Obituary

Erik David Dixon, 44 of Penn Run, unexpectedly died Sunday, June 14th at the Indiana Regional Medical Center. Born in Indiana on May 26, 1976 he was the son of Jeri Lynn (Johns) Kane of Indiana and Michael Dennis Dixon. He was the husband of Breanna R. (Wellen) Dixon, whom he married November 25, 2015. They were best friends for years prior to their marriage.

Erik and Breanna worked together and were the co-owners of DXW Services, LLC of Indiana. Erik was a very kind hearted man who loved the outdoors, riding his UTV’s and spending time at his camp near Marion Center. He also enjoyed operating heavy equipment, especially his dozer and excavator. Erik traveled to help at “Ground Zero” in New York City following the September 11th attack in 2001. Then in 2010 both Erik and Breanna helped with the BP Oil Spill cleanup in Louisiana.

He was a loving husband and father who adored his family and loved being with his children. Erik was a retired Life Member of the Pine Township Fire Company where he was a former assistant chief.

Erik is also remembered by his granddaughter, Layla; niece, Chloe Mobus; father, David Boback, Dixonville; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Junior and Cathy Newlin, Penn Run and brother-in-law, Nicholas Mobus, Penn Run.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Roe and Patricia Johns; step-father, Jim Kane and uncle, Raymond Johns.
