Death: Laury O. Dixon

SHARE Death: Laury O. Dixon

Laury Omen Dixon age 39, our mighty hunter and everyone's favorite redneck, lost his best and last fight with cancer on June 18, 1998 at home with his family around him.

"LOOK FOR ME IN THE MOUNTAINS AMONG THE DEER AND THE ELK."Born December 27, 1958 in Tooele, Utah to Golden W. and Donna S. Dixon. Both parents preceded him in death. We hope Mom is playing "Alley Cat" as he dances his way into Heaven. Laury was a lifelong resident of Tooele, graduate of Tooele High School and faithful member of the L.D.S. Church. One of his greatest joys was his membership in the Tooele County Search and Rescue, where he served for over 10 years. He was never afraid to show his love for others. He worked at L-3 Communications where he had many friends. He loved sports of all kinds and was a familiar face at many school and area games. He married Mary Mills on April 19, 1986, later solemnized in the Jordan River Temple. Laury had a great love for his children Tyson and Brittany. They were always at his side along with Mary.

He was the "much loved little brother" of Carolyn Dansie (Loren), of Midvale; and the "world's best support team" of brothers Ron (Gay); Ed (Kathy); both of West Valley City; Bill (Carla); Raymond (Tana); both of Tooele. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews and cousins who loved him dearly; and Mary's wonderfully supportive parents, Rex and Susan Mills, West Valley City, and their family.

A special thanks to the community and those who have generously given support to Laury and his family in their times of need.
