Blake Ryan Hill, 47, of Dalton, GA, passed away Saturday, March 6, 2021.  He was a much beloved friend and valued colleague of OW. 

 Hill had a distinguished career at Oriental Weavers for more than 22 years, where he was currently serving as Vice President of Sales, National Accounts. He had a passion for area rugs and a wealth of industry knowledge, but ultimately his dedication to his colleagues and customers helped grow and shape Oriental Weavers into the company it is today.

 Whether at work, on the tennis court or at a University of Georgia football game, he will always be remembered for his infectious smile, sense of humor and boundless energy.  While he brought happiness into so many lives, everyone knew that his daughters, Avery and Presley, brought him the most joy and a special glimmer to his eyes when he spoke about them. Blake was adored and cherished by his family, friends and co-workers. The Oriental Weavers family will never be the same without him.

 Hill is survived by the mother of his children, Mandi Albertson Hill; daughters, Avery and Presley Hill; parents, Steed Hill and Suzanne Hill; and sister, Holly Hill.
