Bill Dills was a man of action.
He didn’t seek fame or even want credit for pushing Grant County along. He preferred to stay behind the scenes.
Grant County lost a firm believer in the community when Dills, 84, died on May 15 at his Dry Ridge home. His wife, Ruth, also 84, died the day before.
When Dills was named Grant Countian of the Year in 2008, he was almost shy about being interviewed.
He said his philosophy was simple, that people were put on this Earth to try and make a difference and that’s the way he lived his life.
