With deep sadness, we announce the sudden passing of, Jason “Byrd” Hillard, age 32, on August 30, 2020.
Jason was a 2006 graduate of Lee Davis High School and was enlisted as a soldier of the VA Army National Guard Reserves 2009 – 2014. A free spirit who loved hunting, fishing and riding with his NWMC family, he never met a stranger and was a true and loyal friend. His mischievous, crooked grin and sweet disposition captured us all.
Jason will be missed by those he left behind. His father, Dwight Hillard, brothers, Eric Hillard and Brandon McCann, sister Marie Hillard, his mirror image and beloved young son, Jason Allen Hillard, Jr. (Bubbie), his “Auntie” Janet Hillard Abele, cousins Kaylah Abele Pemberton, Adam Abele and Savanna Abele, niece Martha Lou (LuLu) and nephew Jeb. The family is eternally grateful to Tammy Marlowe and April Smith for their help and dedication. We take comfort knowing Jason is in Heaven, with his MeMe, Martha Jones Hillard.
A Celebration of Life will be held on a date to be determined. “Ride On Byrd”.
