Freddie Dixon Obituary

Freddie Roy Dixon, a resident of Pansey, died Saturday, February 10, 2024 at his residence. He was 92.

Mr. Dixon was born in Barbour County, Alabama to the late Sandy Thomas “Bud” and Abbie Lee Nora Mitchell Dixon. He was a veteran of the Korean War and worked in the telephone industry for over 50 years before his retirement. He was a faithful member of Union Springs Free Will Baptist Church in Pansey, Alabama. In his retirement, he enjoyed yard work, the great outdoors and being with his loving wife of 73 years. He also enjoyed having fun, especially with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mr. Dixon always had a warm smile to give and a gentle spirit to share. He was born into a large family of 14, whom he loved dearly. He learned early the value of hard work and faithfulness that he passed down to his children. He never gave up on anything he put his hand to. Although he will be greatly missed, he leaves wonderful memories to be cherished and shared for his family and friends.
