Fire investigators in Goodlettsville say 84 year old Richard "Dicky" Hilton was killed early Friday morning in a house fire on Draper Drive.
Hilton was found on his bedroom floor by firefighters who entered the home during the blaze. Investigators believe the man was trying to get out when he was overcome by smoke.
The cause of the fire is undetermined, but investigators cannot rule out an electrical problem. The fire appears to have started in the home's sun room.
Hilton's family members say he recently lost his wife, Nancy, last year.
"Love of each other's lives. She was always just beautiful to him in every way," says Hilton's daughter Nancy Wilson.
The couple had been married for 60 years. Richard Hilton had been by his wife's bedside until her death last August.
"He's with my mom and that's where he wanted to be. He missed her so bad after she passed away, so he's with her, and that's the only thing that gets me through is knowing they're together," says Nancy Wilson.
Richard Hilton served in the Air Force and owned a sheet metal business in Nashville. Services will be arranged by Forest Lawn Funeral Home in Goodlettsville.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
