May 14, 1945 - July 23, 2017
The earthly burdens of Robert G. Dickson, formerly of Manchester, NH, were lifted from his shoulders Sunday evening, July 23, 2017 at Citrus Memorial Hospital in Inverness, Florida among family and friends. Robert was the eldest son of the late Alnora (Lockwood) Dickson and Cecil H. Dickson of Manchester. He attended Manchester area schools. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served his country proudly in the Vietnam era, having served with the Fleet Marine Force stationed at Subic Bay in the Philippine Islands, the 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and with the security detachment at the Portsmouth (NH) Navy Yard and the US Navy Disciplinary Command (The Castle) also at Portsmouth NH. After fulfilling his military obligations, Robert was employed at various manufacturing facilities in Manchester and northern Connecticut. Upon relocating to Florida, he held positions in the municipalities of Dunnellon and Dunedin, Florida. He met and married the love of his life, the late Karen Boisvert, formerly of Maine, and settled in Inverness, where he was forced into early retirement due to a prolonged illness. Robert was preceded in death by his beloved wife of sixteen and a half years, Karen, earlier this year, and his younger brother Donald, of St. Petersburg, Florida in 2015. He is survived by his two younger brothers, Leonard, of Manchester, and Frederick, of Milford NH, several nieces and nephews and cousins. No services for Robert are planned for the immediate future, and arrangements for same will be contemplated at the convenience of family members. Any memorial contributions folks may wish to make can be directed to any local animal shelter, as Robert held an affinity for rescue dogs and cats, from whom he derived daily comfort and joy.
