Rev. Otis Lynn Dillon

1957 - 2015

Rev. Otis Lynn Dillon, 57, of Fort Gay, WV, entered into rest Wednesday, June 24, 2015. 

Otis was born November 29, 1957 in Louisa, KY to Rev. Otis Dillon and the late Lillian Evans- Dillon.

He was an Elder of the Saltpetre Community Church where he served as Chairman of the Media Ministries. He was formerly the Assistant Pastor of Silver Creek Church.  He was self-employed as the owner of River Track Studio for many years where he recorded many projects that were popular in the bluegrass, gospel, and country industries. He was a very accomplished musician both on the road and in the studio.  He was a very loving and caring individual who left his mark on every life that he ever touched.  He will be truly missed by all who ever knew him.  Although the time of his departure was set by God before the foundation of the world, there will be a time of re-unitement reserved only for those that have been purchased by the blood of Christ.
