Hugh M. Dimmery

MESA, Ariz. -Always living life large and each day to the fullest, Hugh Dimmery lived, loved, worked and played with infectious enthusiasm and exuberant energy. On March 14, 2006, Hugh Dimmery's time on earth with family and friends came to an end. Hugh and his wife Valli were married in 1969 and they have two special children -- Eric and Kristy, and four treasured grandchildren -- Shayna, Kayla Grace, Seth and Elianna. Hugh's son-in-law Mark Edwards and daughter-in-law Julie helped make the family complete. Time shared together as a family often included Hugh's parents-in-law, William and Tonia Ballard. Time with family and friends was always a celebration of love and life. Hugh was born in Columbia, South Carolina, on April 2, 1947, to Hubert and Irene Dimmery and was one of five children -- brother Terry Dimmery and sisters Lorraine Murphy, Karen Trunk, Elizabeth Krawczyk. Following a 20 year career in the U.S. Army, Hugh retired as a field grade officer and joined the Boeing Company, working for the last 18 years in management and executive positions supporting the Apache helicopter program and business development with both domestic and international customers. Always dedicated to getting the job done right, Hugh is highly regarded by friends and associates around the world. For those who knew Hugh in service, on the job, at home or on the golf course - honor, integrity and loyalty are words that define this gentleman's character. A gathering of friends will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 23, 2006, with the memorial service beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Mountain View Memorial Gardens Mortuary, 7900 East Main Street, Mesa, Ariz. In memory of Hugh, in lieu of flowers, and to realize his wish to provide for the continued education of his grandchildren, donations may be made to the 'Hugh Dimmery Memorial Fund' through Bank of America at 5807 East McKellips Road, Mesa, AZ 85215. Hugh's family has a sincere desire to personally thank each individual that chooses to give to the memorial fund, and because the financial institution has no mechanism to provide donor information, you may elect to bring your gift to the service or to include it in the collection of cards and written greetings being gathered through Mike Burke, The Boeing Company, 5000 East McDowell Road, Mail Code: M510-A383, Mesa, AZ 85215.
