Morris Dixon

September 4, 2021


When someone you Jove becomes a memory. that memory becomes a treasure. 

On June 15, 1955, Morris Dixon was born to the late Robert Dixon and Claudary Whiting. He departed this life on September 4, 2021, at the age of 66, in his hometown of Trenton, NJ. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing life's challenges with a smile. Despite the pain, Morris came out a hero and stayed strong until the end. 

Morris was a hard worker who held several jobs throughout his life, but his true passion was working with cars as an auto mechanic. Morris was a real-life "Mr. 
Fix-it," and his family believed he could repair anything. It didn't matter if it was a game system, radio, or SUV; all you had to do was give it to Daddy, and he'd make it work again. 

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to "Dixon," as he was affectionately known. He was a skilled musician who loved to play the keyboard and strum the strings of his bass guitar. He enjoyed fishing, riding and fixing his bike. Dixon had an uncanny ability to find happiness in his daily activities, playing cards or just hanging out with his buddies. He enjoyed spending time with his children and grandbabies, and his pleasant personality was contagious to everyone he met. 

Morris was preceded in death by his father, Robert Dixon, mother Claudary (Arie) Whiting, brother Kenny Dixon, and grandparents Ann (Nanny)and Luther Herring. 

He leaves to cherish his memory his stepfather Donald Whiting his wife Vanessa Banks, four children, Kiva Muse (Zenoma), Antionette Boles (William), Andraya Elijah, and Morris Muse. Two sisters, Sondra Brown, and Jacqueline Jones. Three brothers, Robert Dixon, Gregory Dixon, and Daniel Dixon. Four lifelong friends, Oscar, Jason, Tubby, and Donna Blakemore. 15 grandchildren, his beloved nephews, nieces, cousins, and host friends.
