The Sill family traces their roots to England with earliest immigrants coming first to Connecticut around 1610, about 1769 to the Wyoming Valley, and after the Revolutionary War migrated west to Bradford County. Mr. Sill and his wife Ardena came to Tunkhannock in 1967, where they built a home on what is known now as Sill Hill Road.

Mr. Sill served two years with the US Army 1954-1956, and worked on various engineering projects for General Electric (including space program Project Apollo). In late years he was Safety Engineer and Project Manager for the local Proctor & Gamble plant and once retired from P&G, worked as a consultant for N C Stauffer. He was an active member of the Osterhout Bible Church; served as an EMT and officer with the Tunkhannock Community Ambulance Association; and was a member of the Advisory Council behind the establishment of the County Emergency Communication system (9-1 -1). Mr. Sill was an Advanced Class Amateur Radio operator (KD3XR), amateur architect (designed the family home); and an amateur musician (harmonica).
