On Friday night March 9th 2012 Rob Dixon paddled out in kayak on Indian Hills Lake near Cuba, Missouri... His kayak, paddle, and shoes were found the next morning, and his body was found floating 2 weeks later.... Rob was a builder, an artist, mason, a traveler, a skateboarder, and a contributing builder of spots such as Skatopia, St.Louis City Museum, Cement Land, Kings Highway, Hermann's Hole, also many other skateparks, ramps, D.I.Y. pools around the country... Robert was always down to help out his friends and family with a smile under his beard.... His travels, work & generosity are inspirational to all skaters who knew him. Even with a broken foot he would do concrete work all day and then tape it up and skate the next day..(shown here in the layback grind) All the best to Rob's family his brother Ed, and his many many friends.... His memory will live on forever in the concrete he finished and the blocks he set here in Hermann, and everywhere else he visited in his time here on earth...... A true friend he was... Thank you Rob..
