SHARON — Peter Hill, 63, of Sharon, died July 21, 2020, at home surrounded by his family after a 9-month battle with brain cancer.
Peter was born in New York City to parents Muriel and Daniel Hill. He grew up in Weston, Conn., and graduated from Philadelphia College of Art and Yale University of Art.
Peter was the loving husband and business partner of 34 years to Tara Cafiero. The two ran the clock company Pink Cloud Gallery out of their studio in Sharon.
Peter was a devoted father to their three children, who survive him: Melia Hill of Salisbury, Danielle Hill of Asheville, N.C., and Elias Hill of Sharon. He is also survived by his wife, Tara Cafiero of Sharon; and his brothers, Robert Hill of Portland, Ore., and Brad Hill of Washington, D.C.
Of all the creative projects Peter developed from his vast collection of building constructions, paintings, sculptures, furniture and stained glass, he most enjoyed slowly building out a camp in northern Maine on a tidal river. Over the years he enjoyed the quiet natural beauty the wilderness provided, enriching his imagination for the rest of his years to come.
Peter will forever be remembered for his quick wit and willingness to talk for hours on end about all manner of disciplines, from carpentry and building techniques to art and computer technology.
Due to the current COVID-19 protocols a memorial service/ art show will be planned when we can all gather safely in the coming year.
If anyone has a memorable Peter story they would like to share with the family they are invited to email it to email@example.com.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations be made to Eli’s college fund payable to: CHET (Connecticut Higher Education Trust), P.O. Box 219125, Kansas City, MO 64121-9125 memo: acct 4228048.
