Tyson Russell Hill

February 8, 1986 — October 15, 2023



Our gentle-hearted giant left a giant size hole in the hearts & lives of those who loved him. Surrounded by love, he was gone way too soon.

Tyson was born in Davenport, Iowa and remained in the North Scott area most of his life. He graduated from North Scott High School in 2004, then completed skilled training at Job Corp in Denison, Iowa. He married Tabby Christensen in June of 2017. Tyson loved music, wrestling, cooking, comedy, gaming, Anime, a good movie & ‘DJ’ing . He was our go-to computer guy as well as an all-around good guy to the world. He had a huge heart & loved to help others. He wanted to make a positive impact in the world.

Chambers Funeral Home, Eldridge is assisting the family with arrangements.

In Oct. 2015, Tyson was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. He was given 3 years to live, however he lived 8 years, mostly in good health, with a recent sudden decline. Tyson’s goal from the beginning of this battle was to help find the cure for this specific disease. He chose to donate his body for that purpose, & so his tissue was sent to the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation.

Tyson became a Christian as a child & his relationship with the Lord has grown substantially in the last year, especially. There is no doubt that this battle-weary warrior received his Heavenly reward. We know that he is now in Perfect Peace.

He is survived by his wife Tabby, mother Connie Shannon, father & stepmother Ronald & Cindy Hill, and his ‘bonus’ (step) grandparents Frances Lee of Temple, Texas & also Harlan & Janet Pfohl of Dubuque, Iowa. Also included are sister Courtney (Brian) Henson, brothers Ronald Hill II, & Ethan (Karin) Hill. Also included are his ‘bonus’ siblings; (stepbrother) Brian Latham, (stepsister) Michelle (Nick) Wells, (sister-in-law) DeAnna Allbrook & (brother-in-law) Zachary Allbrook. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, precious friends & a great nephew.

He was preceded in death by all four biological grandparents: Harry Hill, Edith Hill, Harry Lee & Margie Lee, (stepfather) Jim Shannon, multiple Uncles & cousins as well as two close Aunts: Luanna Brabant & Katie Ratliff.

Celebration of Life will be held at Community of Hope church, 415 West 53rd St. Davenport, IA on Friday, October 27, 2023, at 3:00pm.
