Hill A. Poss


Hill A. Poss, 91, of Chattahoochee, Florida passed away peacefully on Friday, February 22, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Morris, Georgia on November 11, 1927.   Hill was a veteran of the US Army and served his country honorably during World War II.   He was a faithful Christian and member of Grace Community Baptist Church, a loving father, a proud grandfather and great grandfather.  Hill was an inspiration to all who knew him and lived life serving others.  He was a kind and gentle person who loved spending time with his precious family especially his grandchildren.
