Remembering Tom Dill

May 2021 Posted in Obituary

The Friends of Silver Falls State Park, and the community at large, have lost a dedicated and much-loved volunteer. Tom Dill passed on April 4, 2021. He will be ever so greatly missed by all.

Tom spent many hours at the Park as a Trail Ambassador, Nature Store Volunteer, and supporter of the preservation of the Stone Shelter. He and his wife Ann Marie were at every event at the Park helping out and spreading good camaraderie.

He served on the Board of Directors, often offering a fresh point of view.

In addition to all that he volunteered at Willamette Heritage Center as a restorer of the SP caboose there. He was employed as an engineer for Southern Pacific – and built the most amazing model train set up in his home!

Tom and Ann Marie participated in the Adopt-a-Road program and volunteered regularly at their church. Tom was truly invested in his community in so many ways.

The Friends wish to extend warm thoughts to Tom’s extended family – he was loved by all and shall be extremely missed.

A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, May 15 at 11:00 a.m. Capacity is very limited due to COVID.
