Notes for ELWYN GARARD DILLON: Jerry was a kind and gentle man. He had three children by a first marriage to Joan Cummings. They divorced and he moved in with his mother in Lakeville ,Mass. About a year after the divorce he was called to the Hingham PD to pick up the children who had been abandoned by thier mother. Jerry and his mother sought custody of the three children and raised them together. The children were Mareen Elizabeth, Sherri Susanne, Michael Howard.

The week before Christmas 2000 Jerry was dianosed with 4th stage lung cancer. The doctor told us the cancer was so far advanced that any treatment would be useless. We tried to give him the best Xmas we could figuring to make the last weeks of his life as comfortable as possible. He was given less than 4 months to live. January 7, 2001 Jerry had a major stroke at home and wasn't expected to live through the night but he fooled them all. He was transported to OakHill Nursing home where with the wonderful care provided he lived until May 7 2001. The stroke left Jerry w/o being able to speak, his right side was gone and, but his appitite was good until about a week or so before death. He enjoyed the visits from the grandchildren. Jerry smoked the adverage of 21/2 packs of cigaretts per day before the stroke. After the stroke I had the patch placed on him. He did fine but the craving never went away. My son Ron went to visit him and he tried to grag the cigaretts from Ron's pocket.
