DILLENDER -- John K. Dillender. After 62 years of serving the Lord, John K. Dillender went to be with our Father on April 7, 2008. John lived his life committed to the commands of Christ in Matt. 22:37-39. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and love your neighbor as yourself." He began his life in a strong Christian home. Born to Jack and Helen Dillender, they raised him to honor and trust God. Later joined by his only brother Dick Dillender, their family has been committed to making an impact for the Kingdom of God. Christ led John to love and marry Joy Dillender and they had two sons, Ken and Rick Dillender. While we will always cherish the impact that John has made in our family, the impact that he has had on the world will forever be felt and missed. He was committed to serving others. John served as a medic during the Vietnam war, worked with heart patients when he got home, owned his own ambulance service, worked for the fire department and the police department, was a house parent for two years for the New Mexico Baptist Children's Home, served as Minister of Music/Education for numerous churches in El Paso, TX, Rodeo Road Baptist Church in Santa Fe, NM, Highland Baptist Church Roswell, NM, and was currently serving at Bernalillo First Baptist Church in Bernalillo NM. He was ordained on February 26, 1996 and served as Pastor for Loving Baptist Church, Loving NM, for five years. He served as State Director of Disaster Relief for the state of New Mexico and the National Incident Command Center, helping others during disasters such as Katrina in Louisiana, Hatch NM floods, fires in San Diego CA, ice storms in Oklahoma City, and many others. No matter where Jesus called John, he was prepared to go. John lived his life focused on Acts 1:8 "You will receive power when the Spirit comes upon you and you will be My witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the world" and the Great Commission. John allowed Christ to use him and the impact of his actions will be felt for generations. We thank our Father in Heaven for the tenderness, mercy, grace, counsel, love, and hope that he has shared with us through this tender soul. John's legacy is lived out through his family that is left to serve in his place. For Helen, Dick, Joy, Ken, Rick and all of our families, we will serve the Lord. We honor John's memory.
