Obituary

Terre Haute – Aleck Edward Dickson left this world and went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 12, 2022, at the age of 94.  He was born in Detroit Michigan on May 30, 1927, the oldest child of Aleck Leroy Dickson and Helen (Whitmore) Dickson.  He was a member of the Eastside church of Christ at the time of his passing.

Aleck met the love of his life, Lillie Eloise Stewart, in Andrews, Indiana and they were married on July 3rd, 1944.  This union brought forth 3 children.  Larry Alan in 1946, Martha Arlene in 1951 and Kathy Ann in 1956.

Aleck left high school and joined the U.S. Army near the end of WWII and served in Japan as part of the 7th Cavalry.  After his honorable discharge he began to earn his living as a roofer.  In 1953, he and his wife Eloise gave their lives to the Lord and were baptized by M. F. Cottrell at the 5th and McKeen St. Church of Christ.

Soon, Aleck felt the calling to preach the gospel and began preaching full time.  Over the next 60 plus years he served as the pulpit minister for multiple congregations in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.

Aleck is survived by his son Larry and wife Debbi of Marshall, Ill, his daughter Martha and husband Roger Elmore of Terre Haute his son-in-law David Adamson of Terre Haute; his sister Lois Myer of Alabama, his grandchildren Charlie Dickson and wife Linda, Mark Christie and wife Tracy, Carrie Mathis and husband Denver, Joe Christie, Dana Danford and husband Larren.  Also surviving are his great grandchildren, Jacob and Sylvia Adamson; Victoria, Noah and Engelend Aaron; Ceilidh and Keira Christie; June Christie.

Aleck was preceded in death by his wife Eloise in 2000, his second wife Anna Catherine (Young) Dickson in 2013, his sisters Marlene and Patty (dates unknown), his grandson Daren Adamson in 2018 and his youngest daughter Kathy Ann Adamson in 2020.

Aleck had many things he enjoyed doing during his long lifetime.  He loved to read his Bible and many times he would sit in his recliner and read for hours.  He loved to use his metal detector to find coins and jewelry.  He loved to be around his biological and his Christian family.  He loved to play games on his computer and could even be talked into a game of “hand and foot” when needed to fill a vacancy.  He never passed a yard sale that he could not find something he “needed”.

A “Celebration of Life” is planned for Saturday, April 23rd at 12:00 P.M. at the Eastside church of Christ at 4025 College Ave in Terre Haute.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the church or to the Wabash Valley Christian Youth Camp (Camp Wabashi) at 3525 E. Harlan Dr in Terre Haute.
