Obituary: Cecil Hiltachk

Cecil Leroy Hiltachk passed away Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, in Kingman. Cecil was born Dec. 26, 1937, in Colusa, Calif., to Johnnie and Rose Hiltachk.

After leaving high school, he joined the Army, spending time in France, then in the Reserves. Cecil spent most of his life in Woodland, Calif., where he worked as a truck driver, receiving awards for his dedication to his job. He was also a skilled contractor, building additions on houses as side jobs. He retired in Arizona. Growing accustomed to the desert was a surprise to those who knew him, as he loved the farm country.

Over his lifetime, he loved collecting and trading. He was a master trader and enjoyed going to swap meets and antique stores in his spare time. He loved the 1950s era, old cars, and motorcycles, still riding in the last months of his life. He had many collections over the years, including baseball cards, trains, marbles and BB guns.

He will be missed by his family and friends. Cecil is preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Jim and Jerry; and his latest wife, Geraldine. He is survived by his cousin, Pat Moore; daughter, Theresa Estep (Anthony); grandchildren, Alysha Phillips (Timothy) and Anthony Estep II; and by two great-grandchildren.
