Kenneth G. Dillman Dies


Yonkers, NY --- Kenneth G. "Captain Kenny" Dillman, 48, died Jan. 14, 2015, after a brief illness.

A native of Hempstead, Long Island, Mr. Dillman was a professional caretaker at Roosevelt and Yonkers Raceway for his entire adult life, first for trainer John Brennan and later for trainer Mike Sorrentino Jr.

Such was his level of competence and work ethic that he was named the Standardbred Owners Association's Caretaker of the Year in 1992.

He was well liked by everyone he came in contact with, both on and off the track. In the 1990s, SOA President Joe Faraldo named a horse Captain Kenny in his honor.

He is survived by his daughter, Amelia Faithe (Amy). He was preceded in death by his wife, Petra, in 2004.

A viewing will be held on Saturday (Jan. 17) from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. (religious service at 8:30 p.m.) at Flower Funeral Home, 714 Yonkers Avenue, Yonkers, N.Y. Burial is private.
