Mr. Alvin Lawrence Dixon aka Chubby, was born on July 4, 1967 to Vivian Washington and Lawrence Dixon in New York City. Chubby was an only child. He attended Richmond Senior High, Class of 1985. After graduating high school, Chubby joined the United States Air Force where he dedicated ten years of service as an Air Traffic Controller.
Chubby was not afraid of hard work whether that meant employment or self-discovery. He had 8 years of sobriety and was extremely proud of his accomplishment. Volunteering as a sponsor for those struggling with sobriety became a past time he took seriously; however, his favorite past time was riding his motorcycle. Although Chubby was an only child, at one-month-old, he came to North Carolina with Corrine and Frank Washington where his aunts, uncles, and cousins became the siblings he never had
His parents (Vivian and Lawrence) in addition to four adopted siblings (Brenda Washington Staton, Rodney Staton, Mary Washington Smith, Alvin Washington, and Bertha Washington Woodard) preceded him in death. He leaves behind on son Darryl D. Dixon. One grandson Zaire D. Dixon and a granddaughter Zelia S. Dixon of Alexandria, Louisiana. 8 adopted siblings (Doney Washington of Hamlet, North Carolina, Frances Freeman of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Frank Washington of Meridian, Mississippi, Harold Washington of Baltimore, Maryland, Luther (Sonja) Washington of Cheltenham, Maryland, Nathaniel Washington (Kim) of Bowie, Maryland, Michael Washington of Hamlet, North Carolina, and one special sister-in-law Patricia Washington of Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Chubby had a special relationship with two adopted sisters (cousins), Jeanette (Donnie) Burnett of Hamlet, North Carolina Ponda (Robert) Bright of Rockingham, North Carolina.
Three adopted nieces Shannon Burnett of Aberdeen, North Carolina. Nerissa Burnett of Hamlet, North Carolina. Tamekia (L.J.) Ellerbe of Rockingham, North Carolina and one adopted Nephew Robert Bright, Jr. of Hamlet, North Carolina. In addition to those, Madalyn and Bryson Burnett of Hamlet, North Carolina were two individuals that held a special place in his heart just like his own.
Chubby loved his family and friends. he even named his son after his two best friends. He was true to his word and spoke his mind. If he liked you, you knew and if he disliked you...you knew that too. Sugarcoating was not his approach, but he had the biggest heart. Chubby was one of a kind and if you say otherwise. In the words of Chubby.
I got three words.
