James Norval Dixon, IV
May 16, 1974 – December 11, 2022
James “Jamie” Norval Dixon IV, 48, of Calvert County, passed away on December 11, 2022 peacefully in his sleep. Jamie grew up on a farm in Huntingtown, Maryland, plowing fields and roaming the woods with his siblings. He was always an adventure, with a playful glint in his eye and smirk on his face. He was mischievous, and full of fun. He was the one that made us smile and laugh with his quips and antics. He began his career in security locally after high school and became an accomplished locksmith eventually becoming employed by the Department of Homeland Security. He was a survivor of the 9/11 Pentagon attack and was soon thereafter diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Myasthenia Gravis (MG), both of which greatly impacted his health. Jamie joined the Masonic Brotherhood in 2006, serving 16 years. He was a member of the York Rite and Past Master of the of Prince Frederick Lodge No 142 in 2012 and 2013. He was proud of his service as a Brother to both the lodge and his community. If you asked Jamie what his greatest accomplishment was, he would have said his son Jimmy. He was his world and he loved being his father. They enjoyed being together, walking on the beach, playing basketball, and watching movies. Jimmy will remember him as being the strongest person he knew. Above all, Jamie was a friend. He loved life and the people who were sharing it with him. He was a kind, old soul that drew people to him. He knew no strangers.
His services will be held on Monday, December 19, 2022, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church beginning with a public viewing at 10 a.m., service and burial beginning at 11 a.m. A reception and Masonic Memorial Service to be held following the graveside burial at the Masonic Lodge in Prince Frederick MD.
He is survived by his son James “Jimmy” Norval Dixon V (Mollie Haynes) of St. Leonard MD; Parents James “Jimmy” Norval Dixon III (LaDonna) of Erin TN and Jacqueline “Jackie” Leah Russell of Leonardtown MD; Sisters Melissa Racine (Bryan) of Drayden MD and Tammie Neall of Chesapeake Beach MD; Brother, Robert Dixon of Summerville SC; Nieces Madison Neall, Karlie Dixon, Grace Neall, Lillian Racine, and Olivia Racine; Nephews Brian Neall Jr. and Russell Racine; and many, many friends.
