Remembering Jim Hilton (Arrangement Information Updated)

Post Date:10/31/2017 10:32 AM

We are absolutely heartbroken at the loss of our long-time friend, Jim Hilton.

Picture of Jim Hilton reading "remembering Jim Hilton."

During his 45+ years at the Galveston County Health District, Jim exemplified the true meaning of public service. His authentic passion for the communities he served was obvious every day.

Through his work with our STD-HIV program, he touched thousands of lives and saved many along the way.

Words can not express the magnitude of his loss to our community.

Simply put: Jim was awesome.
