Jeremy Ryan Dixon, passed away on August 4, 2023, in Clinton, Utah, Davis County, at the age of 26. He was born on February 28, 1997, in South Ogden, Utah. Jeremy was a medical miracle and always outperformed what every doctor said he wouldn't do. His lungs could no longer withstand the scarring from the infections he endured.
Jeremy was a very happy, loving, and social butterfly. He had a contagious smile and was full of joy. His favorite words were “I go bye!”. He was always a go-getter and had a deep love for books and music. His interests included science, rocks, minerals, astronomy, reactions, places, and animals of all kinds.
Jeremy is survived by his mother, Laurie Vincent (Gibson); his father, Ryan Vincent; and his grandmother, Wendy Gibson. He was preceded in death by his aunt, Jeanie Ellen Gibson; uncle, Ken Gibson; aunt, Robin Gibson; grandparents, Duane, Delores Gibson and Bill, Lois Vincent, cousin, Corbin Anderson; and his grandfather, Alan Gibson.
Jeremy attended Municipal Elementary in Roy, Utah, and Gramercy Elementary in Ogden, Utah. Mound Fort Junior High was his middle school. He later graduated from Ben Lomond High School. He also graduated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Seminary.
Jeremy had a wide range of hobbies and interests. He enjoyed teasing his PaPa, playing in the water, reading books, perfecting his looks and actions in the mirror, listening to Country Music DVDs, he always knew when they were ending. Brad Paisley, Eric Church, Sawyer Brown and Carrie Underwood were concerts Jeremy attended, but never wanted them to end. He was his dad’s fishing buddy, drawing on his drawing board, playing the guitar, and driving in the Super Mario Carts game. He loved anything outdoors, wildlife, nature, lakes, Scouts (working on Star Scout rank), going to fairs, outdoor shows, riding horses, swimming, attending live country music concerts and award shows, helping his mom in the garden and flower beds, and visiting greenhouses to see colorful plants and bugs. He also enjoyed participating in activities through Angels Hands Foundation and Mascot Miracles. Jeremy loved his buddies from Kruisers for Kids car show. Through this great group he was made an honorary member of the Oquirrh Outlaws car group.
