Ronald Ray Dixon, A.K.A. “The Indian,” ran out of parts for his 57 Chevy on Feb. 15, 2019.
He had a good run at the age of 70 years old.
He was born March 26, 1948, and was preceded in death by his father, Ernest R. Dixon and his son-in-law, Michael Raterman.
He is survived by his two wolf cubs, daughter, Amie Raterman and his son, Ernest R. (Shelia) Dixon II; his loving grandchildrenm Cyerra, Chelsie, Bailey, Conner, Christopher and Tanner;his great-grandson, Liam; his mother, Rosie Dixon; his sister, Joyce Coy; three nieces; and great-nieces and nephews.
He was a concrete finisher by trade and he also served his country in the United States Marine Corps. He was a loving son, father and grand-father who loved to tease and nickname everyone. He was always excited to share the music and movies he loved. His favorite moments were spending time with his family playing cards, spoons, Scrabble, wrestling, football and Chicago style basketball.
He will forever remain the undisputed champion of Risk and was the finder of lost things.
Gone but not forgotten, he will shine through the morning sunlight and the soft breeze that touches your cheek and will always remain forever in our hearts.
The celebration of Ronnie’s life and his last journey will be with a private interment with family in the beautiful foothills of Kentucky through arrangements by Vernon Funeral Home in Urbana.
