Robert Lee Dillard of Burnsville, MN, a devoted Jehovah’s Witness and devoted husband of MSR Publisher Tracey Williams-Dillard, passed away on Saturday, December 19, 2020, at the age of 67.

He was preceded in death by his mother Azallee “Mae West” Dillard and father Orange Dillard; sister Alma Johnson (James); and brother John Dillard (Linda). He is survived by his wife Tracey Williams-Dillard; brother Kelly Dillard (Bernie) of Woodville, Wisconsin; daughters Chinita Dillard of Chicago, Illinois, Juanita Holman (Scott), Tracey Dillard of Burnsville, Minnesota, Leticia Alvarez (Manuel) of Apple Valley, Minnesota; and son Robert Dillard Jr. of St. Paul, Minnesota; seventeen grandchildren, and a host of family and friends. Robert was a great husband, father, and friend.

When he wasn’t working, he enjoyed spending quality time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. In the summer, he loved to go fishing at the cabin and grill his famous ribs on the back patio for all who came to visit. His smile and laugh were contagious, and he would light up any room. He will be missed dearly by
his family and friends.
