October 24, 1926 — December 29, 2020

William Harrel Dinwiddie, 94 of Tipton, passed away Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at his home surrounded by family.

He was born on October 24, 1926 in Higbee, MO, a son of Harrel H. and Florence M. (Tegtmeier) Dinwiddie. On June 27, 1954 in Fulton, MO, he married Jo Ann Straub who preceded him in death on January 13, 2006.

Bill honorably served in the United States Army, was a Freemason and a member of the Tipton United Methodist Church. He owned and operated as a Pharmacist, the Tipton Rexall Drugs store alongside his wife Jo Ann from 1960 – 1996. Bill was known by his friends around town as Dr. Bill. He served on the Tipton School Board for many years and on the board at Tipton Oak Manor. He enjoyed fishing, cooking, baking bread, wood working and collecting bow ties. Recently Bill enjoyed working at his new Hydroponic garden business called Jo’s Garden. One of Bill’s greatest enjoyments was being involved in anything his grandchildren or great-grandchildren were doing.

Survivors include one daughter, Susan Camille Miller (David) of Tipton; five grandchildren, Jennifer Kruse (Mike), D.W. Norton (Cassie), Justin Miller (Holli), Chris Miller and Tim Miller; two great-grandchildren, Kayleigh Kruse and Zavannah, better known as Z-Jo to Bill.
