Dixon, Robert G. "Bob" - Griggsville  
Robert Gene "Bob" Dixon, 75, of rural Griggsville, passed away Tuesday morning, May 17, 2016, at Blessing Hospital in Quincy. He was born Aug. 28, 1940, in Sinclair, to Roy and Eliza Elizabeth "Betty" Mayes Dixon, and grew up on various farms around Morgan County. He married Mary Lou Whitaker on June 12, 1964, at Woodland Church near Fishhook, and she survives. Bob enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1957 after attending Jacksonville High School, and later obtained his GED while in the Air Force. He had a knack for mechanical work and enjoyed his job as an aircraft mechanic on the various Air Force aircraft of the 1950s and 1960s. He was part of the Strategic Air Command and rose to the rank of staff sergeant in his 10 years of service. He enjoyed seeing new places, and the Air Force afforded him that opportunity. He was stationed at multiple air bases in the United States, and overseas to Japan, the Philippines, Greenland and Iceland. After Bob and Mary Lou married, they looked for ways to get closer to her Pike County home, so he took a post as an aircraft mechanic instructor at Chanute Air Force base in Rantoul. He separated from the Air Force in 1967 with an honorable discharge and always remembered his time in the service fondly. Bob and Mary Lou spent the last 49 of their almost 52 years of marriage as Pike County residents, specifically in Maysville. After returning to civilian life, Bob used his exceptional mechanical skills in several jobs before realizing his true passion of working on clocks and watches, his personal favorite being antique pocket watches. He spent the last 25 years working in his clock shop. Many Pike County residents brought their timepieces to Dixon Clock Repair to be fixed up, and there wasn't much he couldn't fix. What Bob enjoyed most was spending time with his family, as they always came first with him. Nothing brought him greater joy than when the family gathered together and he was surrounded by their love and laughter. He was a long-time member of Woodland Church. He enjoyed teaching Sunday school for more than 30 years, along with serving as treasurer and deacon. This was at the same church where he started his wedded life with his best friend and favorite person in the world, Mary Lou. In addition to his wife, he is also survived by two children, Clay (Nancy) Dixon of Petersburg and Carol (Richard) Reese of Springfield; two grandchildren, Zachary and Daniel Dixon; one sister, Mary Etta Fox; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Roy "Sonny" and Frank Dixon. SERVICES: 9:30 a.m. Monday, May 23, at Airsman-Hires Funeral Chapel in Griggsville. Interment will be in Woodland Cemetery. VISITATION: 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 22, at the chapel. MEMORIALS: Memorials are suggested to Woodland Church. ARRANGEMENTS: Airsman-Hires Funeral Chapel in Griggsville. WEBSITE: airsmanhires.com . Condolences may be expressed online at whig.com .
