Parents’ tribute to Grand Canyon crash victims

The parents of two “inseparable” brothers who died in the Grand Canyon helicopter crash have described the pair as “the heart” of their family.

in a statement to the Foreign Office, Reverend David and Mrs Sandra Hill said their sons Stuart and Jason Hill were “happy, outgoing people who loved cycling, walking and spending time with family and friends”.

“Jason and Stuart were wonderful sons, inseparable brothers and just remarkable people who were truly loved and will be deeply missed by so many, many people,” the couple said.

“We have a large extended family and Jason and Stuart were always at the heart of it, organising get-togethers and always with time for others.

“If ever either of us came home after a difficult day, Jason or Stuart would be there with a smile or a hug, and that was all we needed to lift our spirits again.
