Anthony F. ‘Tony,’ ‘Catfish’  Dill, 56, of Williamsburg, died Friday, March 18, 2016.

He was born August 6, 1959. A ‘Tony of all trades,’ he was employed in tree cutting and trimming in Chester. He attended Zuni Home for Boys, Chester Virginia Schools. He enjoyed the outdoors, music, fishing and hunting; he loved the land.

Mr. Dill was of Baptist faith. He was loved; and he’s surely going to be missed. He loved to make jokes and get folks laughing. He would share the last shirt off his back and give his last bread if you needed more than he.  To say he was kindhearted is an understatement for Tony, or Catfish, as many knew him on the streets.

He is survived by his daughter, Amber Dill, and two grandsons of Topping; two sisters, Florence Shibley of Vero Beach, Fla., and Doris Annette Rinehart of Arkansas; one brother, Warren B. Dill of Hopewell; and a number of nieces and nephews.

‘The road is long, Anthony, as your journey is done. Knowing you’re in heaven, the fun has just begun. We love you!’

The family would like to thank all who gave a kind hand and effort to Anthony’s welfare at Oxford House; Social Worker Roy Derardi, Amy at Hotel, Chrissy at Outreach, Ashley at Bucktrout of Williamsburg Funeral Home. The family is thankful for the many kind hands assisting them.

Contributions are needed and very appreciated. They may be made to in memory of Anthony ‘Tony’ Dill at Bucktrout of Williamsburg Funeral Home. God bless!
