Obituary For John Edward Dixon

Greetings Metropolitan Family,

Please continue to keep Dr. Dorothy Clowers and Family lifted in your prayers in the passing of her 90 year old uncle, Mr. John Edward Dixon.

Mr. John E. Dixon age 86 was welcomed into this world on February 27, 1936, by his overjoyed parents, the late Epsy Mae and Peter Dixon in Greenfield, Mississippi. He was proceeded in death by his parents, wife Barbara Dixon, seven (7) siblings and two (2) children, Sandra Dixon and Douglas Melvin.

One of John’s greatest legacies in his life was the birth of his children. He loved and prayed continuously for each one by name. This same love for his children carried over to his grandchildren. His prayer and desire were that all his children, grandchildren and following, would have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. This desire was so strong that he made it his mission to Baptize his grandchildren and that he whole heartedly succeeded.

Brother John was a Deacon at Guiding Light M. B. Church, where he served faithfully under the leadership of Pastor James Dixon, until he was summoned home.

Brother John was a great and God-fearing man a faithful husband, a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew and friend. He would often say, “When I die, I’m going upstairs, because that man downstairs got problems”. He is going to truly be missed. Until we meet again, develop and keep your walk with Christ.

Brother Tohn Edward Dixon is survived by his children: Ray Steve Mims, Victor (Betty) Dixon, Toni (Joe) Butler, Funches (Sharese) Dixon, Antonio (Nicole) Carr, Ossy (Shannon) Dixon, Makesha (James) Dixon-Dukes, Yahtay Johnson, Tavosha Johnson and Tirashun Dixon.
