With many mixed emotions and broken hearts, the Majestic Funeral Home Family joins with family of Mr. William Ervin Dixon affectionately known as “Sleepy” as they prepare to say “Until We Meet Again”. Mr. Dixon transitioned from this life on Sunday morning at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC.
Celebration of Life events will begin with a time of reflection on Thursday evening, between the hours of 6pm and 8pm, as Mr. Dixon rests in tranquil repose, at the altar in the main sanctuary of Pleasant Union Missionary Baptist Church in Riegelwood, NC. On Friday morning, commencing at 11am, the Triumphant Legacy Celebration will be called to order, also at Pleasant Union Missionary Baptist Church. Immediately following the services in the sanctuary, Mr. Dixon’s earthen vessel along with his cherished family, will be escorted to the church cemetery for Committal Rites. So many in the community knew “Sleepy” for his produce stand and country store. However, all can be comforted knowing that he no longer sells cold drinks because he is now in that Land, where there’s a brook flowing with “living water”. He no longer sells fruits and vegetables from a tree or vine because he is now resting, where there is a tree and it’s leaves are good for the healing of all sickness.
Loving memories will forever live in the hearts of his lovely wife Eula L. Dixon; his children: William Ervin Dixon Jr. (Shateika), Mikayla J. Robinson, Justin L. Robinson and Emmanuel G. Robinson; his sisters: Virginia Cousar (Grant), Annie Ruth Teachey, Sandra Dixon Mays (Hardrick), Mary Lou Andrews, Terry Moore (Craig); his brothers: Joseph Dixon (Shelia), Myrick Dixon (VelBea’); 5 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins other relatives and friends.
Guests are being received at the residence located at 207 N. 10th St., Wilmington, NC.
Majestic Funeral Home in Riegelwood is attending to the delicate needs of the Dixon and connected families during these emotional moments in their lives.
