From GoFundMe:

“My brilliant and beautiful brother, Glenn Hill, died unexpectedly on Sunday, leaving behind his 18-month-old son Ezra and his wife Rachel, who is currently pregnant with their second child.

Our family is in shock and grappling to deal with this unfathomable loss, as are all who knew him. Our main focus right now is to surround Rachel, the love of his life, with support and care as she navigates raising Ezra and their new baby (another boy, due this summer) without Glenn. He was her rock, a steadfast and loving partner and an infinitely patient and capable father who delighted in his rascally, sweet-natured firstborn son and was eagerly anticipating meeting his second.

I know our grief is shared by the wider community, because to know Glenn at all was to love the guy. He was a beloved fixture of the DC nightlife scene for more than 25 years, a bright light in many a dimly-lit bar (Black Cat, Aroma, The Passenger, and Showtime, to name a few).

He was loud and gregarious, hardworking, thoughtful, generous with his time, and always happy to see a friendly face. He was the smartest and funniest person in any room, a lifelong reader and cinephile who couldn’t wait to discuss the latest movie or tv show; an intellectual film snob with nothing snobbish about him. I could go on and on.

Glenn was stoic and hated to ask for help – a Hill family trait that I’m fighting as I type this. We can never fill his shoes, but together we can try to make things a little easier for Rachel at this unthinkably tragic time. All donations will go directly to Rachel and their baby boys. Thank you.”
