passed away unexpectedly Sept. 24, 2019. Tommy was born Dec. 24, 1961, in Bangor. He resided in Troy most of his life.

He was a hard worker and worked cutting wood and driving trucks from a young age. He enjoyed watching a good Western, four-wheeling, hunting and fishing. His favorite season was hunting season. He was always in search of the elusive swamp buck. He was the first to lend a hand, was always joking and made sure he had a cooler full of diet Pepsi and “googy cakes” where ever he went.

Tommy put on a brave face while struggling with depression and anxiety for most of his life. Despite his struggles, he lived a full life surrounded by his family and friends who loved him very much. He loved every moment he spent with his grandchildren taking them for rides on the four-wheeler, teaching them how to hunt, watching them play sports, playing with them and much more.

Tommy was predeceased by his father Clayton Hillman, his brother Jimmy Clement and by his beloved grandmother Kate Hillman.

Surviving are his wife Cindy Hubbard; and his daughters Bridget Hubbard and her significant other Kyle Harvey, and Ashley Hodgdon and her husband Nathaniel. He was "Bampy" to four grandchildren, Hannah, Ethan, Natalie and Kendall, who he loved with all his heart. Also surviving are his mother Serean Clement; his siblings Billy Hillman, Tammy Jo Stairs and Randy Hillman; as well as several nieces and nephews including Jacob Hillman, with whom he had a very special bond. He also had a very special four-legged friend, his co-pilot Princess.

A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Webster Cemetery in Troy.
