John Robert Dickenson

John Robert Dickenson, 79, of Frankfort, passed away at his home on Saturday, May 9, 2020.  He was born in Wise County, VA on July 24, 1940 to Carl and Sallie (Mullins) Dickenson.  He married Marie Downs on August 5, 1967.  She survives. He worked at Exide Battery for over 30 years until his retirement in 1997.

John was a man that enjoyed nature and being outdoors.  His hobbies include mowing the yard, fishing, watching wildlife on his property, especially the turkeys and squirrels.  But his true passion was his family.  He enjoyed family gatherings, and most of all, loved taking care of his wife.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, and six sisters.
