Frank Hilliard, 57, passed away from cancer on May 17.

Born in Charleston, SC, Frank was the son of Roy and Luna Hilliard (Greer, SC).

He is survived by his wife, Beth (Greer), daughter Rosemary (Boston, MA), son, Sam (Columbia, SC), sister June Ross and her husband, Doug (Greer), as well as numerous extended family members both in the Greenville and Atlanta, GA, areas.

Frank is also survived by his two rescue dogs, Zuke and Pearl who kept him company during his extended illness.

Frank embraced life. He attended the University of South Carolina where he became an avid Gamecock fan, often sparring with his many Clemson friends.

He worked 34 years in the mortgage finance industry, living in Chicago, Boston, Milwaukee and Greensboro.

Frank traveled extensively and enjoyed making contacts all over the country.

He had a passion for golf and spent his last years at Holly Tree Country Club in Simpsonville, SC.

Frank faced his illness with extreme bravery, documenting the challenges, good and bad over social network and in the public domain. He touched many souls, giving the rest of us hope that we can face our own mortality with such honesty and courage.

A memorial service will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1135 State Park Road in Greenville, on Saturday, May 23, 2:00 p.m. officiated by Rev. Richard Stower of Scituate, MA and Rev. Pat Jobe.

The family will receive visitors following the service at the Fellowship.

The family wishes to thank Delphine Foster, RN, and the rest of Open Arms Hospice staff and volunteers for their compassionate care.

In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to Open Arms Hospice, 1836 West Georgia Road, Simpsonville, SC 29680.
