American Heart Association Memorial Page for John Hill – John Evans Hill, born 2-21-1945, died from congenital heart failure on January 12, 2015 at Christus St. Vincent Hospital in Santa Fe, New Mexico. John struggled for many years with genetic heart problems. In the fall of 1997, he had a heart attack which resulted in a quadruple bypass surgery and multiple pacemaker defibrillators.
