Obituary for Dicty Lavant Missouri

I am Dicty, knee baby to four other jewels. I was born on March 23, 1951, to the late Robert Benjamin and Cecilia Missouri. If you are reading this now, you know that I have gone home to be with my heavenly Father. “I am great, and God is good!” The Spirit of God put a little heaven in my heart. I did not hang my head or drag my feet, and don’t you do it either. The Word teaches us that as long as we are at home in the body, we are with faith in the Lord. “Mikaela, please take care of Charlie.”

Command Sergeant Major Retired (CSM RET.) Dicty Lavant Missouri, 68, finished his race on Wednesday, November 27, 2019, after numerous health challenges. He was a great Warrior, Husband, Father, Brother, and Friend. He confessed Christ at an early age and joined Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, Lacoochee, Florida. In 2002, he joined Hopewell, formerly First Baptist Church of Mandarin, and was baptized.

Dicty enlisted active duty in the United States Army in April 1971. He retired as a CSM (E9) after 30 years of meritorious service. In 1992, he completed the United States Army Sergeants Major Academy in Fort Bliss, Texas. During his extensive military career, he was awarded numerous decorations, medals, badges, citations, and campaign ribbons: the Meritorious Service Medal (3 awards), the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the Good Conduct Medal (9 awards), and many additional commendations of military service. He also held a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from McKendree College and a Master of Business Administration degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

He married the love of his life, the former Vivian A. Wormack (Babe), on August 30, 1980. To this union, one child was born, his princess, Mikaela Dominique’ Viviane Missouri.

He was preceded in death by his Father: Robert B. Missouri, Mother: Cecilia Missouri, and Brother: Robert Franklin Missouri.

He leaves precious and blessed memories with those who love him. A loving and dedicated wife: Vivian Missouri, an adorable daughter: Mikaela Dominique’ V. Missouri, two sisters: Laura Thomas (Willie O.) and Mary Missouri, one brother: Jimmy R. Missouri (Minnie), Sisters-In-Law: Gladys R. Missouri, Louise Meadows, Doris Wormack, Shannon M. Wormack, Constance I. Starks (Franklin), Christi L. Bennett (Victor), Rev. Stephanie W. McGhee (Terry), and Yolanda K. Womack, Brothers-In-Law: Richard B. Wormack, Rev. Willie L. Wormack, Donald W. Wormack, David M. Womack, and Samuel L. Womack; one devoted uncle: Rev. Johnny M.

Dicty Missouri, my friend, my brother and my mentor today I thought of you, from this point it want be nothing new. I thought of you yesterday and the day before that too. After hearing of your home going, I find myself smiling as I think of old times, and saying some of the things you would say. As I look at Old pictures which gave me flashes of great memories, I now keep those picture in a frame, because I know your memory is a keepsake from which I will never never part. My brother, God has you in his arms and I will always have you in my heart, rest CSM.
Mrs Vivian and Mikayla, I am praying for you both, You both have my deepest sympathy.
CSM (Ret) Larry and Karen Hester
