OBITUARY

Kenneth Allen Dill

November 3, 1964January 5, 2020

Kenneth Allen Dill, known to all who loved him as Kenny, age 55, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 5th, 2020 at his home in Alta Loma, CA. He was born November 3, 1964 to Robert E. Dill, Sr. (2018) and Sadie Ann (Barfield) Dill (1993) in Covina, California where he was raised with his sister Kimberly “Kim” Ann (Dill) Wiedeman and brother Robert “Bobby” E. Dill, Jr. Kenny graduated from Gladstone High School in 1983. At 17, Kenny began working for his father at Swiss House Machining in Glendora, CA. He dedicated 18 years as a machinist, before starting his career as a Concrete Pumper in 1999. He worked for Merli Construction, and then moved on to CONCO Construction. He retired in 2015, due to failing health. Pumping concrete was a job he truly loved, as it allowed him to be outside, and at a different location every day. Kenny would come home exhausted, filthy, and happy as could be. He took so much pride driving around Southern California and sharing the stories of all the buildings, bridges, freeways and homes he helped to build. While pumping was his career, his family was his life. Kenny is survived by his wife of 29 years, Sheri Ann (Gilson) Dill and his three children Korey Allen Dill, Sadie Ann (Dill) Cervantes, and Sunni Frances Dill; his sister Kim (husband Del Wiedeman) and brother Bobby (wife Susan Dill) and his nieces and nephews Tyler, Brianna, Garrett, Eden and Mackenzie and eight great nieces and nephews who always referred to him as “Uncle Benny”. Spending time with family and friends was his favorite thing to do. He loved to ride his quad in the dunes, and his motorcycle to anywhere it would take him. He had a passion for anything on wheels, which could be seen by all of the vehicles he restored. But by far, his favorite thing to do was to simply sit around with his friends and family, enjoy a good meal, and talk until the wee hours. He was known for a friendly wave from the front yard, the garage door always being open so you could just walk right in for a chat. Being with people, sharing laughs and stories, and making all those around him feel at home was his gift. Family, friends, and all those who were touched by Kenny’s infectious smile, kind heart, and sense of humor, are invited to the Dill Family home for a potluck and backyard party on Saturday, January 18th 2020 from 3-6:00 p.m. We will reminisce, laugh, console and share our love for this amazing man who left such a lasting impression on all of us.

So sad to hear this. My deepest condolences to his entire family. I lived on Greenhaven St. I became good friends with Kenny's mother, Sadie and father Bob. That was in 1971. Kim, Bobby, and Kenny were very young then. They were great kids as I remember. Kenny always had his head under the hood of car with his dad. Kenny was a super kid.
May he rest in peace.

I used to babysit Kenny and his brother Bobby as a neighbor when they were young boys living on Greenhaven Street, Covina and was shocked today to hear of his passing. I extend my most humble and heartfelt condolences to his wife, children, and family. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. May Bobby Rest in Peace in the graces of our father Lord Jesus Christ.

I grew up my whole life with Kenny’s sister Kim as my best friend, so there probably isn’t a time that Kenny and Bobby weren’t in my life. He was like my “little brother “ and I will always think of him like that. I loved him then and will love him as a brother forever. My thoughts and prayers are with Sheri and his children but also for Kim and Bobby and their families, as the void will be there for all of them. I don’t think there is a person who knew Kenny that didn’t love him and couldn’t wait for a great big bear hug from him. Love you little brother and I will never forget your smile!!

So very sad to hear this. My brother Bob lived across the street and my brother John lived next door to the Dills on Greenhaven. I have known this family since the early 60s. Bob and Ann were great people and the best neighbors. It was always fun to be around the Dills. Kenny will be missed by everyone. Love, thoughts and prayers to the entire Dill family and their many friends.
