William (Bill) Charles Dixon was born on July 12, 1944 in Brandon Manitoba.  Bill was the third child of Earl and Lillian Dixon.  He attended Rowland and Killarney schools until 1962 when he quit high school to move back to the family farm NW of Killarney to help his dad farm.  He worked for Plain Western Gas in the winters before taking an adventure with George Foote to Calgary, Alberta seeking winter employment.  In Calgary, he took a job with Randco Manufacturing where he met one of the owners, Harold Sullivan.  Harold was he eldest brother of Dallis Janet Sullivan who after a short courtship, became Bill’s wife.  They married in Calgary on July 29, 1967 then moved to the Killarney area and built their own family farm together on 16-4-17 where they raised their family.  They welcomed their first son, Travis Lane in August 1972, then their daughters, Treena Rae in May 1975, Heather Frances in August 1982, then their son Tyson Donald in September 1987.
Bill and Dallis purchased a business and property in Killarney from Roy Watson on November 1, 1979 and named it Dixon’s Farm Supply.  In 1985, they moved their business to a bigger property and building on highway #18.  They sold the farm and moved their family into Killarney in 1993.  He continued to run the family business until the early 2000s then became the Weed Supervisor for Killarney and surrounding area until he retired.  Bill had no formal training but was a natural mechanic and a jack of all trades.  He could fix anything and enjoyed helping family and friends out as well.
Bill enjoyed playing hockey including coaching minor hockey and playing with the Minto Mustangs and Ninga house league.  He also enjoyed golfing, hunting, camping, traveling and spending time with his friends and family.  In the 1970’s he earned his private pilot’s license and enjoyed flying around the area and taking his kids for rides.  His greatest pride was watching his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren grow.  He was very proud of each and every one of them.
He met Julie Moore in 2010 and spent his last years with her golfing, camping, fishing and traveling to the Canadian east coast, Alaska, into the US and BC.
Bill is predeceased by his father, Benjamin Earl, his mother, Lillian Pearl, brother, George, sister, Pearl, and his beloved wife, Dallis.
