Fredrick J Dill, 91, passed away peacefully at Kobacker Hospice Home on Friday, April 13, 2018. He was born in Columbus, Ohio on June 9, 1926.
Fred is preceded in death by his loving wife of 66 years, Doris P. Dill, his parents, Fred and Maude Dill, his brothers, Melvin and Dean Dill, and his sister Harriett Birtcher.
He is survived by his sister Dorothy Garrett, his sons, Dennis Dill and Donald (Crystal) Dill, grandson, Brian Dill, granddaughters, Tina (Eddie) Soto, Cyndi (Robert) Slingsby, and Chelynn (Archie) Godfrey, and 11 great grandchildren.
Fred has been a faithful and joyful servant of the Lord. He worked and retired from Limbach Company for 40+ years. He enjoyed working on all of his cars and then showing them off! Fun memories of him peeling out of the church parking lot. He would grin from ear to ear! He thrived working around the home that he built in 1953. He was always a helpful hand with Doris in the garden. He was a wonderful storyteller! Often hearing the same stories repeatedly but we all enjoyed the enthusiasm and smiles as he spoke. He loved to travel to Florida in the winters, where he enjoyed spending time on his bicycle and on the pontoon boat at the lake.
He was claimed as a husband, father, uncle, brother, grandpa, and best friend to the many who knew and loved him. He will be deeply missed!
