Vernon Martin Dill passed away peacefully in his family's company on Thursday, August 13th at age 82. Vernon was born on July 3rd 1933 in The Heights. He graduated from Reagan High School and The University of Houston. Retiring in 1980 from Cameron Iron Works after 27 years, he started Columbia Oil Tool and was a successful entrepreneur for 34 years. With his passing, the oil industry loses an innovative contributor. As a true native Texan, Vernon lived out the values of honesty, hard work, freedom and love of the good old USA, each day. His greatest joys include his family, road trips, baseball, gardening, bird hunting and fishing. He lived a full Christian life and had many wonderful friends. He was a constant source of comfort, wisdom, and encouragement. Vernon is survived by his sister Millie Scott and brother-in-law, George Campbell. He is preceded in death by mother Emma, father Fletcher, and brother Fletcher Jr. He leaves behind his wife and constant companion of 62 years, Jo Ann Campbell and three daughters, Diana (James Duty), Karen (Bob Linder), and Pam (John Myers). His life lessons live on in his 7 grandchildren, 3 step grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, 1 step great grandchild, nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend their deepest thanks to God and to the caring physicians and staff at Memorial Hermann, St. Luke's and M.D. Anderson in The Woodlands for giving us 16 additional years. With special appreciation to Dr. Amilcar Avendano, Dr. Lynn Copeland and Hospice of The Woodlands. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in his honor may be sent to Rice Baseball, Alumni Relations, PO Box 1892, Houston, Texas 77251-1892 or Klein United Methodist Good Neighbors Fund, 5920 FM 2920, Spring, Texas 77388.
