Founders of Heritage Memorial Services
Founders of Dilday Brothers Funeral Directors
Linda and I were both born and raised in Long Beach, California. I moved to Huntington Beach in July 1968 upon starting of Dilday Brothers Funeral Directors with my brother, R. Burr Dilday, and Linda followed after our wedding in September of 1968. I had started working at my family's mortuary, Dilday Family Funeral Directors, when I was about 14 years old. After graduating from high school, I attended the Los Angeles College of Mortuary Science and graduated in 1965 as a Licensed Embalmer and Funeral Director.My wife Linda is a Registered Nurse and has worked at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Huntington Intercommunity Hospital and Fountain Valley Regional Hospital over the last 43 years. She is currently retired as an RN but works many hours as a volunteer with Children's Memorial Hospital Auxiliary at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.We have four grown children, Jason Dilday, Tamara Gilbert, Nicole Cohen and Shannon Dilday, along with two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law, and ten wonderful grandchildren ages one, two, three, nine, ten,11, 12, 14, 16 and 18. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family and to have them all with a two-hour radius of us. Over the past 47 years I have belonged to the Huntington Beach Elks, the Huntington Beach Exchange Club, Sts. Simon and Jude Catholic Church, St. Bonaventure Catholic Church, Long Beach Scottish Rite, Long Beach York Rite, Masonic Lodge, El Bekal Shrine, Long Beach Police Motor Patrol, International City Club, Southern California Tuna Club,Greeters, the Royal Order of Jesters and the Long Beach Yacht Club.We have worked very hard since the beginning of Dilday Brothers to serve the families of Huntington Beach and the surrounding cities in their time of need. Linda and I love the city of Huntington Beach, which has been our home for over 47 years and the city that our children were raised in. It is a part of us that can never be taken away.
