Dickerson is survived by his wife, Mary, their two sons and two grandsons.

Dickerson became involved with collision repair at an early age, taking over the family business in Texas as a young man and working tirelessly for improvement of the entire industry through local associations and national initiatives.

As an early supporter of I-CAR more than three decades ago, Dickerson became an I-CAR Instructor. For the past 10 years, he worked full-time as a member of the I-CAR Field Operations team, most recently as performance training coordinator. Dickerson helped lead efforts to shift I-CAR’s Welding Training & Certification courses to an in-shop event and kept the program up-to-date. Training and mentoring every I-CAR welding instructor – and always providing quiet, calm and knowledgeable support to those in need – Dickerson earned the respect of the entire collision repair industry.
