It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Tim Dillon age 61 of Sarnia on Sunday, May 8th, 2022. He was the loving husband of Carol Ann Dillon and dear father of Mariah Dillon (Ross) and Cortney Dillon (Alex). Predeceased by his parents Bernard Dillon and Anna Dillon. Tim is survived by his siblings Bruce (Colette), Robin Gleason (Gary), David (Janice), Jamie (Sue), and Lisa Bronzi (Joe). Dear son-in-law to Agnes Giffels and the late Berton Giffels. Brother in law to Darlene Giffels (Perry). Cherished Uncle to many nieces and nephews. Colleague and friend to the innumerable people he met along the way.
Tim (a.k.a. Trim, Captain Chaos, High Maintenance Tim, Tear Down Tim, Uncle Timbit) was born on March 4th, 1961 in Sarnia. He grew up playing hockey, football and basketball. After graduating from St Patrick’s High School, Tim started his career at Dow in 1978 and worked there for 11 years. It was during this time that he found his passion for home building, starting Dillon Homes with members of his family. He then worked for Timberfield for 12 years selling trusses in Ontario and Michigan. His integrity and gregariousness ever-present in his business dealings, Tim decided to strike out on his own with Tim Dillon Consulting, building custom homes and working with Re/Max as a real estate agent. His career in real estate started with securing all the land for First Solar throughout Ontario.
Tim was loved by many and he truly loved his girls. He spoiled them, with a dear friend saying that in her next life she wants to come back as a “Dillon daughter”. Tim and Carol Ann (his Lucky Lulu) were looking forward to celebrating 40 years of marriage together this November. They had just returned from a wonderful trip to Florida before Tim’s sudden passing. He loved going to Disney, Fort Myers, The BonAire and Lions games but after 10 days he was ready to get back to beautiful Bluewaterland. He was very proud of where he was from and cleaned Murphy beach every Sunday morning, was a former board member of the Point Edward Skating Club and volunteered with various organizations. Tim was always prepared to drop whatever he was doing to help, or have a beer, with anyone who asked. He was so happy in the home he built, a generous host with BBQ’s, fires and pool parties, with a rule that if the garage door is open, come on in. The positive impact Tim had on those around him remains, and his passing reminds us to live every day to the fullest, like he always said “Don’t blink.”
The family wishes to invite all those who would like to raise a glass in honour of Tim, to a Celebration of Life at the Sarnia Golf and Curling Club located at 500 Errol Road W, Sarnia, ON N7V 1X7 on Thursday May 12th, 2022 from 2:00pm until 5:00pm.
