Tulsa Hill April 25, 2024

We are deeply saddened to announce that Tulsa Edgar Allen Hill passed away on February 9, 2024, at 32 years old.  Tulsa is preceded in death by his grandfather, Ed Hill, his stepsister Alexsis Ash, and his stepbrother Clate Ash, Jr.  He is survived by his two sons, Tulsa Barton and Gunner Hill, his father Tulsa Hill, his mother Tina Ash, his stepfather Clate Ash, Sr., his stepmother Tammy Spitzer, his older sister Jackie Newsome, and his three stepbrothers Pike Ash, and James and Jesse Spitzer. He will be greatly missed by his grandma Sherry Hill, his Grandpa Jack Newsome, his niece Lyric Newsome, and his many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Tulsa was born in Monroe, Washington on May 8, 1991 to his parents Tulsa Hill and Tina Ash (Newsome) and was raised in the little town of Sultan, Washington. He liked to hunt, fish, go camping, roam the woods, work on anything with a motor, and most of all, ride his dirt bike. If he wasn’t sleeping, he was zipping around the track on his dirt bike or flying by you on the road riding a wheelie the whole way. He definitely had a need for speed. Growing up, he raced his dirt bike at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds for flat track and arena cross, where he won many trophies and ribbons. He also liked to participate in many sports, including baseball, football, and wrestling before he suffered a lifelong injury to his knee around the age of 11. Even though his leg wouldn’t bend throughout his adulthood, that didn’t prevent him from doing most of the things he loved doing. As an adult, Tulsa spent his time operating heavy equipment such as dump trucks, bulldozers, and excavators to help his family. He helped his dad do many jobs including clearing, road building, demolition, and he did most of the mechanical work on any heavy equipment when it broke down.

His sudden death was devastating to the people who loved him, and he will be missed dearly. A Celebration of Life will be held in his memory soon.

    Your loss is shared by all of those who knew Tulsa. He helped me many times volunteering his time at St Vincent de Paul when I was in need of handy man work. He never hesitated if I asked for help. He was a pleasure to have around the Resource Center. My condolences to his family. I am truly sorry for your loss. Please reach out if I can help in anyway.
