American Veteran 04

Thurmon Dillow

February 9, 1943 ~ July 20, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old



Thurmon Dillow, a proud veteran of the United States Air Force was born February 9, 1943, in Logan, WV, to the late Steve and Marie Dillow. He was known to his family and friends as “Bud” or “Buddy.”

He entered service after high school and following his discharge, he moved to Michigan and worked for General Motors. He married the love of his life, Drema Gore Dillow in 1966 and together they made their life in Michigan returning to his home state, West Virginia, in 1989 on retirement from General Motors.  He left this world to be with the love of his life and soul mate on July 20, 2023, at the age of 80 years.

In addition to his parents and loving wife, he was preceded in death by his brother, Joe Dillow; and sister, Judy (Dillow) Ward. 

He was a loving, devoted father to Lisa (Larry) Dennison and Ted Dillow and a proud grandfather to the lights of his life: Jordan, Sydney, and Brandon Dennison.  He was a loving brother to Frances Browning Pack (Chester), Doug (Joyce) Dillow, and Sandy (Frank) Workman.  He also leaves behind five special sisters-in-law, Rosalie Machado, Andra Lloyd, Susan Muncey, Jerri Amburgey, and Terri Nelson and many nieces and nephews from both sides whom he loved dearly. 

He was an active member of United Baptist Church in Garden City, Michigan, and Fellowship Baptist Church in Barboursville, WV.  He spent countless hours volunteering his time and talents wherever he could to honor the Lord, whom he loved and served with his whole heart.  He also loved woodworking and fishing, but what he enjoyed most was spending time with his grandchildren. 

He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
