Obituary for Howard D. Dillman

DILLMAN, HOWARD Pinckney, Michigan Age 60, passed away on December 24, 2015 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Howard lost his life after a long and courageous battle with cancer that spanned over 20 years. Throughout that time he never allowed this fight to slow him down. He was born on February 6, 1955, in Lima, Ohio, to Robert and Mabel (Hudson) Dillman. And on August 12, 1977, Howard married the love of his life, Jane (Herrmann) Dillman, in Bluffton, Ohio. He was a multifaceted man that received his Juris Doctorate Degree from Duke University and completed his undergraduate degree from Kent State University. Over the years, he had worked as an attorney, Hamburg Township Supervisor and Director of Lansing Community College Extension Centers. Howard had a passion for flying, which included small planes, helicopters, hot air balloons, model planes, and even designed a flying model car. He spent numerous hours fly fishing, remodeling homes and rebuilding cars. He also enjoyed spending time boating and traveling. But people will most likely remember him for using his diverse skill set to help anyone and everyone he interacted with. Howard will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Howard leaves behind his wife, Jane; son, Brandon (Kelly) Dillman and daughter, Angela Dillman. He is also survived by his siblings, Don (Gay Lynne) Dillman, Wanda Henderson, Rodney (Laura) Dillman, Kenny (Karen) Dillman, and Alan (Trace) Dillman. Howard is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Howard is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Mabel Dillman. Family and friends will gather on Saturday, January 2, 2015 from 12:00 to 2:00 PM with his Community Farewell to follow at 2:00 PM at Borek Jennings Funeral Home, Hamburg Chapel.
