At the conclusion of the services, a procession will leave Free Chapel for interment at Memorial Park Cemetery. Law enforcement patrol vehicles with flashing blue lights will line each side of the roadway along the route. The procession, including the funeral caisson, will pass through the center en route to the cemetery.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office said they welcome members of the community to line the procession route to celebrate the life and contributions of Dixon.

Roadways used during the funeral procession will be completely closed from approximately 11:45 a.m. until the procession concludes. Motorists are asked to take alternate routes.

Because of space constraints at the cemetery, graveside honors will be live-streamed to Free Chapel for members of the public in attendance at the funeral.
