****IN LOVING MEMORY OF****
Calvin Bruce Dixson, son of Charles and Kathryn Dixson, was born December 16, 1953, in Centerville, Iowa. He passed away Tuesday, October 20, 2009, at the age of 55.
Calvin attended Lucas elementary then continued to Chariton schools and graduated from Chariton High School in 1972. On August 16, 1975, he married his long-time sweetheart, Teresa Wright. They lived in Woodburn for two years before buying their first house in Lucas. They've lived there for 32 years where they raised two sons and made many memories with their four grandchildren.
In his early years, he was Mayor of Lucas for 10 years and assistant fire chief, while also working at Jimmy Dean for 20 years. He was a truck driver for 17 years and spent the last 12 years at SMX. Calvin was the type of person who would give you the shirt off his back.
He enjoyed the outdoors. In the summer the family lived at the lake, fishing, skiing, and tubing. Calvin loved spending time with his family. He also enjoyed hunting and taking his kids out on four-wheelers. Later in life as the grandkids arrived, he enjoyed teaching them outdoor experiences. He taught them how to shoot a gun and to be responsible in the activities they were participating in. He enjoyed every minute of it.
Calvin lived a modest life and material possessions were of no value to him. The times, experiences and memories that he shared with his loving wife, children, and grandchildren made him feel like the richest man in the world.
Calvin was preceded in death by his father, Charles Dixson; in-laws, Kermit and Irene Wright; and great-nephew, Chance Frisby.
He is survived by his wife, Teresa; sons, Michael (Leanne) and Steven (Carma); grandchildren Gavin, Chase, Degin, and Shailey; mother Kathryn; siblings Carmen, Cheryl, Nancy (Al), Steven (Shari), along with many nieces, nephews, and friends.
He will be loved and remembered always in our hearts.
