AIKEN, SC: Mr. William R. Dill, Jr., 75, loving companion of Sherry Siegmund Norton, passed away on Tuesday, April 12, 2022.
Bill was born in Greenville, SC, the son of the late William Rowley Dill, Sr., and the late Kate Greer Dill. He was reared in Greenville and graduated from Parker High School. Bill attended Clemson University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering.

Bill and his ex-wife Lorraine raised two children, a son Brian and a daughter Karen. In earlier years, he enjoyed sailing and bicycling. After becoming single and meeting Sherry, the new couple took several vacations traveling in the western US, Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii. Some were hiking vacations and some were leisurely bus tours. Later, Bill and his son Brian enjoyed attending Clemson football games and USC Aiken baseball games. Also, going out to the movies was a favorite pastime. Bill was a mild mannered but social and friendly person who also enjoyed simply staying home.
He is survived by Sherry Norton of their home in Aiken; his son Brian Dill of Lexington, SC; and his sister Kitty (Don) Thielke, both of Greenville, SC. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter Karen Dill and his nephews Chris Thielke and Russell Thielke.
