HARRISON -- Glenn "Giddyup" E. Dillon, 80, of Harrison, passed away Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019, at his home.

Glenn was born June 21, 1938, in Boynton, Missouri, the son of Donald and Theodosia (McDowell) Dillon. Mr. Dillon honorably served his country in the U.S. Army. Glenn began his civilian career working as a truck driver, delivering freight for more than 30 years, before retiring in 1994. Glenn was united in marriage to Ms. Yvonne J. McWethy on July 16, 1971, in Highland.

Mr. Dillon resided in Harrison since 2012, moving from Sears. He lived previously in Evart and White Lake. After Glenn's retirement, he and Yvonne spent 12 years as campground managers at Riverside Park Campground in Evart. When Glenn wasn't working, he enjoyed bow and rifle deer hunting, bowling, mowing grass and groundskeeping.

He was especially fond of traveling the U.S. with his wife. Many would say Glenn was a fierce euchre player.

Surviving Mr. Dillon is his loving wife of 47 years, Mrs. Yvonne J. Dillon, of Harrison; six daughters, Rhonda Vance, of North Carolina, Karen Stokes and husband Michael, of Evart, Lora Garland, of Maryville, Tennessee, Renee' Hull and husband Andy, of Golden, Illinois, Annette Maxwell and husband Tony, of Cadillac, and Rosie Danley and husband Mike, of Sears; one son, Matthew Bunch, of Golden, Illinois; 27 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; one sister, Violet, of Marshalltown, Iowa; three brothers; Richard Wyant, of Massachusetts, Jerry McDowell and wife Jenny, of Pontiac, and Danny Wyant and wife Pearl, of Green City, Missouri; plus many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Dillon was preceded in death by his parents; one son, Glenn M. Dillon; one son-in-law, Tom Garland; one sister, Regina; and four brothers, Marion, John, Charles and Paul Jr.

Celebration of life services honoring Mr. Dillon will be held at a later date.
