Johnny Dickerson Memorial Raises Funds for Local Collision Programs

July 21, 2016

July 21, 2016—The Texas I-CAR committees have partnered to organize the inaugural Johnny Dickerson Memorial Golf Fundraiser to be held Oct. 8 at Firewheel Golf Park in Garland, Texas. 

Funds raised at the event will benefit local collision school programs through the Collision Repair Education Foundation. 

Johnny Dickerson was involved with I-CAR for more than 30 years. He worked with the field operations team as a performance training coordinator. Dickerson unexpectedly passed away in March of 2015. 

“Johnny was such a friend and mentor to not just me but so many people in the industry. Johnny impacted everyone in the industry through education, training and most importantly friendship,” Greg Babbitt, North Texas state chair for I-CAR, said. 

“To have the opportunity to gather Johnny’s family, friends and colleagues in his hometown of Garland and celebrate his life is truly an honor for us all here in Texas.” Chris Stilwell, South Texas state chair for I-CAR said. “Being able to support Texas schools through the Collision Repair Education Foundation at the same time is icing on the cake! ”
