Edwin Carl Hilt
Ed Hilt passed away March 20, 2015 in Stockton at the age of 78. He was born in Honolulu Hawaii on February 14, 1937 to Art and Dorothy Hilt. Our Dad’s vocation in life was his family. Dad was a US Navy Boxing Champion and member of the Cathedral of the Annunciation. He provided for his immediate family, extended family and friends alike. Dad was our warrior and he fought up until the very end with quiet faith, courage, love, fidelity, compassion, determination, strength and awesomeness! These will be his legacy for all who knew him. Rest now Papa, we love you!
