David B. Dixon ("THAT'S ALL FOLKS!") was born May 25, 1953 in Colville. He left us on July 15, 2013, at the beautiful Coeur d'Alene River in Kingston, Idaho.
David grew up in Colville and graduated from Colville High School in 1971. He was the "most skilled" finish carpenter around and worked for many general contractors around the area, as well as his own businesses. David was an outdoorsman to the max. He very much enjoyed camping, hiking and taking his snowmobile out--just being outdoors in general was a great pleasure to him.
He took everything in and enjoyed relaying his knowledge to anyone that was with him. He was well known for his caring personality, hilarious sense of humor, and numerous "Dave-isms" such as "s**t and fall back".David was a great friend, son, and altogether good person who was honest to a fault and was not afraid to fight for what was right. He was a devout cat lover and very much missed his two favorite feline friends, Buckwheat and Howie.
Dave is survived by his son, Christopher Sphuler; brother, Ron Dixon, Colville; his sister, Donna Cromeens, Loveland, CO.
He will also be greatly missed by his dear friends who considered him family: Phyllis Dunlap, Rob King and Dawn Zoesch and their children, Ashton and Karissa, along with the infamous Mr. Johnny Carter.
Rest in peace our friend, in the arms of your loving mother and other loved ones. We will miss you terribly, but we know we will see you again. Until then, we look forward to your ceiling hugs!
At his request, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in David's memory to St. Labre Indian School, 1000 Tongue River Rd., Ashland, MT 59003, 866-753-5496.
