Dave Hilton Memorial Fund

Dave Hilton passed away very unexpectedly on Sunday, September 17th at the age of 67. He leaves behind his wife Patty (63); children: Matt (41), Megan (37), Amy (33), and their spouses; and grandchildren: Luke (11), Tyler (9), Evan (8), Sage (6), Hope (4), and Caleb (11 months) .  With no pre-existing conditions or any known health issues, his death has come as a complete shock to his family, friends, and the Arizona baseball community. 

Thank you to so many of you who have reached out to the Hilton family to see how you can help during this incredibly difficult time. This GoFundMe is being set up to allow Dave's brothers and their families to travel from out-of-state to attend his memorial on October 14th. It will also help cover costs for the memorial service and celebration. They appreciate your care, love, and support more than they could ever express. 

Dave Hilton was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and coach who showed compassion, patience, and humility to everyone he met. One of his close friends wrote this article, which provides a glimpse into the impact Dave had on so many lives:
