(BLOOMFIELD) - Greene County Assessor Willard Neill died unexpectedly Sunday morning at his Highland Township home from a heart attack.

He was 78.

Neill had filed his candidacy and was seeking a second term as county assessor. Greene County Coroner Sherri Wilson says Neill died of natural causes - a heart attack.

On Monday afternoon, Renie Powell, who has served as Chief Deputy Assessor was sworn in as the interim county assessor.

A notice was mailed on Monday to the Greene County Republican Party Chairman Pam Yoho, notifying her of the vacancy and stipulating that the party must have a caucus meeting within 30 days to name a replacement to fill out Neill's term, which ends Dec. 31.
