Justin LeMar Dill

May 3, 1987 — Dec. 25, 2012

DUNCAN — Justin LeMar Dill, Chili Dog, Chili and Lil j, as we all knew and called him, entered this life May 3, 1987, as a precious gift from God to Faye Dill and Carnell Dean in Duncan.

Justin grew up in Duncan and attended public schools there. He graduated from Duncan High School on May 18, 2006. He was employed with Sanner Salvage as a machine operator in Velma.

Justin was a loving and respectful young man, he would give you the shirt off his back. He had a smile that would light up a room and was a friendly and very outgoing person who loved life and loved people. He loved spending time with his nephews and his family. Justin was a jokester. He loved to joke around and said the funniest things.

He was smart and loved to do different things on his computer. He loved wrestling and was a “CHAMPION ATHLETE.” Justin mentored several young people in the field of wrestling, teaching them move after move and break after break.

Justin accepted Christ at an early age and had his own personal relationship with God. The last few weeks of his life, he began to talk about God and what God had placed him here to do. Justin knew it was a call on his life to do something for God because he spoke on it all the time. “HE KNEW.”

Justin LeMar Dill departed this life to be with Jesus Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012 at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Justin, you will be truly missed. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Mildred and Robert Dill and several family members gone before him.

Cherishing his memory are his survivors: his mother Faye Dill, stepfather Mike Palka and father Carnell Dean, all of Duncan; one sister Demetra Hennessey of Oklahoma City; three brothers Dontae Hartsfield, Marco Dill and Chauncey Luna, all of Duncan; daughter Madison Lynn Dill of Orvill, Calif.; sons Corbin Lane Dill and Domanic Kruz Ontiveros, both of Duncan; grandparents Cindy Mae Hudson of Duncan and Richard Dean Jr. of Oklahoma City; six uncles Tony Dean (Tonjla), Robert Dill III (Florence), Walter Dill, all of Duncan, Richard L. Dean of Oklahoma City, Leslie Dill (Sony) of Manhattan, Kan. and Calvin Dill (Angela) of Lahoma, La.; five aunts Rolinda Dean, Louise Wagonseller, Ruby Pippin, all of Duncan, and Paralea Reed (Jim) of Archer City, Texas.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
