Vince Hill – Retired
Vincent Michael Hill a long-term partner at Mather and Company passed away suddenly during 2020. Vince, a native of Corbin, Kentucky served as president of his high school senior class, later moving to Louisville to begin his professional accounting career. He practiced public accounting for almost 40 years in Louisville prior to his passing. Vince was a proud graduate of Eastern Kentucky University and maintained enduring relationships with many fellow classmates who attended there with him. While at Mather and Company Vince serviced a broad spectrum of clients including auto dealerships, construction companies, Kentucky School Districts and not for profit entities. Vince was quick to volunteer his services to both his community and his firm.
Vince was thoroughly dedicated to, and appreciative of his many clients and professional relationships. He always had a willingness to guide the younger staff, demonstrating and sharing his knowledge, his ease of unburdened leadership, encompassing all with his keen sense of responsibility and integrity. He was of wry wit, passionate about his profession, devoted to his family and to his faith. He carefully provided constructive criticisms, but his opinions of others were tempered by his compassion for humankind. He served as a mentor to those around him and his legacy continues, teaching those who follow the binding standards that guided him through his professional career and through a life well-lived. Terribly missed by all, but all are thankful for the opportunity to have known him.
