John Dillon was one of the founder members of Traeth Bach Wildfowlers Association and a member of the Mawddach Wildfowlers for many years.

The family moved from Surrey to North Wales in 1970. In his early years, John did his national service, worked as a panel beater, mechanic and shepherd. He trained his own gundogs and was a breeder of spaniels and Labradors. He loved clay pigeon shooting and was a chairman of his local club.

He did rough shooting, went on driven pheasant and partridge days, and had a special passion for duck and geese. He was a true wildfowler and conservationist; a self-taught gunsmith with hundreds of guns repaired as a dealer and gunsmith working from home. He will be sadly missed by his wife Mary, son Stephen, as well as family and his many friends.
