To the Family of Richard G. Dillon

To his Marcellus Central School Class of 1960 classmates, he was known as Dick Dillon, a kind, gentle and respected friend to all. His successful life is a testament to what can be accomplished through determination, persistence and hard work. He lived his live as an exemplar of dedication, caring and responsibility, to others and God. Our classmate, Ty King, perhaps made the best observation of Dick, "He was a good guy."

Ron Fiske, Paul Vidler and Dick's other MCS classmates send their heartfelt condolences to the Dillon Family so they know they are not alone in their bereavement.
