He was born on 24 June 1976 in El Paso, Texas to Harold Ken Hill and Armida Molina Voigt and was the youngest of their three children. Vance married Peggy Rusnak on 20 October 2007 in Houston, Texas. He has two sons, Gianni and Enzo.

Uncle Fernando (Mary) Molina, of El Paso, Texas, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins in Texas.

Vance was a devoted husband and father. He always knew someone every place he went and filled every moment with meaning and life. His passion was coaching youth football in Washington, and recently in Houston with his son’s team. His long-time career was real estate, and he also obtained his certification to train clients in Olympic Weight Lifting and Cross Fit. He ran a gym in Stanwood, Washington, and had plans to open a similar gym in northwest Houston once the Covid uncertainty had lifted on small businesses. His other passion was the Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Gators, all things college football and SEC!

Vance graduated from Coronado High School in El Paso, Texas, in 1994. From there he moved to Dallas and then Denver. Friends in Denver encouraged him to get his bachelor’s degree. He graduated from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. While at Kent, he studied Italian language and fashion merchandising. After graduation, he moved to Portland, Oregon, and then moved to Austin, Texas in 2006. While in Austin, he met his wife, Peg, a couple weeks after his 30th birthday. After one date, they were inseparable. They got engaged in October 2006 and married in October 2007 at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church. At the time of his death, they were together for 15 short years.
