Billy Dixon, 35, is among the victims of the tragic Oakland Fire that has claimed the lives of so many other talented young artists, musicians, and individuals. This fundraiser is in direct response to individuals seeking to donate directly to Billy's family.
Billy will first and foremost be remembered by his countless friends and family members for his smile. A smile with the disarming qualities you'd expect from the most loving and charismatic of people. At his core, he was blessed with a bright and passionate soul that allowed him to touch the lives of anyone fortunate enough to ever spend time with him. He was a gentle and loving friend.
Billy was a tremendously gifted musician, he cherished creativity and exploration. He was in every sense a free-spirited artist and dedicated himself to making music.
We, those who remember our son, brother, lover, and friend - wish you an eternal peace and fair journey to wherever you find yourself next, Bill.
To anyone who is able, we call upon your help in this difficult time to ensure that we are able to honor Billy in life as he would've seen fit.
With your help, we will use donated funds to pay for:
- Funeral Expenses
- Travel Expenses
- Memorial Services
- Transportation of Billy's Possessions
- Preservation of Billy's Musical Works
Any EXTRA or ADDITIONAL funds we pledge to donate directly to support the community where Billy lived, worked and played - Oakland, California - to ensure a safer and more supportive environment for everyone.
