Obituary for Fred A. Dixon

Fred A. Dixon, 70, of Greenville, passed away surrounded by his family at home, on Sunday evening, May 12, 2019.

He was born in Yatesboro (Armstrong County), PA on June 28, 1948, to the late Albert and Dolly (Young) Dixon.

Fred worked at Hodge Foundry in Greenville and was a member of New Lebanon Community Church in Sandy Lake.

Even though he suffered from CMT, a neurological disorder similar to muscular dystrophy, he enjoyed painting, woodworking, and tinkering, especially improving things around the house that made them easier for him to use. He also enjoyed discussing old cars with his grandchildren.

Also surviving are: two daughters, Shana Oakes and her husband, Bill, and Kerry Weimer and her husband, Will, all of Greenville; seven grandchildren, Michael Oakes, Samantha Oakes and her fiancé, Colin Dickson, Ray Weimer, Nicklin Weimer, Gabriel Weimer, Sophia Oakes, and Jakob Weimer, all of Greenville; two sisters, Shirley Mellon of Colorado, and Edna E. Simmers and her companion, Paul Nicklin, of Greenville; two brothers, Frank Dixon and his wife, Esther, of Colorado, and Arthur Dixon and his wife, Judy, of Blacktown, PA.

The family will announce a celebration of life service at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to: Muscular Dystrophy Association PO Box 78960 , Phoenix, AZ, 85062 Messages of sympathy, stories, and photos can be shared at:
