On November 3, 2010, we lost a dear friend, family member and colleague with the sudden passing of Joe Dimmick. A dedicated family man, Joe was active in his church and well respected in the insurance community. With his unique sense of humor and general compassion for people, Joe always showed a sincere interest in each individual’s well-being as he made his “rounds among those he came in contact with. No matter what your position in life, Joe managed to make everyone feel as if they were a valued member of the team.
Joe loved playing golf and boasting of his booming drives. He looked forward to his many golf and fishing trips with family and friends, and would send photos of his prize catches and golf scorecard from his mobile phone.
Joe was in the insurance industry for over 30 years and active in his church community in many ways. He touched many lives and will forever be fondly remembered for that ever-present gap-toothed smile, his constant words of encouragement, those infamous Ball State Cardinals, and his running commentary on MSU football or basketball. But mostly he will be remembered by his friends and loved ones as a caring, compassionate individual who loved life and wanted everyone he came in contact with to share in that wonderful experience.
In order to keep Joe’s memory alive, The Joe Dimmick Memorial Foundation, Inc. has been formed in his honor. The mission of this non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization is to assist in the success of insurance students by awarding scholarship aid to those majoring in an insurance program at a Michigan four-year college or university. In addition, a donation will be made in Joe’s honor to a local non-profit community organization.
