Veteran of the Month
Avary Dimmock is VCC’s “Veteran of the Month” for July. Avary served in the U.S. Navy during World War II from 1943 to 1946.
Prior to entering the Navy, Avary was a student at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga. When he returned, he graduated from law school and was a practicing real estate attorney for more than 50 years. Married for 47 years, Avary has two children, one grandchild and one great grandchild.
In retirement, Avary enjoys a fairly low-key lifestyle. A highlight of every week is Thursday, when he and a friend have lunch at their favorite restaurant, Chick-Fil-A. This tradition has been going for more than five years. And in that amount of time, they have only missed three Thursday lunches.
Recently Avary turned 91. To mark the occasion, the employees decorated the restaurant with balloons and party hats. They also made his favorite milk shake, which is no longer on the menu. The local newspaper even covered the celebration.
Avary is grateful to VCC for the wonderful care and outstanding customer service the company provides. He also loves the attention he receives from his caregiver and the ability to remain living independently at home.
