The Odessa Record -

Meet your neighbors

John and Faye Hill, sons Raymond and Rawlins


Winter has finally passed. Spring has sprung with daffodils in bloom and tulips not far behind, with many other lovely treasures pushing their way up through the soil. And now it’s time to meet some new neighbors.

John and Faye Hill and their two adorable sons, Raymond and Rawlins, arrived in Odessa in November 2016. Before leaving the Seattle area, they did some research on the school districts in this area and found Odessa to be the best. Based on the information they found, they made the move and are happy about their decision.

Raymond, 4, is enrolled in preschool and brother Rawlins, 3, is at home with his mother, enjoying playing in the back yard and waiting for his brother’s return each day.

John was born in Tacoma and at the age of nine moved with his family to a dairy farm in Wisconsin. At the age of 18, he moved back to the west coast. He is a woodworker and a “jack of all trades.” He is a collector of anything Coleman (camping/outdoor equipment made by that company) and an avid fisherman and bow hunter. In the art department, he loves to sculpt and paint.

Faye was born in west Seattle and lived there all her life until her move to Odessa. She worked as a bank teller then as an operations advisor for the bank. She graduated from the Brennele School of Massage in 2006. After the birth of her children, she became a full-time, stay-at-home mother and homemaker, and she says she loves every minute of it. She also is an artist and loves to paint.

Raymond loves his preschool and boats and motorcycles. Rawlins told me he loves trains, so he is in the right town for sure. The whole family are lovers of the great outdoors, and every chance they get, that is where you’ll find them. They are also enthusiastic Seahawks fans.

We welcome them to Odessa and are happy they are here. If you get a chance to meet this family, you are sure to feel like you have met some new friends.

Until next time, ENJOY LIFE!
