Fred Dickson


Fred Dickson, 97, of the Prices Creek community of Adair County, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Monday, June 10, 2024.
He was born to the late Charlie Lee and Emma Shirley Dickson on September 28, 1926. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Myrtle Moore Dickson; a daughter, Linda Dickson Wilson; two brothers, Carl and Ernest Dickson; and two sisters, Lula Mae Bragg and Marie Dickson.
Mr. Dickson made a profession of faith at an early age and was a member of Prices Creek Missionary Baptist Church where he attended faithfully until recently when his health failed. He was a World War II veteran serving in the US Army as a medic. He was also a familiar face to many from his 44 years of employment at Adair Automotive. He will remain in the hearts of many as the strong, loving man they fondly called Dad, Pa Fred, and Poppy.
Survivors include a son, Howard Dickson (Sue) of Edmonton; a son-in-law, Johnnie Wilson; four grandchildren, Angela Shirley (Mark), Shannon Fields (Brian), Bradley Dickson (Sarah) and Marsha Shirley (Travis); eight great-grandchildren, Emma Murley (Luke), John Shirley (Rachel), Kelsey Judd (Kendall), Dylan Fields, Charlie, Chad and Chase Dickson and Hayden Shirley; a great-great-grandson, Levi Murley; and several nieces, nephews, friends, and other relatives.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 13, 2024 at Prices Creek Missionary Baptist Church with burial in the Shirley-Dickson Cemetery. Military honors will be provided by VFW Post 6097. Visitation will be on Thursday morning until 10 a.m. at Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home.
Bro. Keith Sanders and Bro Danny Dickson will officiate, and pallbearers will be Bradley Dickson, Mark Shirley, Brian Fields, Travis Shirley, Roger Judd and Mike Sexton.
