    A truly dedicated husband, father, grandfather and friend. Christian by faith and demonstrated by his daily actions. Met few strangers, was understanding and comforting to talk to and a friend to all. A true patriot and we thank you for your military service. Dill will be missed by all but will always be in our hearts. Bo Tharpe

    Our prayers and condolences to Aunt Maxine, Warren, and the entire family. Uncle Dill (as I knew him) was the true Patriarch of the Roberson family from within my part of the extended family. A true southern gentleman and christian role model for how to lead a family while being so kind and giving towards others. Too many wonderful memories to share of the countless fishing trips & camping in the VW Vanagon & the “brown van” all over the southeast and perhaps a few thousand fish fry’s, pool parties, & horseshoes too!
    With all our Love,
    Doug & Dawn Elliott

    I thought the world of Bro Dill. We worshipped together at Highland. I feel certain he was received into the presence of Christ.

    So sorry to hear of Dills passing, I was in the same class as Dill, we graduated from Tate High School, also know Maxine. He and I worked in same department for a while at Monsanto. He was a kind and soft spoken man. Maxine, I’m so sorry, I lost my husband in March 23, 2021. May God Bless and Keep You and Family in His Care.
