Did Vince and Annie Hall have children together?
Vince and Annie had a son together, Athol.
In 2014, Hill’s only son was found dead at the age of 42.
What did Vince Hall say after the death of his wife Annie?
After the death of his beloved wife, Vince Hill was devastated.
In 2017, the late singer told The Express: “Her death left a big void – I was just stunned.”
“When I go to the bathroom, I assume I’ll come back in and see her, and I dream that I’m talking to her.”
He continued, “It’s been a horrible time.” I’ve spent a lot of time talking to friends and neighbors in the pub – they don’t mind if it gets too much. “Other people go through so much, and it really helps to be able to talk about it.”
Of Annie’s funeral, Vince added, “I was too desperate to sing, but I played a song she loved — I’ll Be Seeing You.”
“Annie was my toughest critic but also my biggest fan.” I thought her death was the end of the road, but talking to people and getting back on the treadmill was my way forward. “She would like that.”
