Kai Dixon

September 27, 1963 — September 20, 2017

Kai Bryan Dixon, 53, returned to his Heavenly Father on September 20, 2017.

He was born in Pocatello, Idaho on September 27, 1963 the 2nd of 4 children to Gary and Irmgard Dixon. He graduated from Highland High School in 1981. That same year he married his high school sweetheart Gina Spradlin and together they had two sons, Bryan and Eric Dixon. Also in 1981he enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and was stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He served on many overseas deployments and was proud to have served his country.

In 1988 he was taught by Norris Brown and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science degree from Idaho State University in Diesel Electric and shortly after moved his family to Reno, Nevada to work in this field. In 1996 Norris retired and Kai was invited to apply and did accept the position of Instructor at Idaho State University. He was proud of this field of work and loved teaching it, and taught it until his passing.

Kai loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and camping with his family and friends. He was an expert marksman and loved sharing this sport with many. His firearms were his special little babies and those that knew him, knew this. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
