Della Hill


Della is a native of Eugene, Oregon. She grew up working in her parents’ jewelry store, living in the country riding horses and feeding cattle. She is a graduate of Churchill High School and pursued a career in banking as an operations office for 7 years before establishing Third Generation Painting Co. with David. She has been married to him for 38 years, is the mother of 3 kids, and “Mimi” to the world’s three most adorable grandchildren. When not working, she loves cooking for her family and friends, focusing on her favorite local charities, studying history, gardening, home décor, Oregon Duck Football (and tailgate parties!) and traveling the world because she is a small town girl who can’t resist big cities!

Three things about me:

  • I’m addicted to ACORN TV.
  • I could spend a fortune on cute workout clothes.
  • In high school, I was a “mannequin model,” when that was a thing.

David Hill


David was born in Springfield, Oregon to John and Joyce Hill. Both his grandfather and father were painters by trade and he grew up working in the family business. After graduating from Churchill High School, he entered the electrical apprenticeship, where he obtained his Oregon journeyman’s license. In 1982, he returned to his first love of painting due to the economic slump in the area. He has never looked back and really enjoys the challenge of the construction business.

Besides being the father to sons Andrew and Alex, daughter Elizabeth, he is “Papa” to three grandkids. When not working he loves hunting, fishing, watersports, snowmobiling, rebuilding muscle cars, playing golf, and supporting Oregon Duck Football.

Three things about me:

  • I love to travel to warm places in the winter.
  • I enjoy the Hallmark Channel.
  • I am well known for my smoking and grilling skills.
