Terry Michael Dickey was a native of Allendale, South Carolina and was born on October 9,
1954, the son of Beatrice Kinard Dickey Mack of Dawson and the late Donald Dickey. He
resided in Dawson, Georgia most of his life. Mr. Dickey served in the U.S. Navy and was
employed as a carpenter at the time of his death. He was very talented in remodeling old
houses and could figure out how to fix anything. One of his favorite hobbies was astronomy and
he loved watching the stars and planets with his Orion telescope. Playing chess was also a fun
family activity for him. He collected arrowheads and archaeological remains and was intrigued
by science and history.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Robin Caroline Mack; a brother, Christopher Edward
Dickey; his step-father Robert Ulysses Mack; and his father, Donald Dickey. Survivors, in
addition to his mother, include his sister, Kathy Wiggins, of Athens, Georgia; his nephew, Motie
Wiggins, of Atlanta, Georgia; and his niece, Laura Slade Weishaar, of Los Angeles, California.
He is also survived by an extended family of many cousins.
Mr. Dickey enjoyed working at Seymour Southern Comforts in Bronwood, Georgia where he
established close and friendly relationships with many residents. He loved the outdoors and
especially his dog, Mena.
A private family gathering will be held in Fairfax, South Carolina at a later date to celebrate the
life of Mr. Dickey.
Memorials may be made to First Baptist Church, 309 Church Street, NE, Dawson, Georgia
