Robert Layne Hillman passed away in his home on Saturday, December 30, 2017. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Karen Dare Johnson Hillman, his son David Layne Hillman (Wendy Lee), his son John Thomas Hillman (Kristina Montuori), and his grandchildren, David "Layne" Hillman, Jr. and Eleanor "Hadley" Hillman.
