SABATTUS — James Kenneth Hilb, 58, of Sabattus, passed away in his home Tuesday, Feb. 21, after a long battle with cancer.

Jim was born in Plainfield, N.J., on Aug. 17, 1958, where he attended high school. He then received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Southern Maine and started his long career of 29 years at Bath Iron Works.

Jimmy is survived by his wife of 34 years, Susan Foster Hilb. They loved going camping in their motor home with their grandchildren, and boating in his self-refurbished canoe together.

He is also survived by his three daughters, Michaela Hilb, Shannon Taylor and husband, Jeremy Taylor, and Jamie Hilb; two granddaughters, Addison Taylor and Sierra Pennel; his brother, Robert Hilb and wife, Barbara; and two sisters; Katherine Meltzer and husband, Neal, and Marjorie Swick and husband, Stephen; and many nieces and nephews.
