My dad used to always say “Tell me a story” But let me tell you a story about my dad’s life. He lived in the present, every day was a gift, and he truly felt he lived a fulfilling life.
Donald Wayne Dixon was born in North Carolina and talked often about how much he missed his home on the farm. He was a loving father to his four children, Kristina, Tara, Jewelia and Slayton. He was also a wonderful grandfather, friend, brother, uncle cousin and son. He was a commercial painter and his pride in his work led to him painting several hotels at the ocean front in Virginia Beach.
Spending as much time on the beach as he did naturally became one of his favorite places to be. He fulfilled the true meaning of a beach bum. He was a talented musician and he played the drums exceptionally. Our dad was also artistically inclined. He had a passion for painting art and continued his love to paint until his last days. Other than his hobbies we have always been told that his most favorite times were with his children.
We lost our father at the age of 53 on June 10, 2016, a day we will never forget. He had a heart of gold, funny, laid-back and fun to be around. He was always known to be very friendly and outgoing. He will be greatly missed by many. The memory of Donald Wayne Dixon will live in our hearts forever.
