Robert "Bob" Henry Dill

July 26, 2013

Robert “Bob” Henry Dill of Indianapolis died Friday. He was 85.

Born Dec. 14, 1927, he was the son of the late Dr. E.M. Dill and Martha Gertrude Paddack.

Mr. Dill lived at the Indiana Boys’ School in Plainfield, where his father served as superintendent. He graduated from Plainfield High School in 1945. After two years as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, Mr. Dill graduated in 1950 from Indiana University, Bloomington with a degree in business.

He co-managed Dill-Fields Implement Co. in Greenfield with his sister, Virginia Dill McCarty, who was a prominent lawyer, U.S. attorney, and political figure in Indiana. He worked for several years as a salesman for Continental Steel based out of Kalamazoo, Mich., then managed the Dill family dairy farm in Hendricks County.

An active member of the Hendricks County Farm Bureau, Mr. Dill was also involved in the local health board activities. He was instrumental in founding the Indiana Chapter of the Pony of the Americas Club, helping the family-oriented organization take a foothold across the Midwest. In 1972, he relocated to Taos, N.M., where he founded and managed a clothing and leather goods store called The Hole in the Wall. In 1978 Mr. Dill returned to Indianapolis and founded a business accounting firm. He retired in 2000 as business manager for the Indiana State Teacher’s Retirement Fund.

Mr. Dill was a licensed pilot and flew across the country many times. He also supported his sister Virginia in her political bids for Indiana state attorney general and governor.

Survivors include his wife of 33 years, Grace A. Falvey; children, Jennifer Dill Ovink of Washington, Elizabeth “Betsy” D. Holtsclaw of Indiana, and Tom M. Dill of California; stepdaughters Annie Kuhn, Joan Falvey, Ruth Falvey, and Gillian Steele; sons-in-law, Roger W. Ovink and Rick D. Holtsclaw; grandchildren Amanda Reynolds, Audra Courtney, Sarah M. Ovink, Kathryn R. Ovink, and Aria Zia Sophia Dill-Fielding; and nine great-grandchildren.

No services are scheduled.
