January 7, 1934 - June 14, 2019 Service Date: June 26, 2019 Funeral Home Anthony P Litwin Jr Funeral Homes Inc Loren Keith Dixon (Slug), age 85, passed peacefully on Friday, June 14th, 2019 at The Gardens in Tunkhannock.
Born to Cecil A. and Hazel (Aten) Dixon in 1934, predeceased by his wife Jane (McAvaney), he will be missed by his brothers Reese and Dale, his three children, David and wife Kathy, Dona Mcmahon and Richard and wife Nadine, his grandchildren Ryan, Erin, Keith, and Logan Dixon and Liam and Courtney Mcmahon, loving partner of many years Clare Murawski, and her extended family.
Loren was preceded in death by brothers Richard, William and Gerald and sisters Gertrude (Moore) and Lorna (McClain), as well as his beloved grandson Christopher.
Loren was a near-lifetime resident of Factoryville, and he helped to shape the town as a builder and business owner. He will be remembered as a man who worked tirelessly to provide for his family; he could often be heard reciting his favorite saying: “if you like what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
Loren loved to spend time with his grandchildren; he taught them to fish, hunt and took them for walks through the familiar fields and woods surrounding Factoryville as often as possible. He liked farm-fresh sweet corn, chocolate chip cookies and Gertrude Hawk Smidgens, and his family was lucky enough to share them liberally with him over many happy years.
Loren’s family wishes to thank Clare Murawski for her kindness and dedication to Loren, as well as the staff of The Gardens for their care during his extended stay.
Friends may call on Tuesday, June 25th, 2019 at 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Anthony P. Litwin Jr. Funeral Homes Inc., 33 Reynolds St., Factoryville. Internment will take place on Wednesday, June 26th at 10:00 AM at St. Catherine’s Cemetery, Moscow.
In lieu of flowers, please consider instead calling a loved one or taking a pet for a long walk in the woods in Loren’s memory.
