Truman H. DIxon - St. Joseph Church in Waycross
Truman has been a “hands-on servant” of the Lord for over half a century. He has been devoted to the parish through maintaining the facility since anyone can remember. He is a faithful member of the Knights of Columbus, organizing their ministry of building wheelchair ramps as well as showing up every Sunday to serve the children breakfast before Sunday school. He and his wife, Maryann, adopted three children and raised them in the church. His own father died when he was only two, so Truman grew up in poverty to become a father to many and a gentleman to all. The people of the parish overwhelmingly chose him because of his enduring humble service to others.
