Bussie “BJ” Hill was born on September 9, 1934, in Ville Platte, Louisiana to Kirby and Agnes Hill and was a long-time resident of Ville Platte. BJ worked for the state of Louisiana for over thirty years as an investigator. Having been raised in South Louisiana, BJ was a true outdoorsman; he enjoyed hunting and fishing in his spare time. BJ also enjoyed sports, especially football.
