Well-known Marlborough identity Jimma Dillon has died.

Details were not clear at this stage, but it is understood Dillon died in his sleep early on Thursday morning. 

The father of three girls, including Honor Carter, wife of All Black Dan Carter, Dillon was a Picton house and garden designer.

Speaking last week, Dillon had welcomed news that the Carters were expecting their first child. The couple married almost a year ago at Timara Lodge, near Blenheim, in a celebrity-studded event.

The Dillons are a large extended family, well-known in farming circles in Marlborough.

Dillon's daughter Honor tweeted earlier this afternoon "Devastated by the sudden loss of my amazing father. Such a talented, respected & widely loved man who will leave a huge hole in our lives :( "
