Randall Dixon

Dixon, Randall
47, of Oklahoma City, OK passed away on July 8, 2013 from complications of Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1). His kidneys failed due to diabetes and he was deathly ill, but received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor on October 29, 1991 which gave him over 21 years more life. Randall's last job was at General Dynamics, Scottsdale, AZ as Computer Systems Engineer. He courageously fought chronic illnesses for most of his life; but, no one ever witnessed him complain of the pain, because he knew that this was his temporary home and that he was going to heaven after he died. God promises his believers that they will dwell with him for eternity and will have new bodies. Isaiah 35:3-5 3 Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; 4 say to those with fearful hearts, "Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you." 5 Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Survivors include: his wife, Amy Dixon (of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma); his parents, Benjamin & Virginia Brent (of Prairie Grove); sister, Robyn Bell (of Goodyear, Arizona); brother, Richard Dixon (of Prairie Grove); brother & sister-in-law, Benjamin Jr. & Becky Brent and their son, Devan Brooks (of Newcastle, Oklahoma); niece, Jessica Bell, and her son, Christian Bell (of Goodyear, Arizona); and his assistance dog "Duke". Memorial scheduled for: Saturday, August 3rd, at 4:00 PM Crestview Baptist Church, 7715 S. Hiwassee Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73150. E-mail the family at: randamy@bigfoot.com
