Obituary

Richard (Dick) Henry Dilley, 78, of Billings, MT, passed away at home with family by his side under Stillwater Hospice care, from prolonged illnesses of congestive heart failure and COPD.

Born December 11, 1942, in Seattle, Washington to Otis Henry Dilley and Rosa Mae Byrd Dilley. Dick had an older sister, Connie Glover.

Dick was raised in Issaquah, Washington and graduated from Issaquah High School in 1961. Immediately after graduating, he moved to Montana to pursue a trucking job. While in high school, Dick worked as a gas station attendant for Mobil and delivered newspapers on a motor route. Dick loved to spend his summers in Eastern Washington staying with his grandparents and visiting with uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Dick’s next job back in Montana after moving was Pepsi Bottling in Billings.

Dick married Genevive (Genny) Vermandel on February 6, 1965 and then reported to San Diego, California for Navy Boot Camp. Upon returning from the military, Dick went to work at Pierce Trailer Sales where he multitasked many jobs of wiring trailers, truck driving and painting.

Dick’s dream job was driving truck at Consolidated Freightways. His runs took him into numerous Montana towns and into Idaho. Due to cancer in his spine, Dick had to retire from truck driving in 1986. Dick had many interests like hunting and fishing the Big Horn with a good friend, Roger Kephart, lapidary work with rocks, and wood working. His heart was really into restoring old cars and had a fleet of old relics.

Dick is survived by his wife Genny of 56 years, three children, Otis (Kim) Dilley of Great Falls, MT, Jeannette (Jared) Haworth of Billings, MT, Charlie (Megan) Dilley of Livingston, MT, four grandchildren, Shaylyn Dilley, Shelby Haworth, Chaz Dilley and Jordan Haworth, and numerous nephews and nieces.

The family would like to thank the Billings Clinic doctors and nurses for their wonderful care. Also, a big thanks goes to staff of Stillwater Hospice. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Stillwater Hospice of Montana.

MJ & I are so very sorry to learn that Dick has passed on. I have several happy and funny memories of Dick as I worked alongside him at CF for many years. He loved to laugh and make others laugh, and it was obvious how much he loved and cared about his family. He also had that "Dad thing" of worrying about his family's well-being. Please know he will be missed among his circle of friends.

Jenny, Otis, Jeannette, Charlie and all family members.
There are no words enough to tell you how sorry I am for Dick's passing. He was such a kind and gentle man and always had a smile on his face. My heart goes out to all of you during this time of sadness in your life. Prayers of comfort. Pat Beddes
