Linda Ann Dillon

August 27, 1952 — March 1, 2024


Linda Ann (McCawley) Dillon passed away on March 1, 2024, following a sudden illness. Linda was loving, funny and an absolute hell-raiser throughout her seven decades on earth. Under her tough, no-nonsense exterior, Linda had a tender and very generous heart.  She was ‘a real trip’ to everyone that met her, and a rock to those who knew her best. 

Born on August 27, 1952, Linda grew up in Montgomery County and graduated from Winston Churchill High School. As a young woman, she lived a life full of wild stories from her experiences as a frequent concert goer, beauty school drop-out, cab driver in Washington D.C., and that one time she got bailed out of jail by her friend, Stevie Ray Vaughn. In 1993, Linda and her husband Matt started Dillon Lightning Protection. Linda served as President of DLP at the time of her passing. 

Linda loved the beach, antiquing, home renovation, and motorcycles. She made legendary fried chicken. She was an avid fan of the Middletown Knights JV football team and rarely missed a game. Linda was a frequent sponsor of competitors from Bowerhouse MMA in Frederick, MD. She was a lifelong fan of Bethesda blues band The Nighthawks and was a producer on the 2016 documentary Nighthawks on the Blue Highway. She loved horses - but hated a horse’s ass.

Linda is predeceased by her parents, her husband Matthew Dillon, and her French bulldog, Mickey. Linda is survived by her sister, Ellen McCawley; her three sons; Robert McFadden (Jinnah) of Seattle, WA, James Dillon (Allison) of New Market, MD, and Christopher Dillon (Abby) of Myersville, MD; grandchildren Finley, Mathilde, Reese, and Ruby; her long-time companion Stephan Minovich, his sons Dalton and Cole, and many other caring relatives.

A small celebration of life ceremony will be held in Spring. In lieu of flowers, the Dillon family requests that donations be made in her honor to the Middletown High School Football Program by donating here, or to the Seattle Girl’s Choir Donate – Seattle Girls Choir.
