Born January 4, 1958, in Alton, he was the son of Orville John and Nancy Louise (Greenwell) Dixon. He retired in 2010 from Alton Labor Local 218.

He absolutely loved traveling and crossed off his number one bucket list item by traveling to all 50 states with Evelyn. Terry had a laugh that filled a room, was always smiling, and was always there to help anyone out. Visitation will be from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Monday, December 5, 2022, at Gent Funeral Home in Alton.
