January 20, 1955 - September 27, 2016
Robert J. Dixon, 61 of Lafayette passed away on Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at his home after an extended illness. A lifelong resident of Lafayette, he was born January 20, 1955, the second son of Thomas L. and Marian L. Dixon. He leaves behind to cherish, and sometimes even laugh and shake their heads in his memory: siblings, Tom Jr. (Jody), Starla Dixon- Robinson, Tim Dixon (Deb Ward), and Susan Dixon-Foster (John). Nieces and nephews: Kristine Dixon (Matt Dalton), Tom Dixon (Kara Kennedy), Damon Robinson, Shawn Robinson (Marsha Wiseman), Jacob Robinson, Nichelle Timmons (Matt), Chris Ward, Geoff Foster (Steph), and Dillon Foster. Great nieces and nephews: Preston Dixon, Kaylin Gill, Alexis Timmons, Madeline and Sam Dalton, Naomi and Isaac Robinson, and Molly Hackmann. He is also survived by several cousins. Lastly, he leaves behind his constant companion and special little friend, his dog Max. Robert was preceded in death by his parents Thomas Sr. in 1991 and Marian in 2009. Educated in the Lafayette school system, Robert was a hard worker, working in construction his entire adult life. He worked for Davis Construction in the 1970s, Dixon Construction in the 1980s through the 1990s, and a short time at Merkel Excavating until poor health forced him to retire in 2001. Known for his kindness, generosity, quick wit, loyalty, and honesty, Robert loved nothing more than being with his family. He had a special bond with his nephews, teaching them how to repair cars and complete home improvement projects when they were young; skills they still use to this day. He had an ingenious way of thinking; there was nothing he couldn’t fix given a few screws and some black electrical tape. In keeping with Robert’s wishes, there will be no service. Instead, he would want you to pay it forward in his memory by helping out someone in need.
