Delton Arthur Dixon was born, October 13, 1939, in Mason City, Iowa, the son of Arthur and Gladys Dixon. He graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1958. He was an avid supporter of FFA, as he was a proud participant in his school years. On November 12, 1960, he was united in marriage to LeAnn Torkelson in Forest City, Iowa. To this union three children were born: Sara, Jeffrey and Kari.

Delton's passion was farming. You would always find him in a combine in the fall; watching the augers run in his later years, and showing his grandchildren how to farm. In his free time, Delton enjoyed boating and fishing. Family memories include many vacations with friends and family throughout the United States. Later in his life, he and LeAnn learned to dance and spent their winters in Texas. Delton was a lifelong member of Wesley United Methodist Church in Mason City. He became known as the "Miracle Man" to his family after beating necrotizing pancreatitis in 2012.

Delton is survived by his wife, LeAnn; daughters, Sara (Todd) Broers, Kari (Jeremy) McMannes; son, Jeff (Michelle) Dixon; grandchildren, Jenna Young, Blaine Broers, Austin (Maren) McMannes, Connor McMannes, Garrett Broers, Jadon Dixon, Mara Dixon, and Hannah Dixon; and great-grandson James. Delton was preceded in death by his parents and grandson, Justin.

Arrangements are with Major Erickson Funeral Home & Crematory, 111 N. Pennsylvania Avenue, Mason City, Iowa 50401, 641-423-0924,
