Bart was born on July 23, 1957 as the youngest of 7 to Bartlett Dickson II and Alberta Harmon Dickson in Tacoma, Washington. As a young man, Bart moved around frequently, first with his family and later on his own. Living in the greater Seattle area, Hawaii, military tours in Korea, working with oil drilling in California, China, and eventually Hobbs. He was an avid traveler and enjoyed being on the road. Whether that was living in his trailer while working in the mountains, or traveling abroad. He loved being outdoors, hunting fishing or hiking. When he eventually settled down, as much as a free spirit like Bart ever settled, it was here in Hobbs with the ultimate love of his life, Mona. They were married in August of 1999, and he finally found a family where he was accepted unapologetically. Bart jumped into life in Hobbs with enthusiasm, joining the Brotherhood of 74 riding club, working for the city, and spending time with his new found family. He was so proud of his home, his wife, children and “mistress” his ”68 corvette that he loved working on. Bart was always up and about, doing the gardening and yardwork around his home, fixing things around the house and working on his car up until an accident robbed him of his health. Nothing could take away his spirit however, and he still made jokes, picked on the kids and just generally stirred the pot however he could. All in good fun, of course. At his core, Bart was a peacemaker, he wanted everyone around him to be happy and worked to resolve serious conflicts before they got bad. His good nature and devilish sense of humor will be dearly missed by everyone who loves him.
Preceding him in death are his parents, Bartlett Dickson and Alberta Cornell, sister Doreen Ross and brother Chad Dickson.
Left behind to remember him always are his beloved wife Mona Dickson, kids Jason Dickson, Eric Jauregui, Breann Ward, Angee Lariva-Parker, Amber Lariva-Parker and eight grandchildren, siblings Diane Hugdahl, Jeanne Hirokawa-Kaneohe, Mark Dickson (Pasha) and Rand Dickson (Mary). He is also survived by his best friend Bobby M., who never let him down and traveled miles to be by his side.
