Read more about the life story of Matthew and share your memory.
Matthew Aaron Dixon, age 42, of Circleville, passed away Monday, August 21, 2023, at home following his battle with brain cancer.
On November 21, 1980, Matthew was born, a son of Virgil Dale Dixon and Martha (Sass) Davidson in Wilmington, North Carolina.
He graduated from Pickerington High School in 1999. He then joined the United States Coast Guard in 2001.
Matthew had a career at ForTec Medical, where he held various positions.
In 2001, Matthew mustered up the courage to ask Sarah Rouse, who he met at a mutual friends’ party, out on a date. From there, the rest is history. They were married thereafter on August 31, 2002, sharing nearly 21 years of marriage, and raising two children together: Travis and Garrett.
Over the years, Matthew gave the clothes off his own back to help others. He enjoyed painting, golfing, camping and fishing. He loved quiet nights at home playing board games, video games, and building Legos; as well as spending time with family and friends.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Sarah Dixon of Circleville; two children: Travis Dixon, and Garrett Dixon; his mother: Martha Davidson; his father: Virgil Dixon; his stepfather: Chris Davidson; his stepmother: Joanne Dixon; his brother: Chris Dixon; his nephews: Hunter Dixon, and Jonathon French; his niece: Kaydee French; and his in-laws: John and Anne Rouse.
Matthew was loved by many and will be forgotten by none. He will be deeply missed but leaves his friends and family with memories to last a lifetime. He inspired so many through the years with his fighting spirit and sense of humor. He never missed an opportunity to bring a laugh and a smile to everyone around him.
With Matthew’s time in the United States Coast Guard, he developed a large extended family that grew to be very close. As he crosses the bar for the last time, they now ‘have the watch’ for their shipmate, to allow Matthew this time to rest in peace. A Celebration of Life event will be held at a later date, to be planned by his wife and children. Online condolences can be made to www.wellmanfuneralhomes.com.
