Fred Dickson, 97, Adair Co., KY (1926-2024)

Mr. Fred Dickson of the Prices Creek community of Adair County passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Monday, June 10, 2024. He was 97 years old.

Funeral services will be held at 11amCT on Thursday, June 13, 2024, at Prices Creek Missionary Baptist Church, 1636 Price's Creek Road, with Bro. Keith Sanders and Bro Danny Dickson officiating. Burial will follow in the Shirley-Dickson Cemetery, with military honors provided by VFW Post 6097.

Visitation will be on Wednesday from 2pmCT until 8pmCT, and will continue Thursday morning until 10amCT at Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg St., Columbia, KY.

He was born to the late Charlie Lee and Emma Shirley Dickson on September 28, 1926. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Myrtle Moore Dickson; a daughter, Linda Dickson Wilson; two brothers, Carl, and Ernest Dickson; and two sisters, Lula Mae Bragg and Marie Dickson.

Mr. Dickson made a profession of faith at an early age and was a member of Prices Creek Missionary Baptist Church where he attended faithfully until recently when his health failed. He was a World War II veteran serving in the US Army as a medic. He was also a familiar face to many from his 44 years of employment at Adair Automotive. He will remain in our hearts as the strong, loving man we fondly called Dad, Pa Fred, and Poppy.

Survivors include a son Howard Dickson (Sue) of Edmonton, KY; a son-in-law Johnnie Wilson of Columbia, KY; four grandchildren Angela Shirley (Mark), Shannon Fields (Brian), Bradley Dickson (Sarah), and Marsha Shirley (Travis); eight great grandchildren Emma Murley (Luke), John Shirley (Rachel), Kelsey Judd (Kendall), Dylan Fields, Charlie, Chad and Chase Dickson, and Hayden Shirley; a great great grandson Levi Murley and several nieces, nephews, friends, and other relatives.

Pallbearers will be Bradley Dickson, Mark Shirley, Brian Fields, Travis Shirley, Roger Judd and Mike Sexton.
