Costa Dillon Retiring at 35 Years
The superintendent of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is turning in his paddles, saying 35 years on the job is enough.
Constantine ‘Costa’ Dillon has sent an email to his associates announcing his retirement from the National Park Service after three-and-a-half decades, including the past six years at Indiana Dunes.
The 59-year-old Dillon has worked at a dozen national parks and monuments, starting as a ranger at Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia.
Before joining the Park Service, Dillon created a feature film, the cult classic “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes,” which led to three sequels and a cartoon.
