In memory of
Theron Russell "TR" Dickinson
THERON DICKINSON Jan. 18, 2018 Theron Russell 'TR' Dickinson, passed away peacefully, Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, at the Gardens in Tunkhannock, with his son Russ by his side. He was born in Centermoreland, Dec. 7, 1931, to the late Clifford Hamilton and Eva Shippey Dickinson. Theron graduated from Tunkhannock High School in 1949, and played the trombone four years in the band. Theron enjoyed attending the Kunkle dances where he met his loving wife, Dorothy. He moved to Richmond, Va., where he spent several years working in sales. He then moved back to his father's farm which he took over. Theron also was a Deutz dealer. After he sold the farm he moved to Vero Beach, Fla., where he spent his later years. Theron returned to Tunkhannock last year. He was a Past Master at the Tunkhannock Masonic Lodge. TR enjoyed spending time on the farm and spending winter days snowmobiling around the farm with family and friends. His children will always remember his sense of humor with some of his favorite sayings: "Milk the cows," "Get to the barn, "Clean the drop," and "If you buy a Deutz, you have a tractor for life." He is survived by his six children: Clifford Dickinson and wife Crystal of Richmond, Va., Diane Dickinson and husband Kevin of Richmond, Va., Patricia (Tish) Taylor and husband Denis of Richmond, Va., Terri Alderson and husband John of Roanoke, Va., Theron (Russ) Dickinson Jr. and wife Mary of Dalton, and Kimberly Mock and husband Keith of Tunkhannock; his grandchildren: Matthew, Jennet, Andrew, Leslie, Nathan, Sarah, Vince, Jonas, Melissa, Theron III (Rudi), Hannah, Jacob, Maryjo, and Thomas; eight great-grandchildren; a sister Marion Sands of Florida; and his companion Charlotte Dickinson; nieces; and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife Dorothy Louise Prutzman; and brother Elmer. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the Gardens in Tunkhannock for their kindness and care to TR during his stay there.
