He was the 2nd of two children born on November 23, 1944, to John Albert Dixon and Frances Josephine (Kirk) Dixon. He graduated from Sunnyslope High School in 1962 and graduated from Arizona State University in 1966 with degrees in Chemistry and Math and minors in Spanish and German. He married Marilyn Oleah Everett Dixon in 1964. They were sealed in the Mesa Arizona Temple.
