The family will greet friends from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Memorials may be directed to the American Cancer Society. Those attending the visitation and funeral will be required to wear a mask. Social distancing rules remain in effect.

On November 27, 1928 in Carbon, Iowa a son, Darwin Max, was born to Hugh Melvin and Edna May (Mosier) Dixon. Darwin entered into eternal peace on June 13, 2020 in Omaha, Nebraska.

His early life was spent in the Carbon and Corning communities. In May of 1946 he enlisted in the United States Army and served during WW II and the Korean Conflict. He earned the rank of Sergeant First Class and served over the communications division. On May 28, 1950 he was united in marriage to Ardith G. Murphy. The couple lived in several states throughout their marriage including Georgia, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Missouri and Iowa. The couple was blessed with 70 years of marriage.

Darwin was skilled butcher and meat cutter. He was self employed and worked hard to provide for his family. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he served as Bishop for several years and held other positions in the church as well. One of his great passions, excluding his family was tending to his garden.

He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Chester, Alice, Albert, Vernon "Dutch" and Lucy; and beloved daughter Linda Joy Jones.

Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife Ardith of the home; children Cheri (David) Hargadin of Elizabeth, CO, Kim (Lupe) Flores of Moreno Valley, CA, Rhonda (Kim) Roper of Orem, UT and Hollis (Cindy) Dixon of Spanish Fork, UT; son-in-law Kevin Jones of Coin, IA; 31 grandchildren; 84 great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great grandchild; and brother Larry Dixon.

In the spirit of giving, Darwin was a tissue donor through Live on Nebraska. Many will benefit from his selfless gift. Darwin lived an exemplary life by showing his love for his family, his Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and his country.
