Monte Eugene Hillman

October 07, 1947 - December 14, 2021

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Monte Hillman, of Tucson, Arizona on December 14, 2021 the age of 74 years after a brief illness.

Monte grew up in a loving home in Montclair New Jersey. His father and uncle were an
international vaudeville act, known as the “The Hillman Brothers. “They came from a long line of entertainers. His mother worked as a Rosie a riveter assembling airplanes. Both of his parents’ completed education beyond high school and emphasized education so much that all of his siblings attended and completed college.

Monte was a risk taker, living life to the fullest in the fast lane. In his adolescents on a dare
thinking he was Superman, he leaped off a roof over a pile of tires subsequently landing on his back which resulted in having back problems for the remainder of his life.

Monte Eugene Hillman, 74, a retired computer engineer, son of the late Christopher and
Jeanette Hillman. He is survived by one brother Dr. Hillman and two twin sisters, Yvette and
Yvonne (predeceased).

At an early age Monte exhibited a strong affinity for math, truly a math prodigy. He loved taking things apart and putting them back to get together. His math skills were so superior he took advanced classes in mathematics at the neighboring university even while he was a junior in high school. Those skills led him to study computers. He attended several colleges but eventually graduated from the University of Dayton in 1974 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

Monte did a short stint in the army serving in Germany. After returning to the states while honing his computer skills, he worked for McDonald Douglas and eventually settled in Arizona. He worked on the computer systems for missiles at Howard Hughes aircraft which merged with Raytheon in 1997. In addition, he was a Sr. Consultant for Boeing in Information Technology Services.

Monte was also very involved with 72 Aquatics Dive Shop /Desert Dolphins not only as a scuba diving instructor but as a traveler helping with Membership and Photography. His recent trip was only a few months ago.

Monte will be sorely missed by many. He was a great brother, friend and neighbor with a great sense of humor to those who knew him.
