Obituary

Harold A. (Hal) Dixon passed away peacefully at the Halifax Health Hospice Care Center in Port Orange, Fl. on October 2, 2021 from UN-diagnosed (until the end) metastatic colon cancer at the age of 80. He will forever be remembered for his larger than life personality and a sense of humor that he never lost. If he made fun of you, he liked you!

Hal is survived by his wife Linda Morse Dixon of Port Orange and his son Seamus (Jamie) Dixon who resides in Greenville, SC. He is also survived by nephews William Dixon (Betty), James Dixon (Pamela) and niece Barbara Woodsome (Don). He is also survived by sister-in-law Jill Lux (Clancy) and brother-in-law Richard Morse (Kathy) and many Great nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his parents, a daughter Colleen Dixon, his sister Margaret Parker, brother William Dixon, niece Mary Dixon and nephews Richard Dixon and John Dixon.

Hal was born on April 27, 1941 in Lynn, Massachusetts, to parents Ellen Halley Dixon and William H. Dixon.

He graduated from St. Mary’s Boys High School in Lynn, attended Bentley College in Boston and Merrimack College in Andover.

Hal moved to Syracuse, NY in 1968 where he met Linda and they married in 1972.

In his spare time….Hal was the Promoter for Brewerton Speedway when Archie Green owned and operated the track in Brewerton, NY. Hal dedicated his career to non profit working for many years at PEACE, INC in Syracuse as the Comptroller, Elmcrest Children’s Center and Catholic Charities. Hal ended his career in Daytona at The ARC as Controller and Interim Executive Director. He continued to do accounting and tax work from home. And he loved to play golf with his many friends in Florida and NY. He was so happy that he got to spend time in Brewerton this past summer with friends. Sadly, he knew it was his last.

Hal was a member and past president of Port Orange Eagles Aerie 4089 and belonged to Sons of the American Legion Post 361.

There will be a Memorial/Celebration of Life for Hal at The Port Orange Eagles, 5130 S. Ridgewood Ave. at 1 o’clock pm on October 30th.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Hal Dixon to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. PO Box 50…..Memphis, TN 38101-9929

    Linda and Jamie - I have no words that can possibly comfort you. This is an incredible loss. Hal was an amazing and talented man, and funny as could be. We prayed him straight into Heaven - I am sure the angels were even singing his name. May he rest in peace until you are all joined together once more. Much love and hugs.

    I will always miss those great big hugs from Hal when I would run into him at Publix. Hal was loved by both my Mom & Dad, and was one of my Dad's favorite people to pick on. Of course, Hal always returned the favor when I would see him at Publix! I will always remember him as that tall, handsome man, that gave the best hugs ever. Linda, you and your family will forever be in my prayers. I love & appreciate what a beautiful friend you. May God Bless you.

    To Linda and Jamie,
    It has been a honor
    to be a friend of Hal,
    His humor was classic,
    A good friend, husband,
    and Father, The gang
    here in upstate NY..
    Will always miss his friendship, funny stories,
    And that look when he
    knew he had you laughing.
    Thanks Hal, for the memories that will last
    forever.....
    RIP HAL
    GOD BLESS Linda and Jamie.....
