Norbert J. Dill, Sr

Norbert J. Dill, Sr., age 87, of Rich Fountain, passed away on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, at Phelps County Regional Hospital in Rolla.

Norbert was born on May 11, 1929, in Rich Fountain, a son to the late Henry and Cecilia (Luecke) Dill.

Norbert was employed with the MFA #280 in Freeburg for 44 years as a feed truck driver and later the feed mill operator.

Norbert was a lifelong and very devoted member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rich Fountain.

Norbert was a lifelong farmer. He enjoyed his Hereford cattle and his Ford tractors. When you could not find him with his cattle or on his tractor, he enjoyed going squirrel hunting. He was an avid bingo player during his stay at the Mo. Veterans Home in St. James. However, his greatest love was the time spent with his family.

Dill, Jr., and his wife Christy of Rich Fountain and Gregory Dill of Rich Fountain; one daughter, Christine C.
