Alan Dixon Funeral plans announced

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Memorial services will be held next week for former U.S. Sen. Alan Dixon of Illinois.

Dixon died Sunday at age 86 at his home in Fairview Heights.

Dixon was an Illinois Democrat, and his career in national and state politics spanned more than 40 consecutive years in public office.

Dixon was in the U.S. Senate from 1981 to 1993. He served as the third-ranking Democrat and chaired a subcommittee of the Armed Services Committee.

Visitation will be Sunday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Lindenwood University’s auditorium in Belleville.

The funeral will be Monday at 11 a.m. at the same location.

A private burial for family and close friends will follow.
