Dillard E. Pinion, age 68, passed away at Turkey Creek Tennova Hospital in West Knoxville on Wednesday, Jan. 23. Dillard was born on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 1950 to Joe and Vonniece Pinion in Lambert, Mississippi. His family moved to Genoa, Illinois on July 6, 1960, where he remained until his enlistment in the US Navy. Upon completion of his tour of duty, he settled in LaFollette and took care of his elderly parents. Dillard accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior as a young boy and was baptized by the Rev. Frank Frost. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Sycamore, Illinois. He was employed by A&S Steel in Lake City. Dillard loved farming and working outdoors. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone he saw in need. He loved to joke and tease, and exercised this talent quite often. He was a bachelor; he never got married, but he took great pride in his nieces, nephews, cousins and the children of his friends. He will be missed very much by his family and friends.
Dillard was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Vonniece Pinion; brothers, Joe Pinion, Jr. (Sonny) and David Pinion; sisters, Polly, Joyce Underwood O'Bryant and Sybil Marie Carr; nieces, Tracy Brooks and Samantha Davis; nephews, Steven Carr and Shane Davis; great nieces, Britany Underwood and Mira Hardin; brother-in-law, Cordell Davis; and sisters-in law, Lynette Pinion and Connie Jo Pinion.
