Ted Dixon, 59, of Beaufort, passed away on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at his home.
Ted grew up in Greensboro and often came to the beach with grandparents when he was a child. This love of the ocean since childhood lead him to move to the Crystal Coast. He enjoyed working on cars, and worked for Parker Automotive in Morehead City for over 30 years. Ted’s greatest joy however was his grandchildren. He loved kids and was always the biggest kid in the room. He was a big “Teddy bear” which became a nickname many of those close to him used.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
He is survived by his wife, Jan Dixon of Beaufort; son, Gram Dixon of Beaufort; daughter, Caitlin Goodwin of Chesapeake, VA; six grandchildren: Breanna, Austin, David, Alyssa, Cullen, and Addalyn; brother, David Dixon of the Philippines.
He was preceded in death by his parents, David and Bebe Dixon; sister, Debra Ale.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800-273-8255 at: Vibrant Emotional Health – C/O Development Office, 50 Broadway, Fl 19, New York, NY 10004.
