Bradley James Dill was born July 27, 1999 in Springfield, MO at the St. John’s Hospital to Jeffrey Dill and Michelle (Bellew) Dill. He passed away March 15, 2021 at the Weaubleau Creek Low Water Crossing.
He graduated Weaubleau High School on May 5th, 2017. Brad was an incredibly fast learner, and began his career working at Ferrell Industries in Warsaw, MO operating and repairing CNC equipment, then onto Grizzly industrial in Springfield, MO. He set financial goals to reach before the age of 21. He moved to Indiana and began a career in industrial maintenance for ConAgra foods. He met his financial goal but was home sick and returned to Collins, MO in February 2021. He began a new job at Enersys/Northstar in Springfield maintaining their automated robotics system.
Brad had the biggest heart you can imagine, and would dedicate his free time helping anyone who needed it. He had a soft spot for children with disabilities and the elderly. He loved to fish and hunt. His new past time was riding his 4 wheeler to Weaubleau creek. He was the most fun-loving adorable HUGE man in the world. He wanted to make sure his family was well taken care of. Anyone who spent time with Brad knew he loved to have fun, enjoy life, and you could never go very long without his personality and humor making you laugh. He will be dearly missed by all.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother and grandfather, Edna (Hathcoat) – Dill and his name sake, James Dill and his maternal grandfather Allen E Bellew III.
Brad is survived by 3 siblings Derek, Savannah, and Samantha Dill. His mother and father Michelle and Jeffrey Dill. His nephew Xavier Dill, and numerous family and friends.
