Dr. Rob Dixon

Feb. 27, 1936 – Sept. 27, 2016

We announce with deep sadness the passing of our husband and father Dr. Rob Dixon.

Rob was born in Oulton, England. He settled in to General Practice on Salt Spring Island in 1966. He was predeceased by his son Rhys. He is survived by Rowena, his loving wife of 59 years. Son, Robert (Mei), Rebecca, Rachael, Ryan/ Trevor (Leslie), Kiera, Dryden, Connor/ Sharon (Dave), Danielle, Jacquelyn, Jordan, Katelyn, Kirsty/ Myra (Chuck), Chantelle/ Rowan, Rheanna, Robbyn, Avah, Arrow/ Samantha (Luke), Travis, Andrea, Jaxun, Lucia. Two Great Grandchildren, GemmaLena and Donovan. Also his sister Thelma (Brian), Sam and Sarah. He will be greatly missed for his compassion, big smiles, sense of humour, and welcoming hospitality. We had twelve chairs and usually twenty or more people, consisting of family and friends enjoying the Sunday roast and the biggest box of quality Street chocolates over discussions of a variety of subjects; including Religion, Politics, and Sex! In his later years he enjoyed his scooter trips through the village to shop at his favourite stores. “Eternal rest give unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in Peace Amen”. A memorial service to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to The Red Cross or The Salvation Army.
