Obituary for Robert "Bob" Dillard

Robert “Bob” M. Dillard went to be with his Heavenly Father on Wednesday, February 20, 2019. Bob was born in Aberdeen, Washington to parents Dale and Byrnedine (Burgess) Dillard on July 14, 1938. He graduated from North River High School and soon after married Betty Markham on June 1, 1957. Together they have four sons.

Bob enjoyed woodworking, especially making cradles for his granddaughters. Hunting deer in North River, fishing, and time in the garden whether growing roses or veggies were all relaxing hobbies for Bob. He got a kick out of driving his grader or any heavy equipment. His greatest love was being surrounded by his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Bob felt the calling of a pastor and after much studying his first church was with the Goshen Community Church on the Mission Road in Whatcom County. He went on to pastor in North River, Ravensdale, The Little Brown Chapel in Wickersham and lastly a little church in Marblemount. He was currently a member at Grace Baptist Fellowship in Lynden.

Bob is survived by his wife of 61 years, Betty; sons Lawrence Dillard, Robert (Katrina) Dillard, David (Kathleen) Dillard and Andrew (Davina) Dillard; granddaughters Misty, Lacey, DaniRae, Suni, Shanli, Rebecca, and Emilee; grandsons Caleb and Adam; and ten great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his brother Tom (Karen) Dillard, and will be greatly missed by his brother Calvin Dillard, sister Daleanne (Bill) Stone and numerous other relatives and friends.

You are invited to join the family for his memorial service on Saturday, March 2nd at 1 p.m. at Grace Baptist Fellowship in Lynden. The Graveside service will be held at North River Cemetery in Brooklyn, WA at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 9th. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Gillies Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
