November 11, 1922 — February 5, 2018
William Harley Dimick, 95, of Sweet Home passed away surrounded by his wife Bonnie of 71 years and loving family.
He was born in Aurora to Wiley Elven and May Augusta (Yoder) Dimick.
He served in the United States Army Air Force medical unit during World War II. He served in Normandy, Northern France, Ardennes and England.
William lived in Oregon his entire life. He had a logging career working with Duncan and Moore Logging and Rice Logging.
He enjoyed watching the news and sports. His favorite teams were the Seahawks, Mariners and Trailblazers. He loved sports and betting quarters with his kids.
Bill enjoyed his grandchildren visiting and liked listening to what they had been up to. He enjoyed playing checkers with his granddaughter Amber (I think he let her win most of the time). He also loved our big family get-togethers for all occasions and seeing the little ones running around the house.
William is survived by his wife Bonnie of Sweet Home; sons, Lester (Diana), Randy, Jack Dimick all of Sweet Home, Rick (Tammy) Dimick of Jefferson, and Mark Dimick of Corvallis; daughters, Linda Dimick of Montana, Shirley Austin of Brownsville, Jani (Bob) Tydings of New York, Eileen (Dennis) Olson of California, Jan (Rick) Holder of Sweet Home, Julie Lafayette of Gervais, and Tammy (Jonathen) Lorenzen of Eugene; brothers, Shorty and Dick; sister-in-law, Emmy, all of Sweet Home; 25 grandchildren; 39 great-grandchildren; three-great-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by son Harley (Danny); parents, Wiley Elven and May Agusta Dimick; brothers, George, Chauncy, Rex (Scotty) and Harry; and sisters, Dorothy, Betty and Mary.
We will all miss you so much.
Till we meet again.
