He married Bertha Labor on Aug. 20, 1932 in Bryan County and then began producing this massive Dill family. From this union came seven sons, four daughters (one which was stillborn), 19 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 31 great-great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his second wife Mattie; daughters: Patricia Dill, Shirley Jacobs and Monona and husband Bobby; sons: Dock Dill and wife Marilyn, Junior Dill and wife Ruth Ann, Charles Dill and wife Sue and Jimmy Dill and wife Jan; daughters-in-law, Sara Joe Dill and Shelby Dill; 19 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 31 great-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Dock and Ollie Dill; wife, Bertha Dill; sons: Carl, Raymond and Joe Glen Dill; two brothers, eight sisters and the stillborn child.
He will be missed by many, but the things he taught us and the stories he told, and the memories will be talked about for years and years to come.
