According to an obituary on the Carson-Wall Funeral Services website, the elder Hill, 60, died at 4:55 p.m. Saturday after an accidental fall. Friends said the accident occurred when Ted was helping Shaun work on a barn at the quarterback's home at the Lake of the Ozarks.
"Just a very humble and generous man, that's the best way to describe him," said Steve Lardy, play-by-play voice of Parsons (Kan.) High School, via the Free-Press. "And it's reflected in his son. Shaun's his dad's kid. They're identical.
"Very humble, very active in the community. Shaun comes back here every year and gives a lot of his time to kids in the community, and Ted was that way, too. Very humble. You'd never know Shaun played in the NFL -- you wouldn't -- and he's been that way ever since he left town."
Shaun Hill, a nine-year pro, played football and basketball for his father at Parsons High, where he started three seasons at quarterback and led the Vikings to back-to-back state tournament appearances in basketball. Ted Hill was an assistant football coach, the boys and girls basketball coach, athletic director and later principal at Parsons High.
