In memory of
James Lincoln Dillon
James Lincoln Dillon, April 19, 1939 - October 4, 2020. James Lincoln Dillon was born April 19, 1939, in San Francisco and died October 4, 2020, in Baton Rouge, after a valiant battle with cancer. He graduated from Riordan High School in 1957, attended San Francisco State College, and obtained his law degree from the University of San Francisco Law School. He was admitted to the California Bar in January 1966 and began his career at O'Connor, Cohn, Moran, and Lynch. Jim went on to become a named partner of O'Connor, Cohn, Dillon and Barr. He was an avid golfer and became a member of the Olympic Club and The Country Club of Louisiana. He was a passionate 49er fan and enjoyed spending time with his friends at epic tailgate parties. Jim was a kind, loving man who enhanced the lives of all. He loved his family and his two brothers sought out his guidance whenever they encountered problems. He was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. He was a special person and his memory will remain with us all forever. After the passing of his first wife, Anne Hickok, he met, fell in love, and married Marianna Keller Dillon. They spent their retirement years traveling around the world with family and friends, enjoying wine, cruising, and cultural activities. After a devastating fire near their home in Santa Rosa, they moved to Louisiana to be near Marianna's family. He is survived by his wife, Marianna, his children Jenny, James (Rachel), and Tom; his stepdaughter Katrina Lambert (Chip), and grandchildren Chase, Olivia, Keller, Juliette, KP, Parker, and Emily; his brothers George (Judy) and John Patrick (Lani), as well as numerous extended family members. Because of the pandemic, we hope to all gather someday soon to enjoy good food, drinks, and trade wonderful stories about this amazing man. In lieu of funeral services and flowers you may wish to donate, in Jim's honor, to a charity of your choice.
