May 7, 2024

Bobby Allen Dix, Sr., 59, of Cantonment, FL received his healing at the feet of Jesus on April 28th, 2024, in the care of Covenant Hospice after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. He was surrounded by Family and friends as he took his last breath on earth and his first in heaven.

Bobby was born in Jacksonville FL to Glenda and Winter Dix on April 10th, 1965.

Bobby was known for having various jobs to provide for his family. He served in the US Air Force, was a volunteer firefighter and spent nearly 29 years working for the department of Corrections. He retired in June of 2023.
He always wanted to make people laugh. Bobby loved his Florida Gators and his Miami Dolphins. He was always about simple things. He enjoyed playing dominoes and quietly helping the homeless. Over the years he chaperoned band trips and youth camps. Bobby also helped with the West Florida Tech football team, J.M. Tate High School AJROTC, Band, and Football, just to name a few. He was supportive of Melanie being a “stay at home Mom” when they married in May of 2003. The college football season FSU/Florida rivalry made for interesting conversation and a “house divided”.

His absolute favorite things were telling people about what God has done for him, serving quietly behind the scenes at Harvest Christian Center and becoming a Pawpaw. He was always smiling when he would talk about any of the three.

Bobby was a Husband, Dad, Brother, Uncle, Pawpaw, and Friend to everyone he met. He will be missed dearly. He trusted the Lord to heal him, and God did.

Bobby is preceded in death by both of his parents, Glenda Gaunt and Winter Dix; as well as his brother, Jeffery Dix.

Bobby also greatly loved his multitude of Nieces, Nephews, Great Nieces, Great Nephews, and In Laws. Then there were many friends that were more like family and that included many kids that became “adopted”. To him, everyone was family, and he would want you to know it.

Pallbearers and Honorary Pallbearers: Sons, Brothers, Nephews, and Century CI.

A very special thank you to Ascension Sacred Heart, Covenant Care, and Vitas for making Bobby’s 22 day stay the best it possibly could be. Our family was blessed beyond measure for the care you gave him.
