Adrian Glenn Dixon, Sr.

January 2, 1968 ~ November 22, 2021 (age 53)


On January, 2, 1968, Adrian Glenn Dixon, affectionately known as, Glenn, was the perfect bundle of joy and first child, born to Casey James Dixon, Jr., and Bessie Couch Dixon. He brought so much joy into their lives and he continued to bring joy into all the lives that he touched thereafter. 

Being raised in a Christian home with both parents being blessed with anointed voices, Glenn accepted Christ as his personal Savior and joined Jeffries Chapel M.B Church in Abbeville, Mississippi and later joined East St, Peter M.B. Church in Abbeville, and used his gifts and talents in service. In 1988, Glenn moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he joined Free Spirit Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Kenneth Bonner. He continued to use his talent and served there for 14 years as a musician and developed a great family relationship with the church. Upon Glenn's move to the Memphis area, he joined Cumming Street M.B. Church, and as always, he served using his gift as a musician, playing the bass guitar and serving there until his untimely death.  Glenn received his education in the Oxford School district where he was active in sports and music, participating in track, basketball, and band. He graduated from Oxford High School in 1986.

Glenn achieved many awards during his musical career. In 2002, while playing with gospel music recording artist, The Bonner Brothers, he signed a major record deal with Malco Records, and that same year, he won the James Cleveland Award. He was nominated for "Best New Artist " Stellar Award, and he received the Medgar Evers Peace Award

After Glenn's move to the Memphis area, he gained employment with Methodist LeBonheur-Germantown Hospital as Unit Manager. Glenn was the proud father of two loving children, Adria'ona and Adrian Glenn, Jr. In 2018, he said "I DO" and married the woman who captured his heart, and, he gained a bonus son, Brien. Glenn loved being bass man, and currently played for Trio Plus Band of Memphis, Tennessee and TWEC (True Worship Empowerment Church),of Olive Branch, Mississippi.  

On Monday, November 22, 2021, while at Methodist Hospital, Olive Branch, Glenn's physical body succumbed to the forces of this earthly life and he obeyed the will of God and went home to be at rest. He will be missed and lovingly remembered by his wife: Sylvia Boone Dixon of Olive Branch, MS; his children: Adria'ona G. Vassar of Nashville TN, Adrian Glenn (Bryanna) Dixon, Jr., of Tupelo MS, and Brien Kimmons of Olive Branch MS; his mother: Bessie Dixon of Oxford MS; his brother: Kendrix Dejuan Dixon of Olive Branch MS; his sister: Cora Dixon of Memphis TN; one grandchild: Nova Dixon of Tupelo MS; his loving grandmother: Queenie Blakely Dixon of Oxford, a God-sister: Angela Holmes of Oxford MS and his Father and Mother-in-law: Luster and Gwen King of Oxford MS. Glenn also leaves a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends, and other family and friends.

Please keep the Dixon family in your prayers.
