John David Dickey, 65, passed away peacefully Sunday, October 2,2022 in Omaha with family members by his side.
John was a graduate from Omaha North High School in 1975 and soon after enlisted in the United States Army to become an Air Traffic Controller. After the Army, he married and had two children, Christopher and Jessica. He loved family, softball, Nebraska Football and North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball. You could find him cheering on the Huskers every Saturday during the football season and hosting huge Husker parties. John remarried and moved on to join the Millard Public Schools I.T. team for the remainder of his career life. He became a Mason and joined Tangier Shrine in their Legion of Honor division. He was proud to hold the flags and march with his brothers down many parade paths and every year at the circus.
He loved spending time with family, friends and mostly his grandchildren. In his final years, after his wife’s passing, he was able to find love again and remarry one last time. He enjoyed his last years doing what he loved.
We know we cannot have you but we are happy knowing the angels have finally wrapped their wings around you and you are happy and at peace again.
