During his decades of service, he founded the HACC Psychology Lab and was advisor to many student organizations, including the Mosaico-Latino, Outdoor, Canoe, and Psychology Clubs. He also worked with the Cuban Interest Section of the Swiss Embassy to design a collaborative HACC course and improve international relations. Cliff was passionately involved in many community organizations and initiatives.

Dorotha Emily Diehlman Keene b.20Jun1912 Findlay Ohio d. 9May2012 Seattle, Washington
Dorotha Emily Diehlman Keene lapsed peacefully into eternal sleep on May 9th, 2012, just several weeks shy of her 100th birthday. She was born in Findlay, Ohio on 6/20/1912 to Gladys and Clarence Diehlman. After graduating from high school, Dottie attended Ohio Wesleyan University majoring in education and subsequently completing requirements for her Bachelor of Science Degree. From there, she went on to obtain a Masters Degree in education from the University of Wisconsin. Her academic achievements included admission to Delta Kappa Gamma, a professional honorary society of women educators. Throughout her adult life, she served that organization
in a variety of different administrative capacities.
Dottie was an avid sportsperson. Despite growing up in an era of limited athletic opportunities for women, she participated and excelled in a wide range of sporting endeavors, including basketball, golf, swimming and tennis. Even in her eighties, it was not unusual to witness her volleying a tennis ball or stalking a golf ball at Geenlake Pitch and Putt. Her many interests also included music. She enjoyed "tickling the ivories" and played an adequate piano but relished drawing a bow across the strings of her beloved cello above all else. For many years, she was able to express her attachment to that instrument as a regular performer in the Seattle Senior Orchestra.
Dottie was a bonifide member of that ever-dwinding race known as the "Greatest Generation". It is comprised of people who have always felt immense pride in being citizens of the greatest nation on Earth despite living through the grinding hardships of the Great Depression. They risked and many forfeited their lives stamping out tyranny and oppression in two World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. It was they who created the precursory conditions that ultimately spawned today's technological revolution. We, the progeny of that generation, will forever be indebted to those forebearers for the prosperity and freedoms we take for granted today.
Dottie was preceded in death by her loving husband of 41 years, Leslie Keene. For over a decade and a half following her marriage in 1947, she eschewed the opportunity to continue an exemplary career as an educator in favor of being a stay-at-home mom to her two children, Karen Driver and David Keene. They and their families will sorely miss Grandma's tireless good humor, adventurous spirit and unflagging compassion for her fellow man.

Emil Dihlmann b. 6Sep1916 d. 27Jun2013
SHUTESBURY - Emil Dihlmann died Thursday, June 27, 2013, at the Soldiers Home in Holyoke.
Emil was born Sept. 6, 1916, in Shutesbury. The fifth of eight children, he was the son of Fannia (Rehorka) and Hermann Dihlmann.
He attended the one-room schoolhouse in Shutesbury and graduated from Amherst Regional High School.
His first job was driving a 12 ton truck during the construction of the Quabbin Reservoir. He then worked for the Threadwell Tap & Die in Greenfield, before the start of the war.
Emil was a World War II veteran and served in the Army Air Corps 350th Bombardment Squadron as a radio operator on a B-17 bomber based in Alconbury, England. He flew many missions over Europe.
After the war he settled in Greenfield where he met his wife Leona (Beaulac) who died in 1969. They had three children, Robert, Diane and Emily.
Emil was a self-employed carpenter and, as well as building four houses, he also worked for several general contractors in the area, including working on homes in Historic Deerfield. He also was a carpentry teacher for many years at Greenfield Vocational High School and Arms Academy in Shelburne Falls.
Later, he moved back to Shutesbury where he lived with his second wife Dorothy Bradley and his adopted daughter Andrea. During this period in his life, Emil was employed at the University of Massachusetts. He worked in the physical plant as a carpenter and estimator. He retired from the University at the age of 70.
After retiring, he decided to sit back, not have a daily schedule, and do the things that interested him and gave him pleasure; spending time with his children, fishing, working on carpentry projects and other projects that sparked his curiosity.

Emil Dihlmann b. d.27Jun2013
RAF ALCONBURY, United Kingdom - For many members of the military, there is that one base or one assignment you really enjoy or will remember for the rest of your life - for retired Tech. Sgt. Emil Dihlmann, that place was in the United Kingdom at RAF Alconbury.
Dihlmann enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps when he was 25 years old and served as a radio operator on the B-17 Flying Fortress with the 350th Bombardment Squadron, under the VIII Bomber Command and Eighth Air Force, from 1943 to 1945. His on-plane duties included working transmitting and receiving equipment in the B-17, making minor repairs and operating the 50-caliber machine gun while in combat.
"He didn't really start talking about his experiences in the war until the 1990s," said Emily Lewney, Dihlmann's daughter, who currently lives in Cambridge, U.K. "I think probably like lots of soldiers, he must have felt it really painful for him to talk about when he came back. He wasn't a man that communicated his feelings, but then I don't think lots of men of that generation probably did, but then they also probably had a lot that they were carrying, as well.
"I watched 'Memphis Belle' one day with my husband Richard and until then I didn't really realize just how hard it must have been to be in a war, what military members put themselves through and the commitment they give to their country; then I realized dad had been through that." said Lewney. "So, I finally began asking him questions and I think by then he was ready to start talking a little bit about some of the stories - not necessarily about the all of the hard ones, but he spoke with such great calmness about his time in England and at RAF Alconbury. He told lots of funny stories, like going into London and being told there was a Piccadilly Circus there and looking for the circus and having a policeman say, 'You're standing in it, Mate!'"
Dihlmann, who was the fifth of seven children, passed away June 27 at the soldier's home in Holyoke, Mass.
"We were just so impressed with the care dad had received there and how they treated him like he was part of the family and then I started to realize that this had been such an important part of dad's life," said Lewney. "So, when we had the memorial service in August, I asked if I could take some of dad's ashes back to England and bring them to RAF Alconbury where he had been based during World War II."
On Oct. 26, Lewney and her husband, their children, Sarah and Chris, and Chris' wife, Emma, visited RAF Alconbury to spread some of Dihlmann's ashes at the base that had meant so much to her father.
"He really loved his time at RAF Alconbury," said Lewney. "I thought it would be nice to bring back some of his ashes to the place that had been such an important part of his life and that probably helped mold a lot of whom he was and who he became in his adult life. It was also a chance for our son, who wasn't able to attend the funeral to feel like he had, had a way to say goodbye to his grandfather as well."
The service was held at the base flagpoles where Capt. Tim Warf, 423rd Air Base Group chaplain, said a prayer under the flags that were flying at half-staff in honor of Dihlmann. The family then, one by one, walked to the base of the flagpoles, released some of the ashes and paused to reflect on the moment.
"We were all so touched with the service," said Lewney. "It really meant a lot to us to have that service with the chaplain and commander; we were really bowled over with the flags being at half-staff on behalf of our dad. We were just so touched by it all, the service, the prayers and it has meant an awful, awful lot to us. It sort of brought back dad's memory to us in a very special way."

Robert "Bob" Dillman, President East Stroudsburg University, b. 30Jun1941 Brooklyn, NY d. 25Nov2014 Lewes, PA
Robert (Bob) John Dillman, 73, of Lewes, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, at Beebe Healthcare in Lewes. He was born June 30, 1941, in Brooklyn, N.Y., son of the late George and Emma (Drago) Dillman.
Mr. Dillman received his PhD from Clark University in Massachusetts, a master's degree from Penn State University and his undergraduate degree from New Paltz State University of New York.
He began an extensive career in education in 1963. Bob's first position was as a high school teacher in the Connetquot Long Island School District. He then moved to Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts as a geography and earth science professor, and subsequently became vice president of academic affairs and acting president there. His career would then turn to Fairmont State University in Fairmont, W.Va. where he served as president. Bob concluded his academic career at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania where he served as president for 16 years. What distinguished Bob's career as an educator was the fact that he never lost sight of his primary motivation: providing students with the best environment and education to prepare them for life. Even when he served as university president, he continued to teach classes at the undergraduate level. He then retired from East Stroudsburg University and relocated to the Lewes area.
Even in retirement, Bob's motivation to serve his community carried on. He was an active member of the Lehigh Valley Hospital board, PAASHE Science Center Wallops Island, and the Lewes Planning Commission.
Bob's commitment to his profession was only exceeded by his love and dedication to his family and friends. He was a husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and friend without par. His life was anchored in his strong religious faith, impeccable integrity, honesty, enthusiasm for life, and commitment to go above and beyond to help those in need. An exceptional athlete in his youth, playing basketball, baseball and soccer for New Paltz State University, he maintained a regimen of daily fitness throughout life. Simply put, Bob was a consummate gentleman who will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Bob is survived by his loving bride of over 50 years, Roseann (Morris); four children, Deirdre and her husband John Buckley of Wilmington, John Dillman and his wife Melissa of Gilbert, Ariz., Siobhan and her husband Mark Tarley of Morgantown, W.Va. and James Dillman and his wife Shannon of Lyon, France; 10 grandchildren; and one brother, James and his wife Loretta of Litchfield, Conn.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 2, at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church, 152 Tulip Drive, Lewes. Friends may visit Monday, Dec. 1, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Atkins-Lodge Chapel, 16961 Kings Highway, Lewes. Interment will be private.

Brandon Dillman b. d. 28Aug2015 Redding, CA
REDDING, Calif. - On Friday afternoon, 28-year-old Brandon Dillman died in a motorcycle accident at Churn Creek Road and Hartnell Avenue. His mother, Kelley McMichael, said her son was just heading to the store to pick up muffins and milk for the family and was going to be back in 10 minutes. "And I'm waiting and I'm waiting and I started calling his cellphone and texting his phone, and it ended up an hour and a half later," she explained. "In my gut, I knew something was wrong." McMichael called the hospital and was told the news, her son was being taken to the coroner's office. "It's devastating, no parent should ever have to go through this," McMichael explained. "It's the worst pain I've ever been through and it makes you feel like you are going to die of a broken heart." Brian Dillman, Brandon Dillman's older brother, said he was in shock and got sick when he found out. "It was a friend that told me Brandon's been in a motorcycle wreck and he's at the coroner's office. I said, you mean the hospital, and she said no the coroner's office and I just got weak and dropped my phone on the floor, and pretty much fell down and started crying," Brian Dillman said. Dillman's wife, Alicia Eller-Dillman, was in North Dakota when she heard the news. She said he left behind three sons, all under the age of 10. "It breaks my heart they won't be able to have their daddy back," she stated. Dillman mentioned in the last few days he has gone to the area his brother was killed. "I just sat out on the curb... I'm just trying to digest it all I guess... I just don't know why, why did it have to happen," Dillman explained. On Sunday, family and friends held a vigil to remember a loving father, son, and brother. "It's amazing, it was amazing.... It was posted on there, wasn't even a day that people were able to find our about it, it was a good turn out," Dillman said. "I didn't want to say good by like this, but we are going to watch over your kids and we are going to take care of your boys all of us," McMichael said.
