Kermit P. Dixon
Saturday 5th of April 1947 - Sunday 4th of April 2021
Kermit Pierce Dixon, 73, passed away late Easter Sunday afternoon, April 4, 2021. Kermit was born in Georgetown, Kentucky on April 5, 1947 to the late Kermit T. and Mary (West) Dixon.
Kermit was the husband of Fay Dixon who preceded him in death on March 19, 2020. Most locals knew Kermit as the owner of Dixon's Service Center for 45 years until his retirement in 2020. He participated in numerous fishing tournaments over the years and never turned down going to a UK basketball game. He was the type of person who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. His family was his number one priority. He will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to come into contact with him.
Kermit is survived by his son, Barry (Tessa) Dixon; stepchildren, Rodney White, Glenna (Frank) Florence, and Michelle (David) Creighton; grandchildren, Ciera (Danny) Newman, McKenzie McIntosh, Andrea White, Austin White, Montana Creighton, Zach Millsaps, Vanessa Hopper, Cody (Katie) Dixon, and Austin Dixon and great-grandchildren, Aiden Bowman, Pierce Newman, Sophia Bowman, Peyton Newman, Michael Hopper, Maddax Hopper, Caspen Hopper, Kaidence Dixon, and Koda Dixon. In addition to his wife, Fay, Kermit was preceded in death by three sisters.

We were neighbors on Peachtree some time ago. Kermit and family were most kindest and caring. He loved working at his service station and fishing. He and Fay are going to be missed..😪
I called on Kermit for 29 years & he was A-1 in my dealings with him. He had the last full service gas station in Lexington which everyone will miss... just a great guy...

Kermit was a big part of our family. My heart goes out to his children who he was so fond of and treated them as his own. I learned a lot about Kermit through his daughter Michelle who is my daughter-in-law. Her nickname for him was "fatty" and he loved it. He was so good to them during their childhood and took them on camping trips and vacations. It was clear that he loved his family. He will be missed by everyone especially his children.
Kermit was an active member in the Bluegrass Independent Garage Owners and the Automotive Service Association. He lasted longer in the business than most of us. Kermit was an inspiration and a very hard working man and freind. He will be missed.
Kermit will be missed by me and many of the garage owners with whom he had associated. Kermit was a role model to many of how a customer should be treated. I'll miss stopping in at Dixon's.
