Lawrence Eugene Dixon
September 15, 1943 - October 13, 2016
Lawrence Eugene Dixon, following a courageous battle with cancer, passed away at home Thursday, October 13, 2016, surrounded by his loving wife, father, brother, children, son -in-law, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren. Lawrence was born in Council, Idaho, on September 15, 1943 to James M. and Myrtle Dixon.
Lawrence attended Meadows Valley Schools and graduated in 1961. He married Sharon L. Myers June 17, 1961. With this union four children were added; Richard, Lloyd, Ruth and Duane. Lawrence and Sharon were soul mates and did everything together. Their love for one another was obvious.
Lawrence worked at the Shell Service Station in New Meadows all through high school. In 1962, he went to work for JI Morgan, Inc., where he worked until he retired in 2007. Lawrence was a hardworking man. He loved his family, whether they were blood or not, they were family. Lawrence loved to camp, fish, hunt, snowmobile and play cards, but most of all spend time with his family. His pride and joy was his offspring. Nothing made him smile bigger than seeing his grandbabies and great-Grandbabies.
Lawrence is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Sharon of Caldwell; his father, James M Dixon, Jr. and brother, Jim Dixon both of Caldwell; his sons, Richard of Caldwell, Lloyd (Polly) of Lawton, OK, Duane (Kassie) of Meridian and his Queen B-only daughter-Ruth (Robert) of Caldwell; 15 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, his "adopted" children, John-John, Jerri Lynn (Eller) and Bryan Dean Malvich; and numerous other extended family members, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Myrtle; his grandparents; and nephew, Keith Dixon.
Lawrence never knew a stranger and had the biggest heart of anyone. He will be missed but remembered by many. His smile would light up a room.
A Celebration of Lawrence's Life will be held at the Phipps-Watson American Legion Community Hall in Marsing on Saturday, November 26th from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. A meal will be included. Condolence may be shared with the family at www.dakanfuneralchapel.com.
