iLuvMyTrucker: Marvin Dixon

Updated Sep 23, 2013

MarvinDixonI luv my trucker because for 48 years he’s pounded the pavement as hard as he could to make a great life for my family. When he was gone for a birthday or holiday he’d call and we could talk as long as we wanted. When he was home all his time was spent with us and I have great memories of learning how to shoot, using a magnifying glass to roast ants, and barbecues in the backyard. My Dad is my hero — he’s constantly reading and learning and sharing with us. He’s safe and reliable and a great family man and has taught his children all those attributes. We love him and miss him when he’s gone but we know he’s doing what he loves. And when he gets home we all come to spend time with him now!
