He retired as a Lt. Col. from the Air Force. His wife, Betty, predeceased him as did a daughter Charlsie Dixon Hook.Uncle Cliff died of cancer. He was also predeceased by sisters Mary Elizabeth Dixon Arbuckle, her husband John Arbuckle, sister Ethelee Dixon Boyd and husband John Boyd, sister Emma Joe Dixon Hue, brother Joe Miller Dixon and Joe's daughter Judith Ann Dixon. Uncle Cliff is survived by a daughter and 4 grandchildren plus numerous greatgrandchildren and a niece. He was a wonderful uncle.Not a day goes by that I don't remember his patience and his smile. Miss you Uncle Cliff.I once asked him if he had named his plane (in WWII) and he said he was an old married man and that was for young guys. He enjoyed Egyptian archeology and history. He was a good cook.
His surviving daughter said he didn't have a middle name. Yes he did and no he didn't. His parents did not give him one. When he enlisted in the Air Force they insisted he had to have a middle name....their reasoning "everyone did". I think they gave him rather a hard time of it when he filled out any paperwork. He said he finally threw his hands in the air and gave them "David". That sounds just like my Uncle Cliff. He got the "long" census form several years before his death. He said he was so annoyed at all the personal information they wanted that he "made up the answers". He probably did to some of the questions. I threw my hands in the air and asked him if he realized what a knot it would be for a great or great great grandchild to try to verify this.His response was they shouldn't believe everything they read.
My Uncle Cliff was a gentleman in every sense of the word...trustworthy, reliable, responsible, a Rock of Gibralter..a soothing influence in any sea of storm. I never knew of him raising his voice. He didn't have to. When he said something I simply believed him. Rest in peace Uncle Cliff. You are missed.
