Ronald E. Dixon, age 76, of Bucyrus, Ohio passed away on June 2, 2024, after a lengthy illness. Ron was born July 10, 1947, in Bucyrus, Ohio.

Ron was a lifelong resident of Bucyrus, Ohio. He served in the United States Navy. In the early years, he worked for Byrd Ambulance of Bucyrus, was a probation officer in Mansfield, and was a guard at the Marion Correctional Institute. Ron then moved on to work at B.F.

He was an avid lover of all music dating back to the 50’s along with his love of karaoke, a little league baseball coach to many, and he was an assistant Bucyrus high School football coach. He was man of many hobbies: riding four wheelers, fishing, coin collecting, golf ball hunting, arrowhead hunting, restoring antiques and vehicles, and always looking for “Good Deals!” His favorite hobby, however, was watching his Ohio State Buckeyes. Before Ron’s illness, he enjoyed spending time with his granddaughter Brynn, whom he helped take care of.
