Devon Community Hero - Christopher Dill
Corporal Christopher Dill: March 20th, 2009
The Thunder and Devon Energy honored Corporal Christopher Dill, an Oklahoma City firefighter who died in the line of duty in March 2009. Corporal Dill, a former Marine and an Oklahoma City firefighter for 15 years, collapsed after battling a three-alarm apartment fire. Hundreds of firefighters from Oklahoma and Texas gathered to honor Dill during his funeral service — their engines, ladders and rescue vehicles lining streets around the church. Dills was the first Oklahoma City firefighter in 20 years to die in the line of duty. The Thunder and Devon Energy salute Corporal Dill for his brave service and ultimate sacrifice.
