Hello all, i’m trying to locate Rickey Dixon, born circa 1950 to Fred Dixon and Jacqueline Choquette. He is the half-brother of a DNA connection of mine.
He is probably unaware that he has an older half-sister in Montréal, QC. The only things that we know is that he was living with his parents in Toronto in 1953, as mentioned in the death notice of his grand-mother Sara Bourdeau Choquette mother of Jacqueline. Also, we know that the parents were still in Toronto in 1965 as per electoral list.

If anyone can give me a hint on this that would be much appreciated, specially from his half-sister who was left for adoption in Montréal in 1947 as her mother (Jacqueline) wasn’t married with her biological father and the parents of Jacqueline didn’t want her to keep the child...

Thanks in advance!

There is an obit for John Ernest Dixon 1949-2014 with a sympathy note by Rick Dixon. Cousin perhaps? John was buried in Pine Hills Cemetary Scarborough Ontario - you might contact them for family details. Also if you can see the address in 1965 track it via canada411.
Good luck.

Thanks for your quick reply.
Are you able to send me the link to the obit? I went to the site you sent but doesn’t seem to be able to find it. Also, not sure that i understand the canada 411 for 1965 reference?
Regards, Sylvie

canada411 has phone numbers and addresses for all of canada you can search by address as well as name. Click on search for a person - more search options.
With common names the addresses/location and occupations are quite helpful. If you can't go back thru the family try sideways to cousins. You can email the cemetary for family contact although I'm not sure how much they can tell you.
Good luck.

The actual obit may be outdated on the funeral website as it does not show ...

Our thoughts are with you Marion especially when at this difficult time the sharing of your loss with family was belated.
