William Joseph Dixon, 62, of Des Moines, Iowa, passed away peacefully Friday, January 6, 2023, at his home in Des Moines, Iowa.


Better known as Billy Jo, he was born October 15, 1960, in Iowa City, Iowa, to Claude and Madeline Edmonds Dixon.

He graduated from Grandview University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration in 1987.


William was an avid hunter and fisherman. A die-hard Hawkeye Fan and Intense for the Minnesota Vikings. He was employed with Hy-Vee, Frito Lay and Purcell Printing for 22 years.


William leaves to cherish his memory his daughters, Shelby Lynne Dixon and Kali Jo Dixon, his grandson, Taji Henley II and a multitude of nieces and nephews. His brothers Clyde (Dee) Edmonds, Mike (Linda) Edmonds, Robert Timothy (Adrian) Edmonds, Terry (Penny) Edmonds; sisters, Claudette D. Edmonds, Nadine (Bob) Cole, Teresa Dixon and partner Lisa McDonald Stewart. He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Kathleen Buckner, and Charlene Burrell.

.

He will be remembered as a wonderful father, grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend to all those who knew him. The love and light that he brought to every space he entered will not be soon forgotten. His kindness was evident, as he was a friend to every soul he encountered. He will be remembered as someone with an undeniably contagious smile, someone who was always singing and dancing, and the life of every party.


The family would like to give special thanks to Purcell Printing and the many others who have sent condolences and remembrances to the family.
