Prophet Billy Dixson, a fixture in the business and faith communities of Gulf County for decades, passed away Sunday.

He suffered a stroke three weeks ago.

Dixson, and his Dixson and Son Taxi Service vehicles, were constant presences throughout the community for years.

He was involved in a number of charities, large and small, and never lacked for a smile and kind word or “Be blessed.”

Further information, including memorial services, were not available at press time for this edition of The Star.
