All of us at the City of The Colony wish to share our heartfelt condolences with the family and friends of former Mayor John Dillard, who passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2023.
We also wish to express our sincere gratitude for his many years of dedicated service to this community. The Colony would not be what it is today without former Mayor Dillard's hard work and leadership.
Prior to serving six years as The Colony Mayor (2003-2009), Dillard was the Place 5 City Council member for a decade (1992-2002). He was also a founding member of The Colony Economic Development Corp., the Windhaven Peninsula Development Committee, and the HWY 121 Task Force; in addition to serving in many other government and civic organizations.
